Officials from Bromsgrove Sporting represented the club at the funeral of Thomas Jones on Friday 9th November.
Chairman Mike Burke and Head of Press and Communications Phil Baker paid their respects at the service.
Mike commented on what he referred to as a ‘touching send off’: “Hundreds of people filled the crematorium, many listening from adjoining areas inside the building.
“No one was untouched by the deep sense of loss, alongside the celebration of a life of someone so respected and loved.
“Our thoughts remain with Tom’s family.”
Tom, who was deeply involved in the Sporting youth set-up at many ages, went missing after a night out in Worcester, where he had gone to start university.
His body was tragically found on 28th September in the River Severn.
