The Club is saddened to learn of the passing of former player, Manager and Director Brian Honeywood.
Born in Chelmsford on May 8th 1949 he initially joined City as an apprentice alongside such players as Peter Collins and Bryan King. He left New Writtle Street to take up an apprenticeship at Ipswich Town signing professional forms for the Suffolk club in May 1967.
He did not make a first team appearance at Portman Road and moved to Colchester United in June 1968 making 17 Football league appearances for the Layer Road club.
Geoff Walker brought him back to City in the summer of 1969 and he made 51 appearances for City, principally at full back. He was released at the end of that season and moved to Canterbury City before quitting playing football to concentrating on his hairdressing business.
He had a two-game spell as City Manager in 1978 and alongside Peter Collins managed City’s youth team. Together they had a 120 game spell as joint Managers of Braintree Town between 1989 and 1992.
Brian returned to City during Peter Stroud’s spell as Chairman taking up the position on the Board of Director of Football. He was responsible for bringing to the Club many of the players that formed the exciting sides under Manager Gary Bellamy.
Brian’s son Lee also played for City in 1999.
The Club sends its sincere condolences to Brian’s family and friends at this sad time.
