Former Sporting Life editor Graham Taylor has died aged 80


Graham Taylor, who spent 40 years at The Sporting Life finishing as editor for 13 months in 1985-86, has died aged 80.

Gentleman Ranters today carries an obituary written by Taylor’s former deputy on the now defunct daily horseracing paper Jeremy Chapman.

Chapman writes: “One of the people he helped was John McCririck in his days as an award-winning investigative journalist. ‘Big Mac’ often used to have trouble writing intros but Graham would always come up with a good one and get the piece started.”
