Malcolm Poole, died 25th December 2020

Today we mourn the passing of another county stalwart. Malcolm was a great servant to the County, Super League player, Committee man, Super League Secretary, Statistician, Honorary President and Life Member.

Malc’s knowledge of our sport, especially the county side, was second to none. If you asked a question he would know the answer or go away and find it. Today, no amount of statistics can do justice to Malcolm’s dedication. He was simply a top bloke.

To his family we send our heartfelt condolences. You meant the world to him.

As the snow falls and the sun breaks through the clouds, I wipe away the mist from my eyes and recall our last conversation. It was an all too familiar one this year, regarding the passing of a dear member. At the end of the chat his last words to me were ‘Dave, who is going to write my obituary?’

Well pal there you go. I will miss you as will our extended darts family. Legend is a word too readily used these days but I can’t think of a better one to describe Malcolm.

God bless mate.

David Marcroft, Chairman, Lancashire GMC Darts Organisation.
