It is with sadness that we have learned that Clive Lyons, once TFC assistant manager, assistant reserve team manager and youth team manager passed away earlier this week. He was diagnosed with cancer only a few short months ago and after a spell in hospital he returned home to spend his last few days with his family.
During his time at The Lamb Clive was assistant manager of the successful youth team alongside his long time friend Paul Wood and in recent years he had been working with Aston Villa at Bodymoor Heath looking after the young players who were away from home and staying in the Tamworth area. His family have requested that any donations in memory of Clive are forwarded onto The Acorns Charity.
Clive will be missed by the local footballing community and we will hold a minutes silence in his memory before kick off on Saturday. His funeral will be held at Coleshill church on Wednesday 18 Nov at 11am.
