Island player remembered by Bembridge FC

Graeme Bast

Bembridge FC have played a tribute match to former player Graeme Bast, who passed away this week, and joined other local Island clubs in sending their thoughts to Graeme’s family and friends.

Graeme was an outstanding footballer, a winner and a true leader, and played for several Island Clubs, including Bembridge and Whitecroft & Barton (W&B).

The Facebook page for W&B included the following tribute: “Basty” played three seasons for us between 2019 and 2022 and was a rock at the heart of our defence during our 2021 title-winning season, being awarded with the Players’ Player Award that year.

“Fiercely competitive on the pitch but an absolute gentleman off it, he will be sorely missed by all and we send our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Rest Easy Basty.”
