Moors Fans Pay Tribute To Kenny Banks

The Club and its supporters paid an emotional tribute to Spennymoor legend Kenny Banks on Saturday as members of his family led a minute’s applause at The Brewery Field.

Kenny’s wife Chris, his daughter and son-in-law Joanne and Simon Bridge, along with his grandchildren Cassidy and Lola, and his sister and brother-in-law Kath and Brian Carr were all guests of the Club for the game against Runcorn Linnets.

Prior to kick-off, they went on to the pitch to join with the players of both sides, as well as staff and supporters all around the stadium in paying respects with a moving minute’s applause.

Kenny made over 700 appearances for Spennymoor United during the 1960s and 1970s, as the Club celebrated six league titles and four League Cup wins.

Not only was he revered as one of the finest players to pull on a Spennymoor shirt, but he was also one of the most talented across the non-league scene, winning three Amateur England caps and going on to manage Moors for a spell too.

The thoughts of everyone at the Club remain with Kenny’s family and friends.
