Oldham's Kenny Jones Receives Fan Of The Month Award

17 March 2015

Our very own Kenny Jones has been named the Sky Bet League 1 Fan of the Month for February.

Kenny has followed Latics for 55 years and prior to the start of this season had not missed a game for 11 years.
 
At the start of this season Kenny was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but he has continued to follow Oldham, home and away, missing just seven games.
 
The club arranged a birthday party on Saturday for Kenny, with many current and former players attending.
 
Kenny said: "It is fantastic that the club nominated me for the award. When I was selected as the winner by the judging panel I thought it was a joke.
 
"I started following the club because of my father and grandad's love of Oldham. I have taken on my grandad's collection of programmes and managed to increase it to over a thousand.
 
"I have a lot of highlights from over the years. But when Sir Tom Finney arranged a lift home for me after we played Preston away stands out the most."
 
Latics' commercial manager and supporter liaison officer Jenny Warburton said: "Kenny has supported Latics through thick and thin for close on 55 years.
 
"Even now, during his illness, he will not let his team down and is there to support his beloved side.
 
"Kenny is the salt of the earth and deserves this recognition from Sky Bet for his dedication to Oldham Athletic."
 
Kenny’s Sky Bet League 1 prediction:

Oldham 2 MK Dons 0 – Jonathan Forte first goal scorer (40/1– subject to change)
Crewe 0 Oldham 2 – Dominic Poleon first goal scorer
Oldham 1 Bristol City 0 – Mike Jones first goal scorer
Crawley 1 Oldham 1 – Goalkeeper Jake Kean first goal scorer
 
If Kenny was to win the £250,000 transfer fund he would buy former Oldham loanee Daniel Johnson from Preston North End!
