Footballer Ernie Moss has died aged 71, the latest victim of the plague of dementia style diseases in ex-footballers. The forward scored over 150 goals for Chesterfield in over 400 games for The Spireites. Moss also played for Peterborough United, Doncaster Rovers, and Lincoln City, and was a non-league manager for over a decade as teams such as Gainsborough Trinity. A frequent and persistent header of the ball in his playing days, Moss was diagnosed with Pick’s Disease in 2014, and a rapid decline was exacerbated by a bout with covid last year.
He was picked by four teams: Exu’s Exiters, The House of Extravaganza (on a roll!), Leftovers, and The Master of Unlocking.
