Sounds like a great guy, born just down from where I live in Port Talbot wish I'd known that before. RIP John

What a fantastic obituary. He was a great poster on here and clearly an all-round wonderful bloke. He will be sorely missed. Condolences to his family, I hope they can take some comfort from the fact that he was so well liked and respected. And his chilli relish was superb!

A very nice bloke he always had me scratching my head when he played the word games on here. He told me he went on countdown and was a three times winner no wonder he was good at our game.

He will be missed by many both sides of the border.

A very fitting tribute to a man I was proud to call a friend. It still hasn't sunk in that when normal GTFC service is resumed I won't be getting my orders to attend some real ale pub when Town are playing anywhere north of Manchester.

Miss ya buddy x


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