Former Cambridge United and Peterborough manager Chris Turner, who later went on to serve as chairman of the latter side, dead at 64. He'd been suffering from frontal lobe dementia and was unable to feed himself, construct a sentence or maintain control of his bowels for at least six years, a pretty standard occurrence for anyone who spends that much time at London Road.

I don't want to sound mean, but just out of curious, did Mr Frank play football then?  :scratchhead:

"Mr. Frank was one of just five runners in North America with 900-plus marathons. The current leader is Larry Macon, 70, of San Antonio, Texas with 1,343. Irondequoit's Don McNelly, 94, is 36th on the list with 744."

*jotting down Don McNelly's name on a piece of paper....*

Already posted, though not yet commented on.

Perhaps cos it was in wrong thread..... He never played at the WC...

 

Yeah, though using the search function led me to DDT's original mention of this case in that thread.

 

He was part of the 1998 WC squad, but whether he played in any of the games is a different matter.

Edited to say that he played in the match against France 12th June 1998, against Demark on 18th June 1998 and Saudi Arabia 24th June 1998
