Sending our sincere condolences to Vinnie

Club statement following the passing of his wife

7 July 2019

We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to Vinnie Jones and his family after his wife, Tanya, tragically died on Saturday.

Our Chief Executive, Joe Palmer, said: "Our thoughts are naturally with Vinnie and his family right now”.

Commercial Director Ivor Heller has most recently worked with Vinnie when he helped with our crowdfunding campaign and made a promotional video, which we were going to launch tomorrow.

Ivor said: "We are all deeply saddened. Vinnie has supported us and even gave us his FA Cup-winning medal. It is our turn to support him now."

Given these tragic circumstances, and entirely as matter of respect, we have decided not to broadcast the video for the foreseeable future.

Everyone connected with Wimbledon sends their thoughts and prayers to Vinnie and his family.
