Rest in peace, Trevor Brown..

I picked up an email from a fellow fan about his friend, Trevor Brown. I never had the pleasure of his acquaintance, but checking the forums and doing a bit of research it seems Trevor was a very popular Forest fan – it’s very sad to hear he passed away on Wednesday at the far-too-young age of 49 years.

He’d been an A Block stalwart since before it became the vogue, and will be missed by a great many Forest fans – which you can see for yourselves by reading these tributes on the website for The Poets Corner – the pub in the Meadows where he was clearly as well known as at the City Ground.

It’s always sad to hear that one of the ranks of trickies has departed us – so for what they’re worth I pass my condolences on to Trevor’s family and many friends.  Rest in peace, Trev – let’s hope the Red can deliver us a season fitting to honour the memories so many people clearly cherish.

    For once in my life I’ve got something to say
    I wanna say it now for now is today
    A love has been given so why not enjoy
    So let’s all grab and let’s all enjoy

    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided
    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided

    Just take a look around you
    What do you see
    Kids with feelings like you and me
    Understand him, he’ll understand you
    For you are him, and he is you

    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided
    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided
    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided
    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided

    I don’t want to be rejected
    I don’t want to be denied
    Then its not my misfortune
    That I’ve opened up your eyes

    Freedom is given
    Speak how you feel
    I have no freedom
    How do you feel
    They can lie to my face
    But not to my heart
    If we all stand together
    It will just be the start

    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided
    If the kids are united then we’ll never be divided

  14. Known Trev since primary school at Whitemoor. Have a picture of us in the football team, he’s at the front with a cheeky grin and the mop of curly ginger hair. Saw him for the last time about 4 weeks ago in Bulwell and he was his usual self, full of the World Cup. We had our differences over the years but he was an Old School Gent and I was proud to know him for over 40 years. RIP Trev.

  15. Been told by a good friend of mine , of what a good lad Trev was and what a gentleman also. Thoughts to Trevs family from Shaun Davis, Davy and all the Belfast Reds from Northern Ireland

  16. worked with Trev for the last 5 years of his life . best 5 years i have had . god bless mate . good turn out 2 day . you would be proud .NFFC .

  17. I knew Trev from Aspley Boys Club. Years after, I met him again years later when he was in charge of a sunday morning footy team. He was just the same old Trev. A good lad without a doubt. RIP Trev.
