Updated: 05-01-18Ex-Derby County forward who also played cricket for Derbyshire, has certainly made the most of life since retiring from sport.

He pursued a career in teaching after a spell at Coventry working as a co-ordinator of 'Enterprise Sky Blue' then became a freelance journalist and broadcaster.

Updated: 03-01-18Sorry to have just heard of the parting of John Faulkner and I was unaware that he was suffering with Alzheimer's. John was very much a part of my development through the youth team to first team Of which I am forever grateful. I have many good memories of John both as a coach and as a person and feel it is right for me to say thanks John RIP
Updated: 03-01-18Brian Clough once said: "Unfortunately not too many of the players wanted to play for Brighton when I got there, but there was one or two we could rely on, and none more so than Steve Piper, who was one of the most honest and genuine lads, if not the most genuine, we had on the books." A £25,000 move later took him along the coast to Portsmouth but a knee injury sustained in his first season at Fratton Park effectively ended Piper's career, although he did later manage to play at non-league level for Worthing. Settled in Southwick, West Sussex where he became an insurance and mortgage broker. Passed away in December 2017 at the age of 64.

Updated: 02-01-18I think Paul played for Farsley Celtic in the Yorkshire League but maybe wrong. He had a Vauxhall FB Victor of which I use to look after through R.A Denisons Armley Vauxhall dealer at the time when he was at Leeds United. It would be nice if this could get back to him for old times sake I know he was very appreciative the way we looked after him and his car.
Updated: 02-01-18Sad news. My thoughts are with the family. He was a good golfer and I enjoyed some great rounds with him and Jimmy Husband in the states and the UK. He always told me to applaud good defending as well as attacking play. Great sense of humour and was a follower of ELO. Fondly remembered.
