RIP Sean Kitson

The club was very sad to hear of the sudden passing away of supporter Sean Kitson last week. Until health issues prevented it, Sean was a permanent fixture at home and away games, more often than not alongside his wife Claire, who he first met on the Twerton Park terraces, and in-laws Paul and Alison Gibbons. He also served several years on the Supporters Club committee, helped in the club shop and his positive and well-thought out views meant he was one of the most respected City fans.

Claire has made the following statement:

Whilst Sean had many health conditions, what he died from came completely out of the blue. He was diagnosed with a Sarcoma which had spread. It was in his chest and stomach. We only got told this on the Saturday night (19th Sept) and also got told that time was short for Sean and we were looking at days rather than weeks or months. The hospital worked wonders to get Sean home on Sunday afternoon (20th Sept) and he passed away peacefully next to me in our bed in the early hours of Mon morning (21st Sept).

Sean’s funeral is being held on Friday 9th October. Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions we are limited with numbers at his funeral and all spaces are allocated. Bath City was a big part of his life so on our journey to the cemetery, we will be stopping at Twerton Park. If anybody would like to pay their respects to Sean, please be in the car park at Twerton Park. We anticipate to be there between 11.30-11.45am. Please if do come remember to social distance.

The thoughts of all connected with the Club are with Claire, Alison and Paul plus all Sean’s family and friends at this very sad and difficult time.
