I was told about his death yesterday, then found that Hants had put this link on the obituary thread in the social forum. Thought I would copy it here as well in case it gets missed on that thread, as it has such a huge link to our club and not only in terms of the whole ethos of the trust.

It's difficult to ignore the impact of what Brian was doing at Northampton when the Exeter Trust was set up. The David Conn article gives a flavour of the man, but no words can paint a picture of the zeal which Brian had for the whole concept of fan owned clubs. He was certainly a positive presence in the early days of our Trust as many of those involved in the project should testify. Glad to see, too, that Dave Boyle gets a mention because he spent large chunks of early 2003 on trains from Paddington to Exeter. R.I.P. Brian.
