Jimmy Hill dies
« on: December 19, 2015, 19:21 »
One of the most influential figures in English football has today passed away at the age of 87.

Jimmy Hill today passed away at a care home in Sussex.

He had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008, and had been living in a care home for the last three years.

His agent, Jane Morgan, has said in a statement: "It is with great sadness that Bryony Hill and the children of Jimmy Hill have announced that Jimmy passed away peacefully today aged 87 after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Bryony was beside him."

He certainly was.  As Jasper Carrott once said: "He could get pickles out of a jar with his chin!"
