Everton Football Club is mourning the loss of their esteemed Chairman, Bill Kenwright, who sadly passed away at the age of 78. Kenwright had held the position for an impressive 19 years, taking the helm in 2004.
His journey with the Toffees began in 1989 when he joined the board as a member. A decade later, his True Blue Holdings consortium successfully acquired the club, propelling him to the role of vice-chairman. Even after the club was sold to Farhad Moshiri in 2016, Kenwright remained dedicated to his position.
In a heartfelt statement, Everton expressed their deep sorrow: “The club has suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of our chairman, Bill Kenwright. He was not only a chairman but also a leader, a friend, and an inspiration to all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his partner Jenny Seagrove, his daughter Lucy Kenwright, his grandchildren, and all those who had the privilege of knowing and loving him.”
