Appeal for David Coleman Memorabilia

Last updated : 29 March 2002 By Andy Burton
The reason behind the request is purely personal, I simply do not have enough memorabilia from the 9 years he spent with the Cherries.

I contacted the club and they did not have anything. The Bournemouth Echo had a couple of photographs and the rest is what I collected.

You always think at the there will always be plenty of time to collate information but when they die unexpectedly there is never enough to satisfy your memories.

I also run a football club in his memory called Dave Coleman AFC which next season will be playing in the Hampshire League.

I would like tell you that David was buried in his full Bournemouth AFC kit, including his boots.

Harry Redknapp along with a few other players including the current manager Sean O'Driscoll attended the Funeral. If there is any further info you require please do not hesitate to contact me.
