Moggy R.I.P. 15:55 - Aug 5 with 10142 viewsSuddenLad

The legend has passed away.

A unique character, a man who had Dale in his veins and who did so much good in raising funds for good causes.

Rest in Peace, lad. Great memories.

Was hoping it wasn't true.

Had a great laugh with him last Saturday when he really got into the bucket collection and ended up with a bag of coke.

As kids he would often give us a leg up to climb into home games.

RIP Moggy - him and Killie up there together now.

Definitely a character! Well recall him doing a sponsored walk carrying his ladders.

Latest I heard was that he had donated £115 to Dale Trust for the Fund against Morton House and had raised £000s for a boxer from Rochdale so that he may always be remembered.

Sleep well Moggy, respect from all at OAFC

They say that the greatest come but once in a lifetime and then never the like are seen again.

He was in the Dale Bar on Saturday collecting for the legal fund and rallying the troops for a bumper opening day crowd. He was one of those Dale fans if he talked, you listened.

He must have raised thousands on the famous "ladder walks" all over the country for tiny charities all over the place over the course of his life:

It's never nice to lose one of your own.

Awful news. A Dale legend, a proper one. I'm not sure you're a Dale fan if he don't know of Moggy for one reason or another.

RIP Moggy.

Very sad to hear this. Was only talking to him on Saturday as he was doing the bucket collection with us.

His many charity walks are a thing of legend, I had the pleasure of being the support car for him and Bob Herdman when they did the 27 mile walk to Macclesfield for the Dale Trust many moons ago.

Top bloke and one that every Dale fan will know.

RIP Moggy

. A great Rochdale charity fundraiser while carrying his ladders all over the country, and absolute legend of a Dale fan. My earliest football memories were of him leading the Rochdale singing in the Sandy Lane. Always great to talk to and even more so to listen to. Condolences to his family and friends. 😢♥️👍

From my time starting watching Dale at the start of the nineties I’ve always thought Moggy had an aura about him and commanded respect. Even last week when he got the Dale Bar falling silent I was still scared to death of the bloke but you couldn’t help but love him.

We’ve lost a true legend here and we’ll never see his kind again. RIP.

Not much I can add thats not already been said, just spoke to a very close friend of his and as I said to her you'd struggle to meet another person anywhere who would leave such an impression on so many people.

RIP Moggy you'll be greatly missed by many

I couldn`t believe it when I saw the thread. Like others I was talking to him in the Dale Bar on Saturday and he was in very good form and very vociferous trying to raise funds for our fund raising. His ladder walks will never be forgotten. We brought him back from Plymouth following his walk to the Dale match down there, he must have forgotten to arrange his return journey !

Truly a great character and his loyalty to Dale unquestionable. Sad sad news.

Condolences to his friends and family .

RIP Moggy.

The amount of phone calls and messages I have had asking if it's true is astonishing, many from people who have never set foot in Spotland.....We shall never see his like again...
