Such sad news. Brian was a true RL man. A man who always had time for anyone and everyone. He will leave huge void at the club but will always be remembered. RIP Brian. Hope the boys can do you proud today.

Sad sad news. I’ve known Brian for many many years and he has been a great servant to Town. He will be a big miss. RIP Brian

I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

A massive personality and great Clubman who will be sorely missed.

I have known Brian for over 30 years having worked with him at British Steel and him also refereeing local Football.

Great tribute on the Twitter account from Jamie Doran that just shows what he meant to the players.

R.I.P Brian

Only met Brian a couple of times but he was such a friendly and warm character. I think the Twitter thread with lots of former players, coaches and others in rugby league passing their condolences on give an indication of the regard he was held in by others. He will no doubt leave a huge hole in Workington Town,  but more importantly with his loved ones and they all have my sincere sympathies. Hopefully they can take some comfort of how many people have expressed their sorrow and gave a memory of how Brian infected them with his warmth. Rest in Peace to a true Townie.

The race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong, but thats the way to bet!
