I got the shock of my life this morning when having a look at Twitter, and it was very sad news that shocked me unfortunately.
Once a poster of here and fellow blogger along with me on another site, Bowburn Mag, has sadly passed away.
Those who have been around a while will know who I’m talking about, but for those who don’t all I can say is that he was a top bloke with a cracking sense of humour and a zest for life that was infectious.
You know I actually thought about him the other day. I wondered where he’d been hiding and never even knew he was ill. Naturally this has come as quick the shock to me but all I can do is pass on my condolences to his wife and young family.
I’m not going to pretend we were best friends or anything like that. We spoke via e-mail a lot of the time although I did meet him once before a match in our Championship season and had a few pints with him. Even from that you could tell he was a top bloke.
RIP Bowburn Mag!
