Wrens mourn death of Kim and Eileen Wright

Local non-league football side Rainworth Miners Welfare are trying to come to terms with the loss of two major faces at the club within five days of each other. Vice-Chairman Kim Wright, 55, and his 81-year-old mother Eileen, who was Honorary President, both lost their battles with cancer earlier this month.

Chairman Les Lee admits it's been a very tough time for the Wrens, saying: "We've had deaths before in the football family, but not like this. It leaves a massive hole at the club.

"Everybody's numb and football does not mean anything, it's not the priority, at the minute.

"We'll miss them."
