Sad news on the passing of a good friend and owl.

Recommended Posts

Geoff was a good friend, and possibly the nicest chap anyone could meet. A brilliant bloke.

Just been reminiscing about him with my Dad.

RIP Smiffy

RIP.  Think he sat not far away from me in the North, did he hang around with another bloke with long grey curly hair? 

Yeah, that's his best mate, John. They knew each other since they were kids.

Sad day.

He's spoken about the Wap and Corp many a time.

 

We are in contact with his sister with regards to getting something on the big screen or in the programme for the Barnsley game, we obviously want to make sure it's OK with his family first.  If they give the OK has anyone done this before, if so who is the best person to speak to at the club?

Great send off for Geoff today, had the Wednesday shirt (signed it appears by the team) on his coffin in the car and the picture they had up front was Geoff and Chansiri on the pitch at Hillsborough.

 

The place was full of rockers, felt a bit over-dressed in my shirt and tie :)

 

RIP Geoff, you'll be missed.
