Thank you for all you've done. You've brought entertainment and discussion to the boring close-season gap over the years, and helped many clubs along the way.

RIP


Slightly off topic but I sent an email to a number of governing bodies as well as the new secretary of state for culture, media and sport, asking that Tony be commended for the great work he has done over the years. If anyone wants the appropriate contact details and/or a rough template for an email, PM me.

Re: [Jamesie] Final Whistle Has Been Blown [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I had been reading the posts about Tony for some time now, but this is the first time I am posting anything.

Maybe I hoped that somehow, Tony would make a miraculous recovery, even at a very late stage.

I didn't know Tony personally, and only had a couple of exchanges of posts with him, but I do feel the loss greatly. It is not merely the passing of a man, but the loss of the resources and resourcefulness that enabled him to develop his site into the most informative on the current state of the English leagues anywhere on the internet.

Very sad (but expected) news. Thanks for passing the information on to us, Stuart.

Your father will be remember by a countless number of people for many years for all the work he has done in providing information about non-league football. You should be immensely proud of him.

My thoughts are with you and with all your family at this time.
