Players and Personalities
Just Some of the Many Players and Personalities I Admired
I was just recently loaned a book by Peter Gibson called 'Sunderland's Beautiful
Game' and I enjoyed it that much I now have my own copy. Reading and looking through
all the photos made me realise just how many players and personalities I came across
and admired throughout my time in local football. Obviously some players were better
than others but football will always be a team game and if you played in any team
it meant you were an important part of it and had some talent. As I'll never be able
to add all of these players and personalities to my website I've added a section
below to show those that I didn't admire and if you are not on this list then I'm
pleased as I would hate to upset anyone that I admired.
The following lists are, in alphabetical order, are far from finished and I apologise
for names not yet added. There has never been any logic in the order that I have
added to them. An example of this is Freddie Guy, a player who I had admired for
years, and it took over 15 months before I added him. I’m sure I’ve added people
that didn’t expect to be mentioned and vice versa.
Please contact me about anyone, I've included or omitted that you have an opinion on, or even if it's just to say hello.
