The thoughts of the Club are with Mo and all his family. The details of Jamo’s funeral are as follows: Friday, 30th July, 12:15 Service at Christ the King church, Amos Ave, Newton Heath, Manchester, M40 2RS Followed by brief service at Blakeley Crematorium and then a wake at the Admiral Nelson pub, Failsworth.
