Bishop Auckland FC player Derek Lewin

“I will be remembering the people who died and I’ll remember them far more than the games I played.

“It was devastating - something you couldn’t believe or take in. It was ridiculous for them to be wiped out.”

“They were very good friends of mine,”

“One person who was a really great friend was Geoff Bent, and I used to train regularly with Roger Byrne.

“They accepted me as if I was one of them. Anything I could do to help, I would have done.”
