It is with great sadness that the club has learned that former director Stuart Tindall passed away yesterday morning.
Stuart was a life-long supporter of The Imps and as a young goalkeeper attended trials at the club.
Stuart joined the board of directors in 1999 to represent the interests of Lindum Group when they invested in the football club. He served under 4 chairman – John Reames, Rob Bradley, Steff Wright and Bob Dorrian – and gave a significant amount of his time in a number of roles at the club. His backing and encouragement, particularly during the difficult times of administration and then relegation from the Football League, played no small part in ensuring the club survived. His delight at seeing the recent success of the club was something he shared with family and friends alike.
Stuart was an extremely strong advocate of the club’s young players and was the board member responsible for the Academy for many years. He took particular interest in the development of local youngsters, especially those who went on to graduate to the professional ranks. He was active in supporting the club’s Health and Safety arrangements, match day management and liaison with Lincolnshire Police. He also worked with the Lincoln & District Football Supporters Club.
His building background made a huge contribution to the day-to-day running of the club and there were many projects that were completed purely as a result of Stuart’s contacts and generosity.
Stuart is universally remembered as a genuine and kind-hearted gentleman, a great ambassador for the football club and as someone who made a considerable contribution in a completely understated manner.
He will be missed by many club staff, officials and supporters.
The club would like to extend their sympathies and condolences to Stuart’s family and close friends.
