NEVILLE Jones completed his final lap of the track today.

His funeral started at the Warrington Athletics Club track where he had spent so much of his life after devoting 60 years to the sport.

Family, clubmates and friends gathered to see the Orford window cleaner do a 400m circuit for the last time.

Today's fog fall made for an eerie start to Nev's farewell, followed by the final leg of his journey to Walton Lea Crematorium.

It was almost as if the spirit of Nev filled the air, taking one last look at his happy place.

And it has already been said many times, the track will never be the same without this selfless character who touched the hearts and sporting careers of thousands.

Nev died on December 19.

He had been in hospital since being found collapsed at his home on the morning of the club's last Walton Gardens schools cross-country race on December 8.

A club statement at the time, reaching out to Nev, said: "To Neville, our most valued and longest-serving member - rest in peace.

"You will be forever remembered in all the club’s future successes. Thank you for all you have done for the club and from athletes new and old."

He was the club's longest-serving and highly valued member, from his early days as a runner to his coaching roles and general all-round club assistance as a loyal and dedicated unsung hero.

Farewell champ and rest in peace.
