Bungay Town Football club

Richard Daniels' tribute to Aiden Lowe

11 September 2017

 I have had so many things happen to me in football, good and bad,success and despair,but as a manager I never have had to write something like this.

The news of Aiden Lowe's passing is nothing short of the worst of anything I have had to deal with, such a tragic loss, at such a young age.

A real football family, Dad David and mum Tracey, always supporting their boys, Dan, Matty and Aiden, always encouraging them to play the game the right way.

I have known Aiden since he was a young 16 year old at Kirkley. It was clear to me then that he was a talented player with so much ability. I kept an eye on his progress because I always treated David as a very good friend. It was with great pleasure that, when I returned to Bungay last season, Aiden agreed to re-join the club. For me it was a signing that I saw make us promotion challengers. At times, he could be a match winner on his own and what will stick in my mind was the 90 minutes he gave me away at Mundford last season. Simply brilliant.

He was a lovely lad to manage, if not sometimes hot headed, but ALWAYS wanted the team to win. I am sure he would go home on a Saturday night and have a moan to his dad about the way we did things but that was fine as I knew he was Bungay through and through.

His decision to move on never meant he was no longer a Bungay boy and his personality will always be missed. I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the whole club, that's EVERYBODY, to send his family our thoughts, deepest condolences and total sadness at the tragic and shocking loss of a lovely young man.

Aiden Lowe will NEVER be forgotten.

The Gaffa.
