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.

Didn’t know him but it’s always sad to see these posts. RIP and let’s hope he’s chatting with the real Ron Rafferty right this minute.

First post for a while such sad news to come back to.

We did not know each other but started supporting town about the same time 1955.

We had some good chats on here over the years and I will miss him RIP fellow mariner.
