ED, a face to the name

Recommended Posts

Thought posters might like to put a face to the name, checked if it was okay to do so, it is.

Something most won’t know about ED is that he was at N’castle after leaving school, he was offered terms but his mother decided he was getting a real job in the bank.

He was a big lump of a lad even then, typical battering ram centre forward of that era and skill to go with it, who knows what could have been, hope you like the fotie from last year, keep rockin’ big chap ?

In a way it makes it even sadder putting a face to the name. Im glad he got back here for his last wind-ups. I’m sure such a big character will be sadly missed by his family and friends

I vaguely remember him sharing that story in the boozer (I was probably hammered) he was a class act and never a dull moment when he was out and about. 

I remember we were all in Crystal Palace and you were showing him your matches on Tinder. Then he started chatting up these middle aged birds across from us :lol:

Condolences to his family. One of the first people I remember on this site, loved a right good piss take :lol:  With all that Rangers meant to him, I'm glad he got to see a proper Rangers once more before he passed. Rest easy big man.

Cheers Backup enjoyed reading his windup and also some of his knowledge of The Famous was second to none. 

Before there was such a thing as agents big Tam used to do many of The Rangers players finances like pensions and investments, he counted many of them as good friends, whom he socialised with down through the years...he wasn’t averse to a bit name dropping about it either ?

Direct cremation arrangements finalised yesterday, no service or funeral, as per Tam’s wishes.

His ashes will be scattered at various places he requested, Ibrox hopefully too.

Tam left money to Erskine, McMillan nurses and Roxburgh House Hospice, I am sure he would be happy for anyone who wishes to remember him in some way, to make a small contribution to any of those worthy causes.

fillin up can’t write anymore..?

The reaction to Tam passing away has been quite overwhelming but also very heartwarming.Gers fans have surpassed themselves with their kind comments.I thought you might like to know a bit more about Tams photo.It was taken in The Old Toll Bar in PRW in September 2017,it was to be the last time that I would see Tam on a face to face basis.He phoned me to meet in the Grapes where we reminisced about our favourite subject...... childhood days  living in Plantation over a few beers and  we then headed on to the Viceroy He asked the young barmaid if he could pick up the £50 that he had left behind the bar after a Rangers game in 1978....the barmaid went along with it and said she would find it and post it out to him.....We then headed into the Old Toll Bar and that is where we had our last drinks together......    What you can't see in the photo  are the young Irish lass and her young Polish pal........Tam had some great banter with them and they really lapped it up.....he was always winding folk up ......even if he hadn't met them before.It really is a sore one to lose the big man....taken far too young.

After that wee wobble, those are the arrangements at this moment in time. If there are any changes Jacquie will let us know.

Jacquie is knocked out by the esteem that Tam is held in by so many here, a great comfort to her ?

I know the feeling @backup? reading all these threads is continually making me wobble.  He was always full of charm when it come to talking to us ladies.  A true gent and valued friend, despite his bam ups on here(which would generally make me chuckle):)

Tam has a very familiar look about him I have a feeling I have been in his company watching the gers abroad at some point in my life. I seem to remember him winding everyone up it definitely looks like the same guy anyway. Rest In peace tam to abscent friends.

Two years ago I think. We played Killie at home and won 3-0.
