great to hear from you Roz. I hope you and the family are all well. Ed was very much loved by all who knew him and his service in Firle showed that in buckets.What kind words. It means such a lot to me that he's still so well remembered and thought of 6 years on. I'm fine and happily now living with my dog Kit in the centre of Lewes. Ed is always in my heart.
For those of us who didn't know him the paragraph in italics is what we'll remember him for. His updates, analysis and explanations of the whole falmer saga were incredible and gave huge amounts of hope and positivity to us.Ed was a diamond. His contribution to where we are today cannot be stressed enough. There was many a time during the never-ending public inquiry process when the Albion's opponents would deliver what seemed to be a knockout blow to the club's hopes and dreams and Ed would single-handedly haul us back from the depths of despair by telling us that, actually, this latest apparent setback wasn't nearly as bad news as it at first appeared. He'd give detailed incisive reports of the progress of the Inquiry both on here and in the club programme. He sat through just about every day of that wretched process so we didn't have to. He knew, and was greatly respected by, all the major players on both sides.
Always a twinkle in the eye and a pint of Harveys and a fag close to hand, Ed was, as others have said, an absolute gentleman. It's a privilege to have known him
Ed being both remembered and highly thought of will never be in doubt on here, Roz.What kind words. It means such a lot to me that he's still so well remembered and thought of 6 years on. I'm fine and happily now living with my dog Kit in the centre of Lewes. Ed is always in my heart.
After your proposal at halftime on the Withdean pitch, a trip to the wedding was always going to be on the cards.A wonderful guy , he attended my wedding back in 2001.
Cannot believe it has been six years
