Though Lincoln Grimsby, Macclesfield, Bury, Peterborough and football as a whole share a huge loss Vital Lincoln would like to send our condolences on behalf of our memebers to Keith`s wife Helen and his family, who we must remember need to grieve.
That is not to say we cannot play our part, for today is the day we bury a truly great Imp.
There has been respectful silence as the Vital front Page adhered to a two day period of reflection and mourning over the weekend. On Saturday Macclesfield released 53 white doves in the centre circle celebrating his life prior to the 2-0 relegation staving win he would have wanted over former club Bury. Keith was a football man from the cradle to the grave. Acting manager, friend and broken hearted surviving half of a truly inspiring managerial double act, Gary Simpson is suitably the leading Pall bearer today.
