Tony Kempster

I may have wobbled on about the crisis @ Mossley for a week or so, but I'm sure many of you out there are aware of Mr Kempster and the amazing work he's done for many years on non-league football via his website ..

However many may well have been unaware of his health problems ...

Sadly Tony died at the weekend, leaving a great void in the non-league game ... God knows how many people/prog editors/press etc logged into his site to keep up to date with the various "goings on" in non-league football ... he'd known for a long time that his "time was short" and he was going to "freeze the site" at the end of the season anyway. Well he made it to the end ... but now it's no more.

There have been many many volunteers to help to keep his site/his "non-league vision" going - it will be a very hard act to follow.

RIP Tony - he will be sadly missed. My thoughts and wishes to Anne, Stuart, Martin & Ian.
