Derby County is saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Bullions.

Bullions, who was 90, was part of Derby’s 1946 FA Cup winning side and was a regular visitor at the iPro Stadium until he fell ill last year.

Derby County’s Chief Operating Officer John Vicars said: “Our condolences go out to the family and friends of Jim Bullions at this difficult time.

“Jim, as a former player, was always welcome at Derby County and he was certainly a popular figure when he attended matches here at the iPro Stadium and I know that I speak for many of our supporters when I say he will be greatly missed.”

He added: “The Club has been in discussion with Jim’s family and will be making a donation to Parkinson’s UK.”

His funeral will be held on Thursday 3rd July 2014 at St James the Greater Church, Barlborough from 11.30am.
