A Sad Farewell To An Arsenal Legend
News filtered through late on Thursday afternoon that Paddy Galligan, a Highbury stadium employee (for want of a better word) of 28 years had past away.
Patrick 'Paddy` Galligan was well known to players past and present as he worked for the club for many years, sorting out the dressing rooms, collecting the turnstyle counts and many other responsibilites.
Patrick was apparently set to 'retire' from his duties this year after the move to new stadium, but as he lived in a flat at Highbury he got to spend his last days at the place he loved the most.
According to Arsenal.com Paddy also appeared on the opening credits of Match of the day at one point also.
Vital Arsenal would like to wish his family our deepest condolences.
Rest in peace Paddy.
