The club is deeply saddened to have to announce the death yesterday of Mrs.Gladys Shepherd wife of former Whitehaven director Kenny Shepherd. The club's sympathy goes out to Kenny and all his family. Club chairman Tom Todd said "I have known Gladys and Kenny for over 45 years, for once I find myself so short of words. Kenny is one of those men who has given so much to the game that I couldn't begin here to write it down, those who know him know his deeds. Gladys was a stalwart to Kenny and served in the old canteen and in the players tea room for many years. As one gets older you realise that of all the things you miss it's friends that are irreplaceable."
