Granville Morris ( Deceased)

Post  Boz1964 on Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:44 am

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my Uncle Granville Morris this Morning, after a short illness.

He was not in pain or discomfort.

He last visited Penydarren Park on Boxing Day, when we beat Cinderford and therefore leaves us with winning memories (as do I of him).

He will be known to many of our supporters, as he has been following the Martyrs since he was 14 which was a period of 69 years.

He has been a regular at most home games and one of our oldest away fans too.

Many of you will know him by sight and reputation.

My 'Football Dad' will be sorely missed by all his family and friends.

Phil 'Boz' Evans

So sorry to hear of Gggranville's passing. He was a true gentleman and will be missed. I remember when we played Plymouth Parkway away in the FA Cup last season he turned up being on holiday in Torquay, I think, and he moaned about the taxi fare from the station to the ground. However he thoroughly enjoyed his day. A lovely man and and well thought of by many Merthyr fans. Hopefully there will be a good turnout when he is laid to rest. RIP Granville and sincere condolences to Phil (Boz) and all the family.
