 Mike Norris posted this sad message on Whatsapp.

Very Sad News Gentlemen.
For the many people that knew him, Bill Wade sadly died suddenly this morning on arrival at an Airport in Spain. He was with his wife. They had both recently recovered from COVID. Cause was probably a Heart Attack which unbelievably was what happened to his great friend Howard Nixon a few years ago at Old Trafford where they attended matches together. RIP Bill.

Update from Bill Heavey

Funeral details:

Monday 4th Oct at 2:30pm
Radcliffe Crematorium
Cemetery Road - Access via Greenbank Road

Have only just seen this notice and am really shocked, I remember you coming to Collyhurst well you always reminded me for pre course training on Directors. You went a long way since those days.
RIP Bill, now you and Howie will be able to watch the Reds together again.
