Sad News

This week has brought the sad news of the deaths of former City players Norman Corner and Dean Richards. Whilst both are to be regretted, the death of Dean Richards is particularly shocking given his young age. Deano was a cultured defender who moved from his humble Rhodesway roots to the very top of the English game. A great talent and a modest man as well. He had been coaching back at Valley Parade prior to his illness. On the day his death was announced three of his former clubs: City, Wolves and Southampton all won (Spurs had no game). Minutes before City's dramatic winner a rainbow appeared over Valley Parade. Perhaps it was Deano smiling down on us one last time? Our thoughts and hearts go out to the families of Norman and Dean.
