A regular in the Pontoon stand. Diagnosed with cancer just before Christmas and passed away middle of January at just 58 years old.
There was a full page picture of him in the German magazine, 11 Freunde, when they did an article on us, but I can’t figure out how to post the pic.

Crikey. 58. No age.

Didn’t know you but RIP Mark.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I didn't understand everything in that article but with my basic German it read as a pretty good testament to Town's support when we played Donny.... probably one of those away games which Mark will have made.

A fitting tribute to the passion Mariners' fans have...  GTID
