Sad to announce massive Town fan Pete has passed away. Went to games with him over 30 years ago and used to bump into him at assorted shitholes around the uk. Had a beer with him after Accrington.
He didn't post on here but was a regular on the adver forum as swindon61uk.
He was a top bloke with a nasty collection of shirts.
RIP mate.

Don't think I ever met him or know him. But I remember his handle from the adver forum for some reason.  must have been a sane voice.

 Sorry for your and his families and friends loss

Didn't know him, but always sad to hear of the passing of a long term fan.

Did we ever find out what happened to the guy who did the fantastic match day threads and suddenly vanished?

I think that was Shaw Rosso. Not been active since Nov 14 so not looking great. Hope I got it wrong.

The name Skippy rings a bell from desolate Div 4 outposts in the early 80s where about 10 of us used to pitch up. Was he asthmatic? I seem to remember he travelled with a bunch of mates, one of whom was called Alex the Aardvark (don't ask).

Another one gone too early. RIP.

Yep that's the one red frog. He was asthmatic. It was Alex the aard vark who told me this morning. I had the honour of giving the aard vark his nickname. Millwall had Harry the dog Swindon had Alex the aard vark.
We must have known each other back in the day. At a wild guess is your name Colin or tim

Nope, and I hate to think what nickname you gave me.  Wink

Sorry for your loss. It's horrible losing your football mates. Some of your football journey ends with them.

Sorry to hear this, I knew him by name and by face but didn't chat to him too often.

As red Frog says I too spent many a match alongside him on desolate Northern outpost terraces like Halifax, Hartlepool, Chester etc etc back in the old Div 4 days when I never missed a match for about 6 years home and away. He was about my age too (52) I would say.

RIP.

30 years now and I've moved on and still we got the torys back in the chair
The current generation are out on the streets
With a whole new set of reasons to be fighting police
No justice and Stephen we know where to start
Gangs are busy tearing inner cities apart

30 years still living in a ghost town
Still dragging us down
Telling us the way we should live

I was probably alongside you as well. As for age, 57 same as me hence the 61 in his adver name.
