Jim Twyneham - DJ, quiz master, and above all a life-long City fan, unswerving to the end. The voice of Highfield Road, 'Jim the Tannoy' was the sound of CCFC for, literally, generations of fans. Brought to the club by John Sillett and George Curtis, he fulfilled the role on a voluntary basis, bringing pleasure with an unmistakable vocal quality that was deep and rich, combined with a famously dry wit and a passion for his home town club. 

As a partner in the locally famous "Silk" discothèque, a presenter on local radio, and through involvement in Horizon Studios, base of 2-Tone recording, Jim championed his other love of music.

An active member of the Sky Blue Trust, Jim wanted nothing but the best for CCFC and was prepared to argue for it strongly and at length in those rich tones. 

The Trust wishes to join with all City fans in extending their deepest condolences to Jim’s family for their loss. He will never be forgotten. 

Trust Vice-Chair, Bruce Walker said, "Jim was a mate and a part of my history. When I visited him a few days before his death his last words to me were 'Say Hi to everybody'. I said I would and I’m saying it now on his behalf."

Our thoughts are with his friends and family, particularly his son and daughter, Ben and Aimee.

RIP JT – we’re really going to miss you.
