Brownie signs off after 40 years at Sale Greyhound Club 

They say “all good things must come to an end” and that is unfortunately the case, with one of the Sale and District Greyhound Racing Clubs most loyal servants in Geoff Brown.
“Brownie” as he is affectionately known within the industry first walked out onto the Sale track in 1980 (about the same time as Blondie had the number one hit “Call me” and you could grab a cheeseburger from McDonalds for 35 cents)
A much respected person by participants due to his humble nature, his loyalty and reliability have been appreciated by all at his home track of Sale.
A gentleman to the end and wanting to leave with no fanfare, not even a little, Brownie signed off for the last time on Sunday the 10th of January 2021.
So after more than 40 years, Sundays will now be spent with his family, his feet up, the possibility of a cold beer in hand and the races on the television.  

The club will have a race in his honour, and he will be given a small gift from the club, as he enjoys a meal with Mrs Brown at the club this week as part of the “no fanfare” he requested….so please don’t tell him!!
