It is with great sadness that we announce the passing today of Ken Mort MBE
Ken was pretty much ‘Kidlington Youth’ in its early days and during his tenure at the club he fulfilled just about every role possible, through from team manager to club chairman.
Ken’s contributions to Kidlington Youth are too many to mention individually but some highlights include convincing the Armed Forces to allow him to have the original wooden clubhouse (which he transported and erected) and arranging the first exchange with our Dutch friends in RCL, an annual event that continues to this day.
His contributions to both Kidlington Youth FC and local football were rightly recognised by the awarding of the MBE
Details of Ken’s funeral will be announced in due course.
Meantime, everyone at Kidlington Youth FC offer their sincere condolences to his family at this difficult time
Rest in peace Ken
