Beyond England

Adevoted family man, he went on to run a tobacconist's and sweetshop in West Bromwich, then a post office in Stourbridge, always retaining his connection with the club he had served with such distinction and which accorded him a signal honour during its 125th anniversary celebrations in 2004, when he was included in Albion's all-time 16-man squad. - The Independent Obituary, 14 March 2012.
