Memories of two fine gentlemen
From VP – Mike Roughton.
“I’d like to say a few words about our lately departed friends; both of whom I was expecting to meet at this years Old Players Reunion.
People who knew Dennis for far longer than I, we played together in the late sixties/early seventies, have already acclaimed his personal
qualities, but I wanted to acquaint you with a strange ritual that the erudite Don initiated whenever we met, again, at the OPR.
He would say “Eine gutte scheis ist besse auf eine ….. ( a good crap is better than a bad f…) I mean no disrespect of course but, for me,
this epitomises the humour of the man, coupled with his huge intellect and integrity. Please share with older Members as you see fit.
RIP to valued old friends. Mike Roughton.”
