I've just heard the very sad news that Steve Plowes one of the original contributors to "Sing When We're Fishing" has passed away.
Steve was a great Town fan long exiled to the Blackpool coast blessed with a brilliant sense of (often gallows) humour.

R.I.P. Steve.


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Only know the name, not the man, but SWWF is and always will be a great part of our history.

RIP fellow Mariner.

Through bloody inept management of a football club that's how

That's really sad news. A long serving, dyed-in-the-wool Mariner. I remember talking to him when ordering copies of SWWF. Always warm, funny, helpful and philosophical. It might be too much to ask that the club mark his passing with a minute's silence or applause, but it would be good if the Trust and club acknowledged his devotion and humour in some way.

So sad to hear of Steves’ passing. I for one thoroughly enjoyed his wit and humour. RIP

I met Steve a couple of times a few years back. An avid Mariner and a great character too.

Very sad news.

RIP Steve

Also remember the name fondly, great sense of humour with some sharp insights into football matters too. How sad.

Sing When You're Fishing, Steve. RIP

I am very sad to hear this. Steve and I corresponded regularly when I was writing for SWWF. He came across a very clever and very funny guy.

I remember one time when he rang up a radio phone in to speak to then manager Brian Laws, not long after the Ivano Bonetti incident. He was no fan of Laws, and he said 'Brian, I have to say you are a fanzine writers dream!'.

Sad news indeed.  

RIP.
