A message from Kevin McGoldrick's family.


To all of our friends, family and the greater footballing family,

Firstly, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your generosity and kind words about the passing of our beloved hero, aptly known to so many as Super Kev.

A man who really was the best. The most humble, selfless and caring individual you could ever care to meet.

The last few months have been so hard for us all and it is a true testament to the person Dad was that he was continuing his role at Slough Town up until New Year’s Day. He would just keep telling us about the amount of people who relied on him and the responsibilities he had. Well this is our responsibility now; to show him just how grateful we all are for having him in our lives.

Kev clearly meant so much to so many and so we would love to be able to accommodate you all at the funeral. Anyone who would like to is invited to pay their respects on Friday 9th February 2018.

Church service at 12:00
St Raphael's Church

There is parking available at all locations. If the car park is full around the church the nearby roads are free from restrictions.

Kev would be so embarrassed by all of the thanks, kind words and money that has been shared in the last week. As you probably know he would never accept any of this if he was here today. But, that is why doing this is important - so we can finally give something back. It has really has been a comfort to us reading your lovely messages (we will respond to them all, there have just been so many we do not know where to start) and the JustGiving page has astounded us. It absolutely relieves the financial implications of planning a funeral, so thank you.

Kev absolutely was ‘Mr Slough Town’ and the club have been utterly amazing in their ongoing love and support in the past few weeks. Players and management have gone above and beyond for us as a family; receiving calls and texts at all hours without hesitation. We know, more than ever what Dad saw in you all and as a thanks to Slough Town we ask that everyone wears Slough Town football shirts or amber/navy colours on the day. If you would like to purchase a replica shirt, please see Sue at the Club Shop at Arbour Park this Saturday (27th January) or next Tuesday (30th January). If you live further away, do not have a shirt and would like one for this occasion, please contact the club by email (shop@sloughtownfc.net).

Wherever Dad is we will continue to try to make him smile, to make him proud of the people we strive to be and we will start this with the day we have planned.

Due to the number of people expected we are suggesting that close family can buy flowers, or we will be taking donations for the Maggie's Centres - an unsung charity who are super helpful in managing the implications and paperwork regarding a cancer diagnosis. Please contact W Sherry & Sons Funeral Directors in Greenford for more details on 0208 8902 2385.

We will look forward to sharing our memories of our beloved Super Kev on Friday 9th February. Until then, let's all follow in his footsteps. If the world had more people like him, my goodness it would be a much better place.

With love and thanks from us all,

Kev's family xxx
