Former Fan Of The Month Sadly Passes Away

15 April 2016

The club were saddened to learn of the death to former Sky Bet Fan of the Month Kenny Jones, who has sadly passed away aged 60.

Kenny followed Latics for 55 years and prior to the start of the 2014/15 season had not missed a game for over 11 years.
 
At the start of last season Kenny was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but he continued to follow Latics, home and away, missing just seven games.

Kenny was a familiar face around SportsDirect.com Park, selling programmes and Strike It Lucky tickets on match days.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.

Here is the video produced last season as Kenny won the Sky Bet Fan of the Month:
