THE funeral of Faversham Town’s ex-player and assistant manager Bob Heward will take place on Tuesday 28th August at 11am.

“Please join us for a celebration of Bob's life.” Jonathan Heward, son
Friends of Bob, who knew the diehard Lilywhite from his tireless work for the club over decades, are invited to join his family at the service.
It will take place at the Garden of England Crematorium, Sheppey Way, Bobbing, Sittingbourne ME9 8GZ.
After the hour-long service, family and his friends will make their way back to Faversham Town Football Club, where there will be refreshments.
Son Jonathan said all who knew Bob from his time at the club would be very welcome.
He added: “Please join us for a celebration and, undoubtedly, a story-telling session of Bob and his life’s exploits.
“He loved and respected everyone he met, and would want you all to be part of his life’s story. I sincerely hope you can be part of it. Myself and my family look forward to seeing you there.”
Bob was born and bred in Faversham and played for Town in the late 60s, as a left back, before managing the reserves in the 1980s.
In 1984, he was appointed first team assistant manager alongside Pat Miles for two seasons as the club competed in the Kent League.
When Faversham Town reformed in 2005, Bob was again one of the key figures in the revival.
He remained one of the hard-working Monday Club volunteers, who help at the stadium each week, until very recently.
