Sad News – Tim Dunne

Many of you may have already heard the sad news that Tim Dunne, coach of WBC Hurricanes u14s passed away whilst cycling with his son Louis on holiday in Majorca. As well as his role in WBC, Tim was a coach at 2 junior swimming clubs (Portland and Rushcliffe) as well as supporting the 4LifeTriathlon club.

Tim was a true inspiration to many young people in our club and others and will be sorely missed. Our deepest condolences and thoughts go to Michelle, Louis and Ruby.

The funeral will be held at St Giles Church, West Bridgford on Tuesday 23rd August at 11am. There will be private family committal at Wilford Hill.

The family have requested no flowers but donations to support the 4 sporting clubs Tim was involved with can be made via the Just Giving page.

Tim Dunne -Just Giving


Welcome to West Bridgford Colts. Founded in 1990, we now have over 70 teams, ranging from training groups for youngsters through to the veteran’s and men’s teams; and including a thriving girls & ladies’ section. Our founding principle, which remains true to this day, is to provide football for as many local children as we can. This is why the club has grown so big and so popular; and this is why our men’s & ladies teams still have many a player who has come up through the age groups with the club. Rather than see the size of the club as a burden, we see it as something to celebrate – the more people that play this beautiful game, the better. We strive to find a place for all, and then nurture all our young players carefully, so as they develop a lifelong love of the game. We have many a team that has won League titles and cups, but just as important to us are the numerous sportsmanship awards the club has collected, and we are fully behind the FA’s Respect campaign. We aim to win with style and lose with dignity. The slogan for our ‘mini colts’ section (which serves the youngest players in the club) is ‘enjoyment development respect’ – and we do not lose sight of those words as players get older. We are a long time FA Charter Standard club, and have just been awarded their prestigious Community Status.
