It is my sad duty to advise the wider Fishy family of the death of my dear friend Ron Rafferty fan club, who passed away at the weekend.

We worked together for many years at St. Andrews Hospice and St Andrews Children's Hospice where he volunteered, and our mutual love of GTFC brought us many happy memories! We tried to include GTFC in our fundraising activities wherever possible, and posters might remember the wear your GTFC shirt to work day, and the Santa run which included a couple of laps around Blundell Park, amongst others. We did lots of other stuff but we invariably chatted about GTFC whenever we could...

RRFC was a well-known teacher in the area before he retired and his wise words and sense of humour will be sorely missed.  


Always read his posts intently. Astute student of the game and great sense of humour with it..

RIP RRFC

Can I just thank everyone for their kind words on the passing of RRFC.

He went to live in Fakenham, Norfolk in his later years so the only real contact was via the Fishy. Every Saturday/Tuesday night we would chew the fat over the teams win, loss or draw via the private messaging facility and what we would do to put it right! Post-match will never be the same but I know he will still be discussing tactics in his own inimitable way.

It is all quite emotional but I am so pleased he was able to see and appreciate our beloved club is now in safe hands (and he left us with us top of the league!) and these are the sorts of things the new owners mentioned on taking over - this club is a huge part of peoples' lives and will continue to be for generations to come.

From the many messages on this thread it looked like Ron Rafferty Fan Club had quite a fan club of his own.

RIP

I didn't know RRFC - he was obviously well respected on here.
However I can empathise with his title - as kids when playing with coats & satchels as goal posts I was always Ron Rafferty. Out here not far from Liverpool & Manchester they didn't understand.
RIP both Ron's.
