    Time Added

    It is, but for clarity, this is a non league team and not the team currently near the bottom of the Premiership.

    I did say Belso had 100 per cent chance of dying, 20 per cent chance of obit and ive been proved to be pretty much right so far.

    Bob Varsha, long-time commentator, quite ill with cancer - https://racer.com/2020/01/06/veteran-race-commentator-varsha-battling-cancer/ Despite being US based, he's been involved in so much for so long, he should get UK Obits.

    Never played in the football league but Manchester United count their oldest living player as 98 year old Jack White - Apparently played a couple of games for them during the War.

    The Dead of 2019

    And even more astonishing is that Alan Rollinson, as nice a bloke he was, DID get a mention. He was a non-qualifier, yet the man who designed numerous successful racing cars AND was Oxford United's chairman didn't get a mention in either. None of the other motor racing drivers who died in 2019 would've got anything from the BBC but Herd was the big miss there.
