Happy 90th Birthday!!! ūüéā

Never had the chance to see him play but heard a few stories from when he played.

A proper hard bastard that Sir Stanley Matthews didn't like playing against.

I remember him playing for Breightmet United later in his career.

Proper character.

He's a free agent isn't he?

Happy birthday.

Only one 90 year-old has been registered with an EFL club.

Thought you might have said that, Dave is the quieter one of them, is Lee still in the building trade?

My dad told me he was a proper full back. I wish him a very happy birthday.

Was it called the "EFL" then?

EFL is the Football League rebranded.

Tommy and Roy Hartle were seen are hard men, but they never wasted a pass.

Happy Birthday Tommy.

According to my mum, Stanley Matthews would ask to see Bolton's team sheet when playing us. If the fullbacks were Banks and Hartle he'd make himself unavailable.

Cheers R. I saved his bacon once at the Knavesmire on a Farnworth Social Circle CC racing trip. Doubt he'd have remembered it the day after due to the the state we were in so I'm sure he won't remember it now!
