Pat Jones

The club were extremely saddened to receive the news in January 2020 that former Club Member, stalwart and helper Pat Jones had passed away peacefully in Bournemouth where she lived with husband Alan. Pat suffered a major stroke some years ago after moving to Bournemouth and her health deteriorated recently. Alan has been Pat's rock and looked after Pat throughout.

Many at the club won't know Pat and Alan now but throughout the 70's, 80's and 90's you could not walk past the club without seeing them. Primarily involved in the Youth Set up and then later as the boys grew older, the Under 18's. Pat was always in Henry Tilly's sorting out kit for everyone, if you wanted boots, you went to Pat and an orange at half time Pat was always there. It was a very sad time when Pat and Alan decided to call it a day and move to the coast and even sadder now to lose "one of our own".

Pat is pictured at the Youth Tournament in Hamburg 2003, another institution that we used to have now sadly gone from the club.

Rest in Peace Pat, you deserve to.
