A message for all that the funeral service for our great friend and Cray Wanderers legend, Dave Jackson will take place on Thursday 12th December at 11 am.

The funeral will be at Kemnal Cemetery (next to Flamingo Park, A20 Sidcup By-Pass, BR7 6RR) and will be followed by a gathering at our old ground of Oxford Road, Sidcup to commemorate and celebrate the life of Dave.

We’ve had note from Dave’s wife Jeanne and daughter Lorraine that all are welcome to come and say a farewell to someone so special to so many of us.  At the gathering there will be a ‘memorial’ table where items can be left to remember Dave and add special memories of a great man. If there are any more details to follow these will be posted here.

Please see here details of the chosen charity for donations as requested by Dave’s family. Dave’s grand-daughter Mollie-Rose has set up a JustGiving page for donations which will go the Football Beyond Borders charity. When making donations please leave your name for feedback. This would be something dear to Dave’s heart having spent so much of his life in football and giving so much to the game. 


FBB exist to tackle the twin issue of educational underachievement and school exclusions. Over half of all permanent exclusions are given to pupils aged 13/14. Our football-themed, literacy & behaviour for learning curriculum put a young person’s passion for football at the heart of their education.
