How sad to lose a true great.I saw him play once at West Brom.in the late 50s when Tom Finney scored in a 1-1 draw.I was stationed in Cornwall at the time and used to scan the forthcoming fixture list and if there was a decent game on at Villa Park or the Hawthorns,I would write to my then girl friend who lived in Birmingham and say “missing you etc” and pop up there always ending up at the match of choice.
