    Surely one of the best scouts in world football. Tragic loss. RIP

    Sad to hear this finally confirmed.

    Is this what the players were lining up for before the game on saturday, before changing their minds? Maybe because it had happened so recently that they didn't want to risk close friends finding out that way...?
    Rip to him.

    Since he only died yesterday this seems unlikely.

    I misread the article, fair enough.

    RIP. Sad news, had hoped this was pulled on Saturday because it wasn't true, but sadly it seems it was.

    The news actually came out on Saturday, there was a post on here - which was oddly pulled after about 10 mins. Maybe the family didn't want it made public then, which is understandable.

    A tweet by Ross Wilson last night suggests Bill died on Monday. He was probably in hospital for a few days after the heart attack.

    Very sad news.

    He seems very well respected.

    I remembered his name from his playing days as at one point in the 1970's under Lawrie we were linked with him, not sure if that was whilst he was at West Ham or with Carlisle.

    A tweet on Friday / Saturday by @rdslee (who appears to be a Middlesbrough scout) indicates he died then, not Monday. Apologies can't link as on my phone. Anyhow, RIP.

    Apologies to the Green family if I provoked an unseemly competition but it seems too many people want to be the first to get stuff on social media. I took my information from the official Saints FC website which gives his date of death as 21/08/2017.

    Tough act to follow, big boots to fill. We'll be the poorer for his passing.

    To be fair I read a retweet by MLT on Saturday before the game.
    Sad news, great servant to the Club. Looks like he was instrumental in bringing Yoshida to the Club, and numerous others of course.
