As our readers will now know, we have been saddened by the death of one of our most avid readers – who went by the name of Jimmy Magpie – and Jimmy was a regular contributor in the comments section of this blog.
“I have come on this blog to let regular posters know that the man you know as Jimmy Magpie passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday evening.”
“I and the rest of the family spent the last few hours with him, and he had the presence if mind to ask me to explain why their will be no more postings.”
“My uncle, who was also my best friend, was a lovely, generous, man who will be greatly missed by his large, loving family, and his wide circle of friends.”
“Legendary for his knowledge on the history and traditions of NUFC by all who knew him, he was well known at Benton behind the scenes by the medical staff in particular.”
“A gifted non-league footballer when he was younger, he also socialised with a handful of the current players who live in the neighbourhood. I will close in the way he would have approved.”
HOWAY THE LADS!
We respect the privacy and anonymity of Jimmy, and we are all very sad to hear of his death, and we pass on our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
We now hope the lads can get a win on Sunday against Manchester United – and we’re Jimmy will be watching from above.
Thanks, and rest in peace Jimmy.
