Bernard "Barney" Day RIP
Tragically Barney passed away in 2018 - his death went unnoticed by so many of us. Barney was a former Middlesbrough reserve, local league footballer, Boro fan, massive collector, English baseball expert, local history fan, fmttm columnist as The Spider. A real one off. He recounted stories about Cloughie, Hardwick, manager Bob Dennison and so many players whose photos lurk in the pages of Boro A to Z. But he had been there and trained with many and watched them close at hand. That is what made his fmttm fanzine articles absolute goldust. And what was more remarkable was he was dyslexic, so every account was written by hand in capital letters. It must have been exceptionally difficult for him.
Jimmy Flynn just found about Barney's death. We felt it was so sad that his passing was not noted at the time and so between us we have written this obituary to a special Boro man.
