Very sad to see that Tony Gale has passed away at his home in the US aged only 56. Many folks will remember Tony from local football in the 80s when he played for the original Clee Town and Clee Juniors and for Town Juniors and Reserves in the days of Dave Booth and Chris Nichol. Tony’s whole family were involved in football. Condolences to them.

"There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

Played against Tony countless times when he played for that excellent College Sunday team, he formed part of a top class midfield pairing with Graham Thompson and he was a  fine player and nice lad.
Taken far too soon.
RIP

We can't be far apart - I was at Toll Bar 1979-86 and played with Paul Wilkinson and George Kerr's son, Gary and Andy Usher who played for Clee as well. Great team.

I know the name Tony Gale but can't place him. Even so, very sad to see the lad has passed.


40+ years of black and white striped misery.

Was in the year below me at Toll Bar and he played in a very good school team with Paul Wilkinson. To be honest if you had said at the time one player from that team was going to have a top professional career then Tony Gale would have been top of the list.


The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you

We would have just missed each other. I was only there for the first year 76/77 before moving to Harold Street.

Very sad to hear, knew him and played in the same team when we were at Grimsby Boys and always had a chat when we played against each other through later years. Very good player and very nice person, much too young to go and my heart goes out to his family, RIP
