The news of Nigel passing away came as a real shock to me. I love watching Speedway and Nigel was the main commentator for the Grand Prixs and British fixtures. 

He knew his Speedway. He loved this sport. He was also a fantastic commentator.

Im still in shock with this, a lovely man I had the pleasure to meet on a few occasions through my involvement in the sport of speedway, the speedway world and others have a major loss to deal with.

I can't speak highly enough of the man

Sad news

The Professional Darts Corporation expresses its condolences to the family and friends of former player Mike Gregory, who passed away on Tuesday aged 65.

 

Very sad, although I understand he had early onset dementia of late.

I remember Mike, long after his prime days, coming into our village pub and just thrashing everyone at 301, round-the-clock and cricket etc, but not being in the slightest bit flash or arrogant about it.  It was a rare evening that one, and I was happy to buy him a pint.

Farnham newspaper veteran Sir Ray Tindle dies aged 95 - BBC News

Wasn`t he the former owner of the WDP/EP? Back when it was a proper newspaper.

 

Might've been a shareholder, but Bristol United Press was an independent company until Northcliffe (of Daily Mail infamy) bought it and ruined it.

It must have been another paper I was thinking of - the Western Morning News maybe or the Express & Echo.

I think the Tindle Group ran mainly weekly or monthly papers in rural areas.  The Chew Valley Gazette was one of theirs and they had similar papers in Cornwall, Devon and elsewhere.

Got a feeling, thinking about it, that it might have been the Sunday Independent.

Prob on my own here but didn't like minder at all. The Sweeney was superb.

Will probably be remembered more for being a wife beater.

Interesting.

I remember him from his appearances in The Sweeney, which I used to enjoy, and Minder.

I also seem to recall he was with that red-haired beauty, Rula Lenska, who used to star in some all female cast series.

I was/am not aware of any wife beating stories.

Speaking about their marriage of 11 years, he confessed he had slapped and punched her twice, but added: 'She certainly wasn't a beaten wife, she was hit and that's different.'

Wow Andrew Symonds…. Another Aussie cricketer gone way too soon!

Very sad.

I remember watching him play for Glos in the mid 90s. What a player. Really hoping he would choose to play for England at that point. Always loved watching him play.  Very sad
