Brian George Jennings passed away suddenly of a heart attack on 12 October 2007 at the age of 43. He, his two sons Bobby and Billy and his partner Mandy were season ticket holders in the Centenary Stand. Brian was a lifelong fan and his family and friends will miss him greatly but will celebrate his life and continue to follow the Irons.  All will be forever blowing bubbles as a tribute to Brian - he will be sorely missed.
