It is with great sadness that the Club has to announce the death of Pat Probert.
Pat joined the Metropolitan Police as a cadet and was attested as a constable in 1965. An outstanding footballer, Pat represented the Met as a cadet starting as a left-winger but later converting to left side defence where he excelled. Pat was captain of the Met team for a number of years and was a first-team player for many seasons. Pat was renown as a hard-tackling defender.
Pat also represented the British Police national side on a number of occasions as well as his home County, Derbyshire.
Pat enjoyed a very successful and distinguished career, working in some high profile locations such as Brixton. He held the rank of Chief Superintendent before retirement in 1995.
Pat was a life member of the Met Police Football Club.
Our sincere condolences go to his wife Maureen and family at this very sad time.
