The club are saddened to hear the terrible news that Lord Tony Greaves has suddenly passed away at his home in Colne.
Tony was a well known figure at Avenue games, travelling to home and away fixtures, when his parliamentary commitments allowed. A staunch supporter of the club, Tony was in the House of Lords as recently as January fighting the case for funding of the National League.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
RIP Lord Tony Greaves.
