Lovely guy David- I have known him since Comprehensive School Days ( 40+ years ago).

He was a quiet unassuming individual who loved our Club, his cycling and fitness in general.

Sad news to hear of his passing.

Aye, tragic. Still in shock. Real stalwart of the club. Some lovely tributes on Facebook. Condolences and prayers to him and his family.

Trust the club is planning a similar suitable tribute.

Very Sad news. Twiggy is going to be terribly missed travelling home & away for decades. His football knowledge was second to none. As mentioned previously we have received tremendous tributes on social media on Forza Martyrs and twitter. Thoughts with Dai's family and condolences. I hope the club can possibly name a friendly each season and call it the David Jones memorial trophy or something similar. He really was a nice guy and a dedicated Martyr. RIP

For supporters that are not on Facebook, David's brother Nigel has posted a message that there will be a minutes silence before the Newport game, Nigel will be attending the game with his wife and daughter.

Glad to hear it.
