Literally just had a phone call informing me of this terrible news. Brian was K’s through and through and followed the team longer then most of us have been alive. I’ve known Fossil most of my life. Not only as a fellow K’s fan but also as a neighbour. He was a true gentleman, one of the nicest blokes you could ever hope to meet.

I’ll always remember the time we played Oxford United away in a PSF around 2000. After being told by my parents I was not allowed to go to the game due to there not being a supporters coach, I did what any 14 year old would do. I made up a cock and bull story about where I was going, bought a one day travel card to get me through the London barriers and bunked the train there. When I got to the ground I had to ask Brian not to tell my parents he’d seen me at the game. He’d had a few by this time and he just looked at me with a cheeky smile on his face and said ‘The way things are going Iain I doubt i’ll even remember you were here’ as he lifted his pint to his lips. Being the absolute legend that he was, Fossil never grassed me up.

Rest in peace Foss.
