Club Statement: Tom Grant

2 months ago By Ruth Hornby

Club mourns passing of a loyal supporter and volunteer.

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Brig committee member and supporter Tom Grant after a long illness.

Tom was a familiar face at Brig following the club both home and away, always smiling, even if things weren't going well on the pitch.

In addition to following the team he spent much of his spare time helping out at the club and spent many years as 'grounds maintenance supremo' doing odd jobs around Irongate.

Tom and his wife Janet also actively supported the club's social events and were key members of the team who have organised the club's beer festivals.

Everyone connected with Bamber Bridge FC would like to extend their condolences to Tom's wife Janet, their children John and Louise, and all their families at this very sad time.

R.I.P Tom.

Funeral arrangements: Tom's funeral will be held at Preston Crematorium, Longridge Road. Preston, PR2 5BY at 1pm on Tuesday 11 September and afterwards at Bamber Bridge FC.
