It is with deep regret and sorrow that VMC learns of the passing of Bernard Halford.
He was a true ambassador for Manchester City and he will be sadly missed in the wider football family. In the past I worked closely with Bernard on a number of projects at both Maine Road and the Etihad, before the Club became what it is now. He was a true gent in every aspect of the word.
A great moment for Bernard will never be forgotten by the fans as he was first to hold up City’s first major trophy for 35 years in May 2011, when City won the FA Cup.
His energy, even going into his 70s was second to none and his passion for City and for grass roots football was admirable.
Our condolences go to his wife, Karen and the Halford family.
