THE upcoming Morecambe v Derby County pre-season friendly will mean a lot to one of the town’s most popular plumbers.

Malcolm O’Neil will watch the match remembering one of his best friends, Dave Herron, who was a huge Derby supporter.

Dave, who used to work as a printer at The Visitor, died in 2001 after suffering from cancer.

Malcolm has sponsored the match ball for the game on Friday, July 22 in Dave’s memory and will lead a group of fundraisers who will collect for CancerCare during the evening.

“Dave would have loved to have seen the crowds down at the Globe Arena for the Derby game,” said Malcolm.
