Lloyd Fell RIP

Peter Parr reports that Lloyd Fell passed way yesterday afternoon. He was 91 years old and had been one of the most active Australian players on the tournament scene from the mid-1940's up until the last couple of years. One of his notable achievements was playing in every Doeberl Cup from its inception in 1963 until 2008. Details of his funeral will be in tomorrows (Friday) Sydney Morning Herald.

Sad news. I really enjoyed listening to his take on his own formidable abilities. A true character, he has been missed in recent times and that is now permanent. Sad news.

91 years old was a good run. We'll miss you Llyod.

He didn't play in The Australian Open in Dee Why, but as a visitor during the tournament he recognized me and he started to talk about your game - a draw - in Penrith 2003.

I sensed he was a legend.

Rest in peace.

He was tough, quite happy to trade away into an endgame where he had nothing and then crush you. He got me twice that way.
