I've just received the following message. Rest in peace Brian.

A message composed by Linda and Kevin Pedley, the daughter and brother of Brian Pedley:

We write to inform you that Brian Pedley died peacefully on the evening of Sunday, 27th September at his home in Saltash.

His final wish was to return home from hospital to spend his final few days with his beloved family. Although unable to speak he was fully aware of what was going on around him and was able to communicate with smiles and nods of the head.

On the behalf of his family we would like to express our utmost gratitude to PASOTI members and fellow Argyle fans for their kind-hearted messages of comfort and support. We made sure that their messages were read out to Brian, we can tell you that he was deeply touched by the affection and respect shown by his fellow Pilgrims.

Aged 64 years Brian was a respected freelance journalist having previously worked for Westward and TSW television stations for nearly twenty years. He was proud to be born and bred in Efford, Plymouth the fourth of five sons. As each boy became old enough they were initiated in the 'delights' of being taken to Home Park to watch Argyle. Brian possessed indelible memories of the promotion season of 1958/9, which older Argyle supporters will know was followed by a sustained period in the old second division (now The Championship). In common with many of his family and compatriots he continued to support Argyle through thick and thin, making many wonderful and dear friends over the years.

His passion for football and his love for Argyle enriched his life, with wonderful memories to cherish: the 40,000 sell-out FA cup tie against a brilliant Spurs team in the early 1960s, the sea of green bathed in sunlight at the Villa Park semi final, our victorious play off final at Wembley, the 2-0 victory over QPR to clinch the league championship.... there are too many to list.

On the penultimate day of his life, in the company of his family, Brian listened to 'Sparksy' commentating on the Stanley game from his bed with the radio at full volume. As we all know this was another disappointing result, upon hearing the boos emanating from the radio at the end of the match Brian's eyes partially opened and a wry smile appeared on his face, he understood the fans frustrations, it was probably the only time we laughed out loud following an Argyle defeat! Despite the vagaries of following 'The Greens', in particular the emotional roller coaster of recent years, he remained staunch in his support. He relished each match day, especially being in the company of real football supporters who exemplified the true spirit of 'Semper Fidelis'.

Despite the sadness of Brian's passing he would want his fellow Pilgrims to take heart, why is this? .............Because his young grandson Tom, who Brian has taken to home games since 'knee high' is now a fully fledged and committed Argyle fan! Tom will be at Home Park on Saturday with members of his family for the match against Dagenham & Redbridge. Ensuring continued family support will be one of Brian's enduring legacies.

Once again, thank you and let's hope for a memorable victory on Saturday against Dagenham & Redbridge.
COME ON YOU GREENS!!


RIP Brian, what a wonderful message from your family, God bless them and you, say hello to my Dad will you.

This is why we MUST keep 'Semper Fidelis' and we must do our utmost to keep the facade, when the new grandstand is built.
We must keep a connection to the past and honour the memory of our lost Green Army.

Very, very sad news. Even though it was expected, it doesn't make it any easier to bear.

There have been many "Pilgrims" that have been laid to rest recently. The sad news of Brian's departure has genuinely brought tears to my eyes.

May God bless you and your brave family Brian.

Rest in Peace, Pilgrim.

Linda, Kevin and Tom (plus one other member of the family) will be guests of PAFC and FES at the game on Saturday.

Brian has the best seat, but there's will be quite good as well.

Linda and her family had a good day on Saturday, and it was good to meet them and look after them for the match.

Brian has definitely passed on the baton to Tom, who his Dad reckons, one day, may well play in the green of PAFC so keep your eye out for the name.

As I say, it was a delight to meet them all, and Kevin (Brian's brother) and I shared a few stories from the old days.
