Mr Kelly’s friend of over 25 years, Mark Brocklehurst, who is also a member of Bolton Lads & Girls Club Board said:

"We are devastated to hear the news of the deaths of Vincent and his brother Darren. It is a terrible tragedy that has seen us lose a wonderful powerhouse of a man, leaving us numb.

"There aren’t enough words to describe just how wonderful Vincent was - a dedicated family man with a generous heart of gold who was a perfect role model for all.”
