THE FUNERAL arrangements for Bromsgrove Sporting chairman Jon Prescott, who died suddenly on Tuesday morning, have been released.

Mr Prescott’s funeral will be held on Monday, July 25 at 12 noon at Wyre Forest Crematorium and Cemetary, Minster Road, with the wake being held at the Rouslers Bar inside the Victoria Ground afterwards.

A club statement said the funeral would not be a black tie event but the family of Mr Prescott have asked directors and officials from clubs and leagues to wear their respective coloured tie.

A coach will be leaving the Victora Ground after the funeral cortege and anybody wanting to book a seat should contact Ann Clissett on 07415 923555 to reserve a place.

Libby Mae’s Little Angels are also raising money for the funeral and donations can be made at https://www.gofundme.com/2eau9q2k.

Cheques should be made payable to Libby Mae’s (Jon Prescott wrote on the back) and these can then be sent to James Giles & Sons up to eight weeks following the funeral.

NEW SIGNING

ROUSLERS legend Chris Conway has re-signed for Bromsgrove Sporting after making the move across from fellow Midland League Division One side Littleton.

The 28-year-old forward, who is Sporting’s all-time top goalscorer with 61 goals, announced he was returning to the Victoria Ground at the end of Saturday’s pre-season friendly at Droitwich Spa.

Conway, who bagged 12 goals in 23 appearances for Littleton last season, had been training with the Rouslers and after impressing in the 10-0 and 3-1 wins over FC Stratford and Spa respectively, the striker has put pen to paper.

Talking on Twitter, Conway said: “I’m happy to announce this evening I have signed for Bromsgrove Sporting after agreeing personal terms and speaking over the past month to manager Paul Smith.

“I knew it was the right set up with such a good pre-season and manager and I hope to help Paul and the team win silverware in the coming season.

“I’d like to thank Andy Robbins and Andy Mason and everyone at Littleton for how great they were with me last season and how much I joked working with them.

“I can’t wait for the season ahead with my new team-mates and manager.”
