For the loss of a man


Shocking news that Gary Speed was found hanged at his home, resulting in a sad, subdued football world. It is difficult to comprehend how the path of life can lead someone to be so far away that they cannot find a way back. You are in our thoughts Gary Speed, may you now rest in peace.
