DEATH OF ANDY MARCZEWSKI
It is with the greatest sadness that we have learned of the death of Dr Andy Marczewski after a long illness borne with stoicism, determination and his trademark sense of humour.
Our deepest sympathies are extended to his wife Katy, Joe, Jack, Jessie and all his family and friends.
Andy held a key role as tour Coordinator in the youth team in which his son Jack played (that would now be the Under 30’s!).
Secretary Andy Pott recalls that Andy organised superb tours to Holland, Italy (twice) and Belgium, for the youth team and their parents as well as being the team's Doctor.
Andy continued “He also had a superb sense of humour. Two instances that remain in my memory are:-
In a match against Ipswich a boy was injured. The referee who spent the entire game at least 40 metres behind the play eventually got to the scene and ushered away Andy and others who were there. Within a few seconds it was clear that he had no idea what to do and Andy quietly said to him “When you think it appropriate to ask for a Doctor, he is here”.
“The other instance occurred during the tour in Holland when a player received a knee injury. I suggested that we ask Simon Donell, one of the world's specialist knee surgeons, who was on the next door pitch should come over and take a look. Andy said “I'm afraid that you don't understand the way the medical profession works. A Doctor can go to his patient but if you want to see a consultant the patient has to be taken to him.”
As the webmaster is operating whilst on holiday and with no access to photo archives, this photo of Andy has been pinched from his own Facebook page. Hopefully nobody will mind.
RIP Andy, it’s been an honour.
