Thanks all. He went peacefully in the end. His dementia had really got worse recently then he fell and shattered his hip couple of weeks ago so was obviously in a lot of pain. In a way it was a blessing no more pain and suffering now Cyril. Best Dad ever. Some of the stories I have heard about him recently about his days at FP have meant the world to me. Thanks to Olly, Kev Small and others who told me some hilarious tales from back in the day. Knowing how respected he was, even by people he used to nick has been mind blowing. Legend that is David Evans who has biggest collection of WFC stuff on the planet interviewed him 3 years ago https://www.walsallfctrust.com/post/years-gone-by-cyril-adams

David is working on an obituary with comments from a few who remember him. Will post it when it’s done. Already had a lovely message from Paul Marston our best reporter ever (although my respect for Joe Edwards is increasing by the week). UTS and will raise a glass at Rochdale.

Choice for a foto for the funeral card was easy. I said straight away and Albion supporting brother and football hating sister agreed straight away. Iconic foto. That’s who he was. Told me the story many times. He rushed up to the Railway End when wall collapsed. He was faced with hundreds of Scousers (Look at the mullets!) but was convinced he had a dozen PCs behind him, he looked round and realised he was on his own and said … He said TBF the scousers were good and didn’t try to get on pitch
