Les Day or Mr. Taxi Man

Postby Lady Magpie » Wed Feb 21, 2018 9:19 pm

I was sad to read in the Stroud News and Journal that Les Day had passed away after a short illness. If you didn't know Les personally you certainly would have heard him in the main stand as he was a very passionate Forest Green Rovers supporter for many years. I had known Les at FGR for years, old and new ground, and always called him Mr. Taxi Man.

My condolences to his family.

That is sad news, thanks for passing it on LM.

I had a few conversations with Les, he was certainly a committed and passionate FGR fan. He was also very ready to help out financially when the hat went round in the dark days before Dale Vince moved in.

RIP Les, my condolences to his family and friends.

Sad news. I remember him running the electrical shop in Nailsworth. And many pick up from stroud to FGR for meetings.

Condolences to Les' family.

Sad news indeed. Used to have a drink in the George at Newmarket many years ago with Les & his lovely wife Joan, also sat next to Les at FGR until a few seasons ago. Not seen him for a long time to talk to.

RIP Les ~ condolences to his family from myself & Steve

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
