David Brooks
« on: November 21, 2016, 12:09:28 AM »
Today I have been contacted by John Brooks, late sixties player that his brother David has died.
He played over 500 games in the 60''s as a magnificent midfield dynamo with Mick Wright together a sight to behold.
David emigrated to Australia in early 80''s and had a great career and life.
Latterly he had onset of illness and has died of a stroke!
We would like the recognition of David's life at King's Lynn to be held at a future game!!
Never touched alcohol; healthy food eater and great player and person.

Very sad news, I also remember watching David play, he mainly used to wear the number 4 shirt if I recall correctly. Great loyal and local player.

RIP David.
Followed KLFC until 2009.
