Agreed. Always approachable, warm and friendly. The players giving testimonies to a true pillar of the club- fully deserved.

Ground was crumbling, and there genuinely was little money about then. However, there was plenty of honest endeavour and the match day experience was magnificent, and Dave perhaps encapsulated that with his commentary; clearly not polished but we loved him for it.

Wonderful times and a wonderful bloke.

He’s looking down saying

”Oh no, no! KA he’s acting like, well, like a cunt, so to speak”

I got all the right words but not necessarily in the right order!

Worth another look. I’m right in the middle, upper tier behind the goals.

As police dogs mauled Bolton fans on the pitch dressed as nuns, gorillas and worse after the Wrexham game Dave uttered those immortal words: "..the police are behaving like animals, like pigs so to speak.."

God bless you DH.

Dave used to walk round BAE Lostock on a Friday pm selling BWFC scratch cards, he got dogs abuse from non whites fans ‘fuck off Dave’ but he loved it “thank you very much sir and god bless you” was his reply.  A true BWFC  legend and a lovely bloke, sadly missed the glory years

Best ever.

Definitely one of them. The only time at work I've had a disciplinary hearing. Drove my company Astra there and back on 3 cylinders at 30mph due to a knackered HT lead and blew summat in the engine that cost a fortune to repair

That tribute is brilliant.........just brilliant.

That's our Club right there......all in it together......brought a tear to my eye.

I can only hope that after all this mess is sorted we can get back to that again.

RIP Dave Higson you were an absolute star. Hope you're having a Ding Dong Do wherever you are!
