Not a player but a NL football supporter/author/programme collector some of you may have heard of

That is sad news about Dave Roberts.

I read his book 32 Programmes a few years ago, a book - related to our hobby - which many on this forum might identify with.

He lived in Guiseley and became a regular at Guiseley home games, got to know him well. He was a lovely guy. Sadly he knew his fate a few months ago, spent too many nights in Leeds hospital over the last few weeks. A write up about him in today’s programme, RIP mate.

Sad news


I really enjoyed his 32 programmes.....a book that understand the psyche of the football fan /collector....and with a surprisingly high Plymouth Argyle content.

I'll probably go back and reread now Smile

RIP
