Bill Kenwright Memorial Service

Bill Kenwright Memorial Service

The memorial service for Bill Kenwright took place yesterday with many paying tribute to Everton’s longest serving Chairman. [EFC]

A number of Everton legends were in attendance for the service, including Adrian Heath:

“He always kept in touch - as soon as you left Everton you were never forgotten, as far as Bill was concerned. I went to one (a show) in New York with him and he invited me and my wife. I remember him telling Joan Rivers for about three hours how good I was, so he made me feel good. He never let us forget who we played for. As I say, he’s going to be sorely missed by a lot of people.” [Echo]

Major figures from football and the arts celebrated the life of a man hailed as a giant of both worlds. [Echo]

It’s hard to put into words but the respect I have for that group looking after themselves and us... it’s basically common sense but it’s not easy when you’re not playing to just absolutely stick to your task - train right, look after yourself - because when your chance comes, you have to go in and play well.
