Just heard the sad news about Bob from Swinny,and I have just seen the news about Butch. Bob and I shared a set of golf clubs sold to us by Dave Tuplin, he had the even numbers and I had the odd numbers, and we played football together. Both were good men and will be sadly missed, my condolences to both families.
