Rick Farrell RIP

Nov 13, 2006
Heard the tragic news last night, that yet another one of great fans ( Rick Farrell ). passed away 2 days ago of the dreaded 'C'.
What makes it worse is that 2 months ago he was out with several of us for a mini reunion in The Elms, & he was fine then.
Rick's been watching the Blues since the mid 60's, was a true 'Leighite' like some of us on here, & for the last 13 odd years worked at Waitrose in Southend.
He came to Plymouth & Tranmere with several of us back in 75, when The Brothers Grimm organised those first 2 day weekend trips, & also hitched it up to Southport & back over the Easter Hols in April 72 with a few others.
Gonna miss you big time good friend. RIP Rick.x
