Will Clowes: you livened it up by starting a play fight

by huw15

Yesterday (6th May) the Hepworth United and Brighouse Town 15 year olds re-played the abandonded fixture of 13th March.  It was a fantastic game, which Town edged 7-5.  Both teams played some great football, and were pleased to see Town’s big centre forward (Matt Wensley) who Huw marked in matches for 7 years, recover from a nasty looking knee injury.  Matt is a great player and sportsman in the widest sense.  Hepworth as usual played with a great spirit and as a true team.  Sean’s penalty and celebration was a highlight, in the same way that other Hepworth goal scorers have done themselves proud in recent weeks.  The stoppers and providers have done equally well and here is a happy memory from early 2010 from  Hepworth’s last line of defence;  Will Clowes the keeper who also had a great game last night. 

Huw.  Words cannot describe how much everyone is missing you.  You had that quality about you that was so desireable; people looked up to you because of it.

You were a great guy, you had a fantastic personality and very popular as well.

We have had some good memories together in the past, for example when we were up at Far Lane that one time training in the pouring rain and wind, it was a miserable day but then you livened it up by starting a play fight with me in the middle of the pitch whilst everyone else was still playing!  It went on for quite a while in all!

Anyway, I am glad that I had the chance to meet you and you will be truly missed on and off the sports scene.

Rest in peace friend.  CLOWES!
