Alan William Jolliman 19/10/29 - 6/1/2014 (below)
We make no apology for publishing again the incriminating photograph of Dugdale, serial killer and self-styled king of bad hairpiece makers attempting to throttle Alan (Billy) Jolliman, one-time President of the UK Association of Optimists during their bitter rivalry in the early 1970s.
The cause of the enmity was never clearly established but sources close to Mr Jolliman hint at clandestine contact between him and Gloria Blanche Dugdale, wife of Norman Dugdale.
The photograph led to the successful prosecution of Dugdale for assault. Subsequent police investigations led to a further 1,208 charges being laid and on the 23rd October 1976, Dugdale was found guilty of the murder of all the Macclesfield Town supporters during and after a home game against Glossop Athletic. Dugdale died in prison. He is reported to have confided in the prison doctor, Terence Nostrill (53), saying "They're all bastards, them Glossop bastards. Bastards."
Billy Jolliman perished in a domestic explosion. Said his wife of 50 years, Beryl Ada Jolliman (87): "He always looked on the bright side. He'd gone looking for a gas leak under the stairs with his lighter. I told him to be careful. His last words were 'Don't be daft, lass, it'll be...'".
