We are deeply saddened to report the passing of Neil Jenkins., who gave more than 50 years of devoted service to Wellington AFC, firstly as a player and then as a committee member, helping out in many ways including five years as Membership Secretary and countless stints of voluntary bar work.

We were all delighted when, in 2016, his work was formally recognised with the presentation of a special award from the Toolstation Western League.

However, most of all, we will remember him as a devoted and loving family man, who was always great company and had a wonderful sense of humour. He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him and our thoughts are with his wife, Shirley, and their family.

A minute’s silence in Neil’s memory was held before the first-team match at home to Roman Glass St George (photo below) and it was standing room only for his funeral at Taunton Deane Crematorium.
