GLEN ARNOLD

 

Good morning all, 

I hope that this email finds you well,

Unfrortunately this horrible year has struck again, it is with great sadness that I have to report the

passing this morning after a short illness of Glen Arnold. 

As you all know Glen was an important player for Trevor during our successful seasons, and we always

had fun whilst playing.

Glen was also a good player in Crown Green Bowls playing for Plaskynaston and the Royston.

During his younger days Glen was a very good footballer and had trails with Blackpool at one time.

We are all deeply shocked and saddened at Trevor with the loss of Glen and the club won`t be the

same without him.

I`m sure that you all will join us all at Trevor in sending Ann and family our sincere condolences on this

very sad occasion.

RIP Glen you will be sadly missed.

 

Regards
