thumbWEST BYFLEET'S PETER SIMPSON HAS DIED
September 27, 2018
Sad news to share. Peter Simpson, formerly of West Byfleet club, has died. He was 81. Peter had a long association with snooker, playing in a number of different leagues across Surrey before settling in the Byfleet League in the mid-2000s. He soon assumed the captaincy of the West Byfleet 'C' side, playing alongside his son Gary, Aaron Castle and fellow Byfleet League veteran Chris Chamberlain. I, Phil Vowels, joined the team in 2010 after initially going to the club one evening just to watch. Peter couldn't have been more welcoming. "Make sure you've got your cue. We'll need you in a couple of weeks!" That started an association that lasted five years. Peter was a very organised, kind, generous man, who always insisted on buying everyone a drink - including club staff. He provided a fortnightly taxi service to away games for me and Aaron; and later Lee Doolan, Ian Geldard and Mark Chalkley, too. In fact, in more recent years, he was still happy to drive even if he didn't play. His white refereeing gloves were the talk of home matches, such was the likelihood of him wearing them to officiate. Visiting players were dazzled by such devotion to duty. If my memory is correct, there were even a couple of matches in which he refereed every frame. Much as Peter enjoyed Snooker, Billiards was his real love. He relished his regular battles against old friend and rival Peter Currier ("Zimmer") from Staines. Their encounters on the baize were like watching a chess match unfold and of course both played with total sportsmanship and mutual respect. Peter preferred the deftness of touch demanded by billiards and was fond of reminding me and Lee if we'd lashed at a shot, "You've hit the ball too 'ard!" It seems fitting that Peter's final match in the league just two years ago was indeed against Zimmer. Peter was a keen collector and supplier of cues, helping out a number of players at West Byfleet club. He even remarked how he'd once been given a cue by a professional player, when he was doing some work on their kitchen. "Lovely man", said Peter sincerely - of Alex Higgins. Our thoughts are with Peter's wife, Ann, to whom he was absolutely devoted, and the rest of his family. If you have any memories of playing with or against Peter, please feel free to share them on the Byfleet League Facebook page. KJ - Peter was always so supportive to me and the Byfleet League. He attended finals nights and always helped refereeing and was there to support his clubs players. He captained his team particularly well and played and conducted himself in a gentlemanly manner. Very gracious in victory and sporting in defeat. He epitomised everything that is good in our league and will be sorely missed. My condolences to his son Gary and his family.
