Today I’ve heard the sad news of the death of life long Heaton Harrier member Mr Gerry Shirley. He was a great runner in his early days for the club. A great friend in my early days either training or racing, a man who was always laughing & joking on with his brother Malcolm! He was always great for advice and a regular at most races whether on the roads or cross country.
Can people let each other know of this sad news as Malcolm has asked to people to pass on the news of his brother. Malcolm will be at the club as usual on tues meeting Les Venmore and my Dad in the bar in the Blue Flames after 7 pm.
Gerry was a great man & a pure gent! RIP Gerry Shirley
