We arranged for the next meeting to be held at The Railway Whaley Bridge as a tribute to Godfrey Plant on the 6th December, the week-end we play City at the Council House.

The Railway was the venue we used to use for the early meetings until we out grew the venue, the back room is not very large so it ill be cosy to say the least

Look forward to seeing you all there, best regards Keith


It is with regret that I have to break the news of Godfrey’s passing.

Godfrey was a great bloke, always helping where he could with the branch, he did all the expediting of people who took the buses to the home games from Whaley Bridge.

Godfrey travelled to a lot of Euro away games with us and was recognised by a lot of the euro away travellers, it has not been possible for me to reach all these people to let them know, but I am sure word will get round on the grapevine

If it wasn’t for his love of Manchester United, then Godfrey would probably not have been to the numerous places he has been to, his famous statement being ‘ If it wasn’t for Manchester United, I would never have to leave Whaley Bridge’

Godfrey leaves behind his wife Joyce and their two children, Johnathan and Nicola, our deepest condolences to you all
