Lord Stratford

Tony Banks, RIP.

I always admired him for being genuinely enthusiastic about sports and caring particularly for grass-roots sport, not just the big teams (even as a Chelsea supporter). You can’t help but think that he would have loved this weekend’s FA Cup matches (which were one in the eye for the Independent’s comment that there are no shocks any more) and must have really been looking forward to the Olympics in 2012. A sad loss for sport.

  1. Grass roots sport. Hmm. Like amateur horse racing perhaps, can’t get much more grass roots. Besides all he seemed to care about was football. His successor, Kate Hoey, was noticably far more interested in other sports as well.
