Reading that article ...he was described as ." a ducker and diver"....and Dave Davies who looked after him during the mid-!990s said "Gary was always looking for a pound note saying 'This time next year I'm going to be a millionaire'

Sounds like he was a real life Del Boy .... Very Happy

48 is no age .....hope he rests in peace.

I don't think they had Pound Notes at that time except possibly in Scotland but it's always sad when a champion in any sport meets a premature end
