Uncle Colin takes a back seat!


Recommended Posts

Definitely the end of an era.  Colin is almost part of the furniture at Meadow Lane, it was his voice I heard on the radio commentating on Notts when I first started supporting the club 47 years ago.  It's good to hear that  he will still have a strong involvement (he hopes to attend 30-35 games per season) but at his age I think he deserves to miss those Tuesday night trips to Hartlepool in the middle of winter!  I hope the club give him the opportunity to step on the pitch this Saturday at his final home commentary either pre-match or at half time so we can show our appreciation.

It's hard to imagine who would take over from him, though I hope the jokes on Twitter don't remotely come into play. Dean Yeates and Mark Stallard would make a good duo, though I'm sure the BBC will assign someone who's already pre-existing rather than a new face.

Although the time has certainly come for Colin to take it easy at his advanced age, it's still a very sad day. He's part of the fabric of our club. He was also an outstanding commentator in his day who gave you a clear picture of the match, didn't show any bias and didn't degenerate into screaming fits, unlike some others!

Who stepped in for him last season when he was ill, was it Andrew Jackson? If so, he'd be a worthy successor. Mark Stallard can carry on as a pundit, he's doing an excellent job.
