It is with deep regret and sadness that we inform you that Paul King, U9 Hurricanes Manager and Coach for the last couple of years, passed away last Weekend. We hope to speak to his wife when she is ready and will discuss with her how, as a Club, we can support her, the Family and the Team at this very difficult time. We are sure you will share with us your deepest sympathy for his family and ask you, on their behalf, to respect their privacy for the time being.
The Committee – WWFC
We have now been given the following information from Paul’s family:-
“Pauls’ funeral will be on Monday 30th April at 10.45 in the Oak Chapel of Crownhill Crematorium, followed by a celebration of his life (nibbles and a piss up) in the Hilton Hotel, Kent’s Hill.
Everyone welcome, but no morbid colours please… footie shirts and colourful clothes a must!!
Lastly no flowers please (we’ve got more than interflora at the mo), instead he’d appreciate a donation to help for heroes which can be done at the end of the service if you’d like to, or consider signing yourselves up to be an organ donor x”
ONE MINUTES’ APPLAUSE FOR PAUL
“Woburn & Wavendon FC has been deeply saddened by the sudden passing away of one of our team managers. Paul King coached and managed our Under 9 Hurricanes Team, and had been responsible for launching and developing the football journeys of many young players. In recognition of his energy and enthusiasm for his team, the Club and local grassroots football, we hope that you will join with us in 1 minutes’ applause ahead of all matches on 21st and 22nd April. Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s family at such a distressing time”.
