A message from Argyle TTC secretary, Mark Jagger:
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Derek Mahen has passed away after his fight with cancer. In his later years Derek played first division table tennis in Angus Taylor's team for Argyle and was always willing to stand in at short notice for other teams.
Our thoughts are with his wife Frankie and the rest of his family.
His funeral will be held at Southport Crematorium on Thursday 16th August at 1.20pm and afterwards at the Sparrowhawk at Woodvale. Sympathy cards can be sent to the family at 23 Gores Lane Formby L37 3NT".
