It is with great sadness that I have to write that Simon Kensett passed away earlier this week.
Simon was a great friend of the club over the years and whilst his son never played for Lyne FC, Simon initially helped me by running the Predators team a few season’s ago.
Simon then moved on to Halliford Colts where he set up and ran the U8 Elite squad – which over many friendlies with Pumas (who were U9 at the time) proved to a great challenge for us and an excellent stage of their development was given to master such a good opposition.
After recently moving on again, but this time with CB Hounslow, Simon continued his love for true grass-roots football by independently running “Simon’s Soccer School” on Saturday mornings.
In commemoration of Simon, his Soccer School took park in a Dad’s v Lads game this morning – for which I attended and laid a wreath on behalf of Lyne FC.
Our thoughts and condolences go out to Simon’s family at this sad time.
