IN MEMORY: RICK WRIGHT

14 December 2012


Cardiff City are deeply saddened by the passing of our former Chairman Rick Wright and our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.


Rick was a forward-thinking Chairman who left a lasting legacy at the club. He strengthened the club's fan base during the early-nineties and safeguarded the club's next generation of supporters, not least by launching the Junior Bluebirds Supporters Club.


During his time as Chairman, the club also flourished on the field, gaining promotion to the old Second Division under the management of the late Eddie May. Rick's support for the manager and all round vision brought players to the club during this period who supporters still talk about today.


As a mark of respect, the club's players will wear black armbands during Saturday's fixture with Peterborough United and we encourage our fans to pay tribute to Rick with a spontaneous minute’s applause ahead of kick-off.
