RIP Buster Footman - UPDATED with funeral arrangements

Recommended Posts

A one off.  Thanks for your service to our club Buster.  And thanks for your kindness to me many years ago with a charity football match.  A sad day for Bristol City. Thoughts with Buster’s family, friends and our players who must have their own special memories over many a year.

no, the 3-3 I think was Garland's benefit in 92 or 93ish (United had just won the title for the first time in years). That was a belting night! Great atmosphere for a friendly! BUster's Man U match I have no further details other than what I've gleaned from the net - apparently it was a largely U21 team they faced with Wes Brown the name that stands out. I have no recollection of this game at all and would love to know further details!! 

You are correct that it started advertised as a man utd 11, and Wes Brown was returning from an injury and wasn't the only recognised utd player

Very sad news. 

I remember Buster's testimonial match at Clevedon Town. Bob Taylor played along with Alan Walsh and many other City legends. There was a bar and a buffet after the match at the club where many of the players stayed behind for a chat and to sign autographs. 

I think Buster ended up in goal trying to save a penalty. 

An absolute legend and a stark reminder than it takes more than a squad of players to make a football club what it is. 

Rest in peace Buster.

I think that the majority of supporters (of all clubs) think most fondly of former players. It's a measure of the man that I hold Buster in as high regard as my favourIte players. Rest well, Sir. I certainly won't forget your character and individuality.

Fantastic character and another nod back to when football was so much better.Amazing that a non player was so popular with the fans.A very sad day for all of us that watched City during Buster's time there.R.I.P. Buster.
