THE MUM of a footballer who was killed while on a night out has died after being diagnosed with cancer.
Jordan Sinnott died in January 2020 aged 25 after being attacked by three drunk and violent thugs in Retford, Nottinghamshire.
Just a week after Sinnott’s funeral, his partner Kelly found out she was 12 weeks pregnant with their daughter Maisie.
And now in another strike of tragedy for the family his mum Melanie Tait has died after a battle with cancer.
Melanie had spent her final years setting up a charity in honor of her son – and did a sponsored sky dive in his honor earlier this year.
In a post on Facebook on Sunday the trust said: “It’s with the heaviest of hearts we would like to share the devastating news that yesterday after a long fight with cancer, our beautiful Melanie has gained her wings.
“We are utterly heartbroken.
“Give Jord a big cuddle from us Mel, we love you both unconditionally.”
