It's never nice to hear that someone has died.

Naturally, your thoughts go out to the loved one's.

I hope it's not taken in bad taste, it's not intended - The shock, disappointment & sadness is greater knowing he was a BFC employee (and a highly rated one to boot) working to improve our club.

Condolences to Robert's family, friends and BFC.

My God, I got made redundant a few months ago, spoke to MB about it and he got Rob to call me about something that might have helped in the time it took to find new employment, I got straight back into work but had 10 mins on the phone with Rob who was very helpful before knowing I was back in, a nice guy who was doing a fantastic job for our club, an absolute tragedy.

Just over 3 pages of shock on here. Don't really know what to add. Thoughts are with his folks now. Football very much comes way down the pecking order at times like this. RIP.

Taken from this world far too early. My understanding was that he was a very important and highly regarded member of the club. Thoughts and prayers to family , friends and colleagues. RIP Rob.
