RIP Derek Pavis

Notts County are deeply saddened to report the passing of the club's former chairman, Derek Pavis. Derek, 87, passed away peacefully last night with his family by his side. He was one of the most successful of all Notts County chairmen in its long and proud history. He assumed that position in June 1987 and held it for 13 years before deciding, when he reached his 70th birthday, it was time to step aside. The most astute move he made in the early days was to recruit Neil Warnock, then manager of Scarborough, to take charge of team affairs. Bankrolled by his chairman’s money, Warnock assembled a squad of players which, uniquely in the game, achieved successive promotions through Wembley play
