Minute’s silence for Wooler businessman

A silent tribute was held yesterday to honour Wooler businessman Jeff Burnlees.

A minute’s silence was observed before the start of Berwick Rangers’ home game against Queen’s Park at Shielfield Park on Saturday.

Mr Burnlees, who died on Friday, was director of Berwick Rangers and owner of its main sponsor, JB Site Investigations.

A passionate football fan who lived in Wooler, he supported Berwick Rangers, Wooler and Newcastle United.
