Today ( Wed) I attended the funeral of Billy Connor, Pauls Dad.
Along with me ( giving me a lift !! ) were representatives of Shildon Board of Directors, Management team and backroom staff, players and Supporters Club members. The church in Spennymoor was packed to the rafters with standing room only in places. This was a fine testament to a popular, friendly man, Billy, who will be sadly missed by all of us at Shildon. He was always talking to us in the bar about football, his son Paul of whom he was very, very proud and his love of wine ( white wine in summer, red wine in winter of course ). He was also extremely grateful that I sponsored Paul in the player sponsorship scheme, just a few words of thanks from Billy made the money well spent.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this very sad time.
R.I.P. Billy.

Well said Paul, the size of the congregation spoke volumes.
