Wanderers Ways. Neil Thompson 1961-2021

Tommy Banks


Happy Wanderer
  • Nov 1929 Farnworth British Left Back 3 Wolves May 1948 255 2 Altrincham

    The 'hard man' of the 50's Tommy was a no nonsense full back who either let the man or ball past him but never both at the same time. Tommy was renowned for giving the opposition 'gravel rash' due to the track around the Burnden Park pitch.

    He won honours with England and represented the Football League and collected an FA Cup winners medal in 1958 when the Whites beat Manchester United 2-0.
