Dear Tom – I’ve struggled to know where to start, I could say so much. We met such a long long time ago – some 20 years, firstly in a professional capacity but quickly became good friends. We’ve shared so many fun times, debated often, argued a little, I’ve sought advice and critique from …

Amy Waldron

Tom I will treasure forever all the memories we have made (the good, the bad and the ugly). I will be forever greatful for all your support, guidance, mentoring and friendship. You have always pushed and supported me in ways you would never know, but for that it as allowed me to be the …

Steven Eastwood

Tom, you were more than just a manager but also a friend. I consider myself lucky to work with you and learn from you these years. You should be so proud of what you’ve achieved both professionally and personally. Your drive and moral compass to do what was right is something I have always …

It’s taken a long time for me to write this, and I still can’t find the words to say what you meant to me. It has been a pleasure working alongside you, learning from you and making a difference to the people of Wigan. You’ve not only developed me in a professional capacity but …

Dear Tom – I’m glad you lived life to the full. You made time for people, you loved your family and friends fiercely – especially ‘Mrs Flower’ who you spoke about often, and clearly adored.  You made an impact wherever you went. You’d have had an agenda ready for our next catch up, which …

Michael Colquhoun - Burnley FC in the Community

Like many, I was truly shocked to hear of Tom’s passing. Having only had the pleasure of Tom’s company a few times it was clear that this was a man who was a brilliant individual and one who was great to spend time with. Only 3 weeks before his passing, I enjoyed a few …

Ashley Hackett - Blackpool FC CT

Tom It’s taken a while to get to a point to put some words together, because it’s still difficult to get my head around the fact you’ve gone. For someone that committed their life to helping so many others, it’s truely unfair for your wife, family, Wigan community and the CCO network to lose …

Mike Summers

Tom, we only met on a couple of occasions, on ‘Leading from the Front’ training courses with the Premier League and of course a handful of Zoom calls.  I wish I had had the chance to get to know you better.  Everyone speaks so highly of you and your phenomenal impact at Wigan Athletic …
