It was. My dad played on the right wing. Ronnie Farnworth. Used to brag about all the goals he got but was in awe about Tommy. His lads never made it but I did get a cup or two in the US at a late age. Cheers

 

Was that Ronnie, formerly of Marsh House Chippy?

That was Ronnie Tattersall. I remember playing against him when he played for CWC Engineering in the Darwen Amateur League. Last I heard he was living in the Lake District.

I'm afraid any attempt at communicating with our owners will be futile. It just will not reach them. They are stuck in their ivory tower.

I hope and pray that they will, at some stage, realise that a football club cannot exist without supporters and that owners need to have a two-way communication with the supporters. Only then will we be able to present our views.

How many years now? The wait goes on.

He still is Tony, and is keeping well apparently

Great post!!

I’ve just been revisiting these... a big part of my formative years these books

I've only got three of those. When I went into Seed and Gabbutts to get the fourth I was told 'Harry's photocopier has broken down'.

Just an update really:

When I posted this as an initiative, little did we know the 'curve ball' that we were to face, just the following day!

As a group, we have considered the disclosures, have really girded up our collective loins and are really going to fight to protect what is all of our heritage.

I have been in contact with a number of BRFCS members and promised to be back in touch earlier this week. I apologise that I haven't done so as yet but there are only so many hours in a day.

I call on all Rovers supporters worldwide to oppose the suggestions of 'The Coventry 3' but at the same time have empathy for Venkys, who we all firmly believe do have Rovers best interests at heart.

Collectively, we can overcome this but we need to be united as one.

WE ARE The Rovers!!!

Hey mate, there's a very very easy way to get in contact with the Venkys, not sure if I can elaborate as don't want to break GDPR but I will look it up and see what I can explain.
