Errol was in year 8 in my first year of teaching in 1977 at SSHS. I am also an ex-SSHS student myself. He always had a ready smile and I wondered if it was the same Errol when I read his name in the West. RIP Errol.

I played football with Errol during years 8,9,10 down at Scarborough football club which met at Abbott Park. He was a great footballer and an absolute gentleman. He had a mean right hook from his left boot when kicking and with great accuracy but opposition teams spotted this and would run to block him turning right.
At school he was a regular student but approachable by one and all even though he was up with the other elite sports stars of the school.

I was saddened to read of his loss as it is a loss for all.
