Wokingham & Emmbrook Football Club today mourn the loss of our icon Roy Merryweather.

Everyone associated with our football club knows it is Roy that put The Wokingham Town into Wokingham & Emmbrook FC.

Roy played for Wokingham Town FC in 1960s and managed Wokingham Town FC including during our most successful times in 1980s and 90s.

He went on to serve Wokingham Town FC in most capacities being instrumental to the growing of the community football club we have become today.

He made a massive contribution to our national game not least by founding and becoming chairman of the Allied Counties Youth League.

In a week when football is providing so much joy we celebrate the life of ‘Big Roy’ who gave so much to local football and especially Wokingham Town FC.

Our thoughts are with his wife Mary, and family Kevin, Karen and Sharon.

RIP BIG ROY.

Mark Ashwell
President
Wokingham & Emmbrook FC
