Not the riches in football back then that their is today. Dickie Guy played for wimbledon when they got into the football league but stayed as a semi professional so he could continue to run his successful  building business in bromley kent

A seemingly legit twitter account of a Leeds United fan says he has died.No corroborating tweets as yet. Will keep an eye out. Could be a troll but the account looks like it is real and that of a Leeds fan from looking through it.

If he’s dead that’ll really fuck up a lot of cup teams.

Just made a brief throwaway account, and it looks to be true. 
Sigh, all but one team who picked him jokered him...

On a happier note, I don’t get as massively fucked this cup round. :D

I'll wait until it's official before I add the 'dead' tag.

Btw, for those wondering about the Lorimer situation apparently since then it looks as if he’s still alive and the mods even locked the Lorimer thread until more info is known. So may be a sigh of relief for all the cup pickers of him.

Or it could be the Jim McLean situation all over again?

Tbh, why would you put out a statement at 8pm on a Sunday? They've maybe opted to wait for the "morning call".

This seems more definitive that he’s alive though:

Aye, that'll be EVERYONE in the next round of the cup, then!

Not here, @Paul Bearer. Joey means the Leeds forum the news came from. It's Lorimer thread got locked and 6 pages deleted after the Lorimer family themselves complained about it. He was alive but very ill as of midnight.

Peter Lorimer's death is the sixth from Leeds' 1970 FA Cup final team (to Chelsea's four); three players from that match died last year.
