It is with deep regret and sadness that I have to report the passing of Ian Thorn our Head Coach.
Diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2011 Ian was an inspiration to us all as he bravely and calmly battled with the illness until he peacefully passed away on Wednesday 1st April. Ian’s funeral will be held on Thursday 16th April 2:30 at Immanuel Church, Graylingwell Chapel, Connolly Way, Chichester, PO19.
Ian, embraced our ethos of inclusivity and during the 9 seasons he coached at the Romans he would have helped hundreds of boys and girls not just to play football but to enjoy football.
Ian was a good coach and a good friend and we will miss him immensely.
We have yet to decide how to honour and remember Ian, but I will advise in due course.
Our thought’s are with Ian’s family, Vicky. Dani and Ryan
