THE funeral of Rhayader Town Football Club stalwart Brian Bufton will take place on Wednesday.

Mr Bufton was a familiar face to many across mid Wales through his lifelong support of the Red Kites.

Son Craig said: "As many of you will be aware, Dad sadly passed away peacefully on Sunday.


"The funeral will take place at Bethel Baptist Church, Rhayader on Wednesday 17th July at 1pm, followed by Cremation at Aberystwyth Crematorium at 3pm. Family flowers only.

"Donations will go to Builth Wells Junior Football Club and Rhayader Junior Football Club."

"To say we are devastated is an understatement, but we are so very lucky to have such a fantastic family and an incredible group of friends and neighbours who’s offers of help, support and kindness are getting us through this sad time."
