Transcending Rivalries

Sometimes in football there are people who transcend local rivalries. These are men that unify all supporters and touch our hearts in a way that means more than our partisan support for our own team.

So it is with great sadness that this weekend the great Sir Tom Finney passed away. A lifelong friend of our own famous players of past he will be fondly remembered for the exquisite style of football he brought to the North West and the England national team.

Rest in peace Sir Tom Finney.

Great friends; Stanley Matthews, Tom Finney, Jimmy Armfield, Stan Mortenson
