Club saddened by passing of former player…
STOKE CITY were saddened to learn of the death of Reginald Pickup, who was on the Club’s books in the late 1940s and early ‘50s.
Mr Pickup, who was 88 and lived in Chesterton, passed away last week after a brave battle with illness.
An inside left, he made one recorded Football League appearance for the Potters in a 0-0 draw against Huddersfield Town in 1949.
He later went on to play for Stafford Rangers and in later years was a keen follower of our fortunes, regularly attending matches with his son Ryan, 21.
The Club extends sincere condolences to his wife Sandra, sons Ryan and Neil, sister-in-law Wendy, his extended family and friends.
