It is with great sadness that Woburn and Wavendon Football Club announce the loss of Aidan (Aidy) Perry following a brave battle with cancer.
Aidy joined the Woburn and Wavendon Tornadoes at U7s and stayed with the team into their last season at U15 in 2021-2022.
Aidy was a fine player who was passionate about football and Woburn and Wavendon FC in particular. He loved being a part of the club and his Tornadoes team. He had a sweet left foot and liked to play as a winger and score goals. More importantly for Aidy though, was to do his bit for the team and he would play anywhere he was asked to by his coaches including many games as a goalkeeper.
Winning wasn’t important to Aidy, he just wanted to play football and be a part of his team. Aidy even played a full game for the Tornadoes whilst in pain with cancer when he had turned up mainly to support his pals – but the team only had 10 players and he didn’t want them to be shorthanded.
This says so much about Aidy and the type of character he was. As a club, we are extremely proud to be able to say that such a bright kind, caring, and devoted young man represented our club for so many seasons. He will be sorely missed by his teammates, coaches, and club supporters.
All our thoughts and prayers are with his mum Deb, dad Roland and Brother Reece and his wider family circle.
A minute’s applause will be held before all Woburn and Wavendon FC fixtures this weekend in memory of Aidy.
⚽️💙 May you Rest in Peace Aidy. 💙⚽️
