Two of Perranporth's Club Officials went to see Brian in Treliske yesterday, having seen the many messages of support on here they sent them on to Brian so he could be aware of the support he is getting. Apparently Brian told them that he is likely to be moving to Newquay Hospital so he can be closer to home.

Although i do not post on here very often i had to post on this one.Brian and Sandra are two of the nicest people i have ever met and are Mr and Mrs Newquay AFC. Despite the rivalry when i was playing between Falmouth and Newquay i always thought i wish they were at my club. The respect Newquay AFC have earned over the years is largely down to them. I know i speak for everybody at Falmouth who knows them so please let us know how he is getting on and give our love to Sandra. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Also would like to pass on the best wishes of St Dennis afc who had the pleasure of Brian playing for them in the 60's and 70's.

Brian is often spoke off when some of my family talk about the old times.

Hope you get well soon.

May I add my best wishes to Brian.

He was a wonderful source of support when, at times, I felt very isolated taking on Mr Ryder and, it seemed, the whole of the CCFA, a few years back.

A speedy recovery please.

Brian is now in Newquay Hospital. He is coping relatively well and continues to think positively. He would like to thank everyone for the immense kindness shown to him, especially from the football fraternity in both Devon and Cornwall. :c:

Condolences to his family on behalf of everyone at St Agnes AFC.

A true gentleman and a sad loss to Cornish Football.

We would appreciate knowing the arrangements as soon as anyone else does. Thank you.

This is indeed a very sad day for everyone at Newquay Football Club. On behalf of the Committee and the members of the Club we would like to express our condolences to Sandra, Tamsin and Andy and all Brian's family.

Brian was Mr Newquay Football Club and I think I am correct in saying he held just about every post in the Club over the many years he was associated with the Peppermints. Starting as a player, then Manager, Coach, Secretary and latterly as a hands on President. He was as most people know a well respected FA Councillor and he will be sorely missed by everyone he met.

On a personal note he was a tremendous help when I became Football Secretary and latterly Chairman of the Club he loved. I shall miss discussing football matters over a pint in the Clubhouse and he was very knowledgeable about everything football. Brian is irreplaceable and Mount Wise will be a sadder place without him.

RIP Brian.

Graham Drew, Chairman of Newquay Football Club

What a sad day for Cornish Football. My thoughts go out to his family, especially Sandra. You will be sadly missed at Mount Wise. The work you have done is invaluable and immense, thank you.

A legend of Newquay Football Club.

I can only echo the sentiments already expressed by Graham and Grant that Newquay Football club will be devestated by this sad news. Even since Brian's illness there are so many things that I now realise Brian did for the club that I had not recognised previously. It will be extremely strange not having Brian around on match days as evrything functioned perfectly when he was there. My condolences go to Sandra, Tamsin and all the family.

Very Very sad loss to Cornish football, Brian was the most recognisable person you see at Mount Wise.

Where ever we bumped into each other it was always a good humour occasion.

The last time I saw Brian was at Treyew Road (end of season) parked next to each other and after comparing our car hand controls he then pipped me in a race to the grandstand.

I trust most clubs will pay respect on Saturday

sincere condolences to his closest family and friends.

A very sad day for cornish football. Brian Biggin was Newquay football club for so many years & i will personally miss that smile & handshake at the gate to mount wise. Another legend for Sir Bobby Robson to talk to.

Rest in peace Brian.

A very sad day for Newquay Football Club and Cornish Football.

Brian was well known as Mr Newquay Football Club not just in Newquay but across the County and justifiably so as well.

He will be sadly missed.

Condolences to Sandra and family

RIP Brian

A very sad day , for everyone at Newquay Football Club,as we a new team at Newquay,brian would had loved to watch all the new young players playing for his club.

Brian was a true football man,the club meant everything to him,and when i run my soccer schools at the club , he would be there everyday watching and helping me out,

A big loss,for cornwall,and for Newquay.

If Newquay get a new stand, or a new ground it should be named the THE BRIAN BIGGINS STAND OR STAUDIM.

A Newquay legend

My condolences go to Sandra, Tamsin and all the family.

GOD BLESS EVERYONE AT NEWQUAY 3RD'S
