To all North Enders wherever you may be and whatever woes we have at 4am today after a cruel and gruelling struggle with Bowl Cancer my Dad ( rarely posted but SpamFritter on here ) passed at his home in Fulwood with his wife , myself and his two beloved daughters by his side having been present for the last two weeks and 6 nights fighting his last breath against this cruel disease aged 76

My Dad adored the club missed 2 League Home games in 55 Seasons prior to this season when he was too ill to use his Blackpool ticket but managed to watch it on the Big Screen , he has seen including friendlies Preston at over 100 Grounds and took me on from aged 4 and we went from the mid eighties until recent everywhere from Torquay on a Tuesday until his last away game Sheff Utd …he had a heart of gold and I will cherish memories including paying for two fans to get on at Plymouth who had lost there wallet and taking a couple of lads who had broken down back to Leyland - never wanted a thanks just loved real Nobbers …his face I’m sure will be recognisable to many of you North End have lost a Giant … god bless you Dad enjoy watching your team Dad from the sky above

RIP to your dad mate. I lost my father to bowel cancer also, so I completely understand what you've gone through there.

My father would of been in his mid seventies also, and used to watch Finney in his prime. Oh the stories..

It's the old school men like these that I've always looked up to. Those men where a different breed back then.

Your dad as mine had a good heart. And my dad made me love North End too!

RIP Brian

Sincere condolences to you and your family Mortis. Sounds like your Dad was a proper North End stalwart and a great father.
