Memorial partnership with JT Byrne Funeral Directors

4 January 2016

Club unveiled a plaque at Highbury on Saturday

Following the 'Fleetwood Remembers' tribute to fans who passed away in 2015 at the Bury game last weekend, the Club have launched a memorial partnership with JT Byrne Funeral Directors.

The family firm based in Fleetwood, Thornton and Cleveleys are a long standing Club sponsor, and have now launched a unique way for families to commemorate loved ones with a personalised plaque that will be placed at the back of the Memorial Stand terracing at Highbury.

Martin Booker, Head of Commercial, said: "Our partnership with JT Byrne Funeral Directors offers supporters a really nice way to remember loved ones here at Highbury Stadium.

"Saturday's game was a fitting way to launch the service with a commemorative plaque and with the firm donating the first plaque to Lee Pryers, a former Town player who died in 2011."

John Byrne, from the family firm said: "As a company we have built a strong partnership with Fleetwood Town and have been working closely with the club to develop a fitting memorial tribute to fans that have passed away.

"Whilst serving families within the local community we understand how comforting a lasting memorial can be. We feel privileged to be able to offer the opportunity to help families remember a loved one in such a special and unique way."

If you would like to remember any family or friends with a commemorative plaque at Highbury please contact John or Angela at JT Byrne Funeral Directors on 01253 776281 for details.
