Unhappy Andy Sizer

It's with great sadness that Andy Sizer has passed away due to the terrible disease that is cancer. The sport of FT has lost a really great fella. Andy loved his FT and travelled with me to Norway and Germany for the WFTF championships, we also went to Weston Park to the Euros together on a few occasions.

Tragically taken too soon he leaves behind a son, daughter and wife amongst many friends and his team in Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service where he was a leading firefighter.

Rest In Peace Andy, you will be sorely missed

He who never made a mistake never learned!
He who never missed never shot!

Only chatted a couple of times to Andy at the Euros and at Millride but obviously one of life's good blokes.
Condolences to his family. RIP Andy.
