Brown, Roger I used to go boarding school in Ascot (Berkshire) and I remember Roger coming to open a football tournament at the school. We got on well. He liked the team I support (Millwall). I believe that he actually went to my school would love to know if that was true.

Brown, Roger I married Roger in 2007. We were both 55 and we reconnected by chance on Friends Reunited. We had known each other from the age of 11. He moved back to Tamworth from Norwich to be with me. We had a few fantastic years and he took me to Fulham to watch a match and he gave a talk. Fulham did a fundraising evening for him when they knew he had bowel cancer and treated us wonderfully. Roger had fans waiting to see him outside the ground even after all those years and he was so proud and happy that he was remembered. He suffered a lot towards the end but was so stoical and died 17.8.2011. Malcolm Macdonald and most of his old team mates travelled to Tamworth for his funeral which was so thoughtful of them.
