    Roger was a great runner, a real hardman and a bit of a character to boot. Where is he nowadays anyone know?

    I'm fairly sure I saw his name at a race last year or possibly the year before, it was the Bamford Carnival (or sheepdog trials) I think.

    Roger B was out on the (ES) course today, cheering runners, if you want to contact him I have his details.....
    A D'BG was something I always fancied a crack at; but, I'm far too old now and probably never really ever had the talent in the first place!

    Too true Daz, all tough & talented and I've been lucky enough to spend nights & days out BG'ing & Double ME'ing with Roger & Boyd (who is sadly no longer with us)... both very modest, kind & generous characters... although I'm not knowingly aquainted with Eric D, but the name is familiar..
