One of the true Rovers legends and one of a rare breed, a one-club player. He’s my generation and I watched him develop as a youth player, reserve and first teamer before becoming an unlucky manager. He started out as a midfielder before becoming a solid full back.
Believe it or not, I saw what was probably his first ever game for Rovers in a pre-season friendly at The Tower against New Brighton. I think John Manning was also playing. Now that was a hell of a long time ago.
