A very sad loss, it's good that the FA and Football League have both pulled their fingers out this week and done something to honour him.

It will be a fitting tribute to a gentleman of the game, I always remember him scoring a hat trick for Grimbsy against Rovers in the late 80's when he gave us a really difficult night.

53 is so young and it will be a fitting tribute to the big man that he gets 3 points for his send off...R.I.P.
