Very sad indeed. A great character who was banned from playing Quiz machines in many Lancashire pubs due to his high winnings from them.. R.I.P . Dave ..

I had no idea he’d stepped down as I often miss them and I know they rotate anyway. What a shame, seemed a lovely fella

My best decade by far in my fifties...bar the odd blip. He had so much in front of him. Great shame.

He had a brilliant sport knowledge. Knew pretty much every sports question he was asked.
