Bill Kenwright dies aged 78.

Post by Irish Alan » October 25, 2023, 1:24 am

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright, an acclaimed West End theatre and film producer, has died at the age of 78.

Kenwright had surgery to remove a cancerous tumour from his liver eight weeks ago.

He had been on the board at Everton since 1989, taking over as chairman at Goodison Park in 2004.

The Liverpudlian was also one of the UK's most successful theatre producers and played Gordon Clegg in Coronation Street between 1968 and 2012.

Kenwright was awarded a CBE for his services to film and theatre in the 2001 New Years Honours List.

Bill Kenwright died of a thing more tangible than a broken heart but it is hard to imagine he ever felt greater hurt than the day he was asked to stay away from Goodison Park.

His greatest critics will insist they loved Everton more, but that isn’t true. No one loved Everton more than Bill. He didn’t always know how to fix it, and that sometimes led him to make mistakes, but that love was Kenwright’s saving grace as an owner. His heart was in the right place. He was always trying his best. And he would have done anything to keep Everton from the mess they are in now.
