RIP Terry Grasty

Recommended Posts

RIP Terry Grasty - I have just heard the sad news that Terry Grasty a former stalwart of St Agnes AFC was found dead in his flat yesterday.

Terry was a long time member and active contributor to St Agnes AFC over a long period of time.

He was also involved at Trispen Football Club as Fixtutre Secretary and was Secretary of the Mining League.

I will post here should I hear any further details and in the meantime if anyone requires any further info please give me a call thank you.

Mandy Kimmins (Chair St Agnes AFC)

Hi Mandy,

Perhaps you would be so kind as to post on here if you hear when and where the funeral will be.

I was only thinking the other day that i had not seen Terry for some time.

When he was involved at St.Agnes AFC, i recall going into their changing room to get substitutes names from the manager and there was Terry wilth a table full of the biggest array of sweets and fruit laid out for the players that i have seen at a match.

RIP Terry..

Thank you Nigel - I will indeed post details here when I know the arrangements.

Terry was well know as our reserves physio by his nick name 'Terry the rub' and is remembered for the quantities of Opal Fruits!

Really sorry to hear the news about Terry Mandy. Real gentlemen, remember him bringing shower gel, towels, chewing gum and as mentioned by yourself and Nige about three bags of opal fruits every game!!! I used to get there ten minutes before Brendon wanted us just to nick a pocketful of orange and red ones before the youngsters got there!!! Remember us three listening to his cat stories while having a rub. Would do anything for anyone. R.I.P Terry. Mike, Rappo and Steve Tyack x

R.I.P. Terry. A lovely chap, who i had the pleasure of dealing with when he was the mining league secretary and when i played for Trispen many years ago. He could talk on the phone for hours sometimes and was extremly helpful and knowledgeable on all football matters.

Terry Grasty will be buried next Friday 31st May with a graveside funeral at 3pm at the Cemetary Goonvrea Road St Agnes.

It appears there may be no family present so it would be great to see members of his football family from over the years there.

There will be a buffet gathering at the Railway Inn St Agnes following the ceremony commencing at around 3.30pm.

Donations in lieu of flowers to St Agnes AFC.

For any more details please contact Mandy Kimmins 07974 370666
