Ernie's Funeral

Ernie's Funeral
The following was posted on the Oldham Athletic Forum this morning:

'Morning all.

Ernie's funeral has been set for Monday 21st July at 10,30am.

It will take place at St.James' Church, Jamaica Rd, Bermondsey, London (close to millwall's ground).

The family have said that as many people as possible are welcome at the service which will be beamed outside on screens once the Church is full.

They have also requested to see as many Oldham , Rochdale shirts etc as possible outside the church to bring a real splash of colour.

There will be speakers at the service including Iain Dowie, and others close to Ernie and his family...

Best wishes



Oldham are also looking at putting on a coach if there is enough demand for it. Hopefully a few Rochdale fans can turn out to mark the occasion.

Did not realise he was a Londoner - great gesture by the family.
