Minutes Applause for Former WJYL Player Tom Jones

Posted: October 2, 2018 | Announcements | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m sure many of you will have read about Tom Jones (Jonah) the 18 year old Worcester uni student who went missing on a night out. His body was later found in the River Severn. Both youth football and West Bromwich Albion were a massive part of Tom’s life, himself playing at a competitive level.  We’ve been contacted by Lorraine Payne, a family friend, who suggested as a mark of respect we could invite all teams to join in a minutes applause before next Sunday’s games – we’re sure this would mean a great deal to his family and friends. If both teams are in agreement please advise players, parents and referees and I’m sure we’d all agree its a lovely tribute to pay to someone close to our league and teams.
Many thanks and our deepest condolences are sent to all of Tom’s friends and family.
