It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Vinny Connor. Vinny passed away on 7th May a couple of weeks after his wife Pauline passed away. He had been a valued member of our Abbey family and will be missed. Please keep Vinny’s family in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.
Vinny’s funeral will be on 18th May. The Arrangements are as follows:
The funeral cortege will leave Vinny’s house at 9 am and will make its way to Manchester Crematorium. Whilst the funeral will be family only people will be allowed to watch Vinny leave his home (M19 3LE) whilst safe distancing.
Vinny leaves a long legacy in non-league football he will be sorely missed by everyone involved in grassroots football, Abbey Hey FC, East Levenshulme Football Club and other local clubs.
Our condolences to Collette (his Daughter) and his family
R.I.P to an absolute stalwart in non-league football!
