Tuesday was a sad day for local football with the news that Eric Dickerson had passed away. Eric was a long term club secretary and member of the SIL Management Committee. He was totally dedicated to Ipswich Exiles whom he is pictured with and a champion in the cause of Junior Football. In season 1989/90 he was awarded Junior Secretary of the Year and in 1998 the Meritorius Award for at least 25 years service in a non-playing capacity. His knowledge of rules and precedents that had been set was unsurpassed as well as his kindess and help in all football matters. A true gentleman of the game who will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
