Kenny 5 laps fearon:t: remember the night a certain scotish referee came out the box in front of a full grandstand to have a go at him as he had left a marker on the track then banned him from rest of meeting, respect for kenny for not knocking him flat on his back.:t:RIP an unsong " comets" hero.

Heard tell he died from bowel cancer, knew Kenny well, hadn't seen him in months tho so this is probably why....

RIP Kenny!!
