Sobering when players of the same age as yourself pass away, especially when they appear to have been in good health. Cyrille had everything that a top centre forward needed-pace, power, good in the air, finishing ability and should have played more for England. One of the early pioneers in breaking down the race barriers and was also highly esteemed by fans of all the Midlands clubs that he played for, an achievement in itself.

RIP Cyrille

Cyrille Regis, the former West Brom and England forward, has died aged 59.
He scored 112 goals in 297 appearances for the Baggies before joining Coventry City for £250,000 in 1984.
He was a pioneer for black footballers in the game when he played alongside Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson at The Hawthorns.
His widow, Julia, described him on Monday as "a beautiful man and a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle."
Regis, who was appointed an MBE in 2008, returned to West Brom as a coach before becoming a football agent.

Some heartfelt tributes posted today for a man who spent his career opposing bigotry and racism. Respect.

Went to Kensal Rise Primary School, where I started my teaching career three years after he'd left. He was more into cricket/athletics via an Australian teacher at that time. RIP Cyrille. One of the good guys who displayed skill, dignity and leadership at a very difficult time for black people in the UK.
