I remember a phone from Big Al while at work, one of the saddest periods ever supporting Trinity and seemed to get worse Toppo had gone in June, Adam in October then Leon followed followed the year later in March, jeez ten years has flown by :cry:

10 years, unbelievable.
Agree with Snowie on what a sad period it was with Watene, Toppo and Leon Walker all taken far too early.
It doesn't seem anything like 10 years ago but, time goes so quickly.

RIP

Add Terry Newton to that. There was something that didn’t sit right with his drug bust and whatever it was I think it led to him taking his life. Strange how two clubs have not been targeted in the same way since especially for that particular drug. Very sad end to an incredible career.

We once were talking to Terry Newton's aunt and uncle whilst on holiday in Turkey, before he came to Trinity. They both said that he wasn't a very nice person, but very troubled.

That may well be true but that’s not the real issue. Newton had probably been taking that drug for year. Yet he’d never been tested whilst at Wigan, Bradford or Leeds or GB but within weeks at Trinity he’d been snared. I know at the time the club management was extremely suspicious of the whole thing and so am I.
