    I've got to own up - I've never got round to reading 'Kestral for a Knave' though it is sitting on my bookshelf awaiting a read. However, I did read the 'Price of Coal' a few years ago and it knocked my socks off.

    A sad, sad day :(

    RIP, read it first at school (Holgate), read a few of his others over the years. Should have had more credit, but the press don't have a lot of time for northerners that tell things how they are.

    His first book was 'The Blinder' and had football as its theme. He was a useful footballer as a lad and played for the England Schoolboy team.

    He wrote a piece that got tacked on to the end of 'Kestrel For A Knave' when it got reprinted in which he expressed regret that he'd incorporated a lot of dialect in to the dialogue and said if he'd rewritten the work he would have changed the dialogue so that it could be more readily understood outside of Yorkshire. I, for one, am pleased he didn't. A great novel and a wonderful film.

    Saw Dai Bradley in Barnsley last week funnily enough - he's got a lot to thank Barry Hines for - he created one of British cinemas most iconic characters - RIP

    A sad day.

    I'm not sure the impact of A kestrel for a knave can be overstated. Both in literary terms and cultural impact.

    A top man and a very sad loss

    I knew him very personally and I am deeply upset at his passing. A great bloke.

    Who? Hines or Glover? I assume you mean Glover. Hines worked at Longcar. I'm pretty sure Glover, who had a longer teaching career, did too at the same time as Hines (late 60s).

    That's a really good obituary, written by Mark Hodkinson who was the author of our account in the Premier League - "Life at the Top".

    Interesting to hear that Disney wanted to film Kes but would only do it if the bird survived. Barry refused. Imagine what kind of a film Disney would have made of it? Probably a Macauley Culkin kind of character playing Billy Casper. Unthinkable!!

    Aye both taught at Longcar. Brian Glover once sent his class out on a cross country run so they could get inspired like the author of 'Loneliness Of The long Distance Runner' had been. He then set them the task of putting in to words what their experience felt like. One lad's contribution was succinct and to the point 'I was f***ed!!' Two sons of Barnsley taken from us far too soon.
