A SAINTS fan who has died at the age of 43 will be laid to rest at the club’s ground.

Malcolm Tuck’s ashes will be buried at the St Mary’s Stadium complex.

Malcolm, who was a payroll clerk with the NHS in Southampton, died suddenly on June 30, two days after feeling unwell.

The exact cause of his death has not yet been established but he suffered from asthma and Crohn’s disease.

Malcolm lived with wife Christine at North Baddesley.

His mother Dot Tuck said: “He’d travel the length and breadth of the country with his mates to watch Saints’ away matches.”

The funeral service will be held at Southampton Crematorium on Monday.

His family is hoping his ashes can be placed in the ground at St Mary’s Stadium on July 23 which would have been his 44th birthday and his 12th wedding anniversary.

I remember talking to someone who said her husband (a devoted Saints fan) died in November 1975 and feeling sad he missed out on all the glory. Sad for this chap too as I feel we're heading for a big season. COYR!

R.I.P Malcolm


Rumour mill




Things are starting to get interesting in the lower divisions. Here are the pick of the rumours ...

•There's been more scouts hanging around Priestfield than you'd see at a Baden-Powell appreciation day, but it now seems that Southampton are the most likely to sign Gillingham striker Simeon Jackson for £750,000, after beating off the likes of Millwall, Norwich and Plymouth.
