R.I.P. Tom Morris

I was deeply saddened to hear today of the death of one time club photographer, Tom Morris.  He died suddenly at the age of 76. Tom started covering Charlton in 1969.

Tom was a fellow pupil at St. Margaret's Church of England Primary School, although a couple of years ahead of me.   He lived very close to me in Ennis Road.

Rick Everitt summed it up well: 'news today of Tom's death is a terrible end to a rotten year. He was both a good friend and a great photographer. Tom leaves us a rich legacy of CAFC images covering decades.'

That will be a very fitting and continuing memorial.

Rick's obituary is here:

Garry Nelson tweeted from a former player's perspective: 'So talented and so unassuming.  Always took our endless teasing with patience and good humour.'
