Yes , Willie has been poorly for some time . I don’t think he got over the death , some years ago, of his wife Wyn , another Horsenden Hill stalwart with the post match nutrition.
I’ll think Willie’s first comment to me when I moved to London in mid 70s was ‘What position do you play ” to which I answered Number 8. His response was ”OK you can play centre in Ray Cusden’s team” .
Hearing this news and of Bob the Dog is really sad. Perhaps an old gits reunion is called for ?
