Re: Revived Red

A sad loss to both the club he loved & our forum.
His posts were always well reasoned & balanced.
My sincere condolences to Bernard's family.

Re: Revived Red

Very sorry to hear of Bernard's untimely passing, please accept my condolences. I remember first making Bernard's acquaintance many years ago on a train platform in East London as he was wearing a 1962 Stanley shirt, and our paths crossed many times subsequently, usually at away games. I enjoyed chatting with him and found his views interesting and always educative.

Re: Revived Red

Like everyone else I was saddened to hear of Bernard's passing.
I was, fortunately, so lucky not to only have met him on many occasions at The Crown and at away games, but also to share many PM'S with a man I came to like and admire. On these occasions we always managed to put the world to right but also to quietly whisper the ways in which The Reds could be so much better if they really tried ! ( but don't tell anyone please ).

So, once again a friend has gone and I must rely on my fading memory to recall all that was good about them. My kindest thoughts are with Kayleigh and all of Bernard's family at this sad time in their lives.

My last sincere 'Thank you ' to Bernard, is for always laughing, sometimes with a grimace, at the sad puns and gags which I always managed to lay on him !...such tolerance !.

Accrington Stanley and many of his friends have lost a true fan and a
true Gentleman !.

Re: Revived Red

just wonder if i have ever spoke to him or not. over the years you speak to loads of people at games without ever knowing their names. its always a sad day for friends and families when this happens and no words really can console them.

My dear friend - Bernard McCall

Just to keep everybody up to date, I have sent some P.M.'s and have spoken with Bernards family about giving an update

This is from the family:-

A celebration of Bernard’s life will be held on 13 September, 11.30 at Weston super Mare Crematorium. All welcome – please wear colour.Donations for RNLI (Portishead) to be sent to Peter J Connell, 2 Cabstand, Portishead BS20 7HW

There will be a wake afterwards at the local cricket club where all are welcome.


Most of us will not be able to make it in person, but we can be there in our thoughts
