Still no sign of Nat, has she really flounced off?

You get a point for Frank Finlay and, because I'm a forgiving sort of guy, I won't deduct it for not getting Tommy Banks.

I hope, by the same token, that you'll forgive me if I don't comment on what you do on your way home from the pub.

I didn't think I had to name everyone from Farnworth! This might interest you.

It is interesting in an odd sort of way but Thora Hird was from Morecambe, wasn't she?

She was interviewed by Melvyn Bragg before she died in 2003.

It was on the telly yesterday. Mrs Bobsworth said it was really worth the watch.

She was indeed from Morecambe. Always loved Thora Hird, especially her later collaborations with Alan Bennett. Just watched her in this, with a buxom Diana Dors. Diana's full range of acting skills are on show here.

I demand she comes back. Unless she does, I'm going round to her place with my projector. I have hundreds of slides about slippers through the ages. The section 'How slippers won the war' is particularly enlightening.
And don't think Eric will stop me.

Aye. And John Laurie too.
Mrs Bobsworth tells me that Thora's later collaboration with Alan Bennett stemmed from him being impressed by her performance in A Kind of Loving, partly filmed in Bolton.

They had Sergio Aguerro missing injured in the second leg so started with Forlan, Jose Antonio Reyes and Maxi Rodriguez but we defended superbly and went through with a nil all draw having won the first leg 1 nil.
I went to that match too, and have an Atletico Madrid v Bolton match scarf bought from one of the stalls outside the ground which i'll never part with.I view that night as the very end of the "Big Sam glory days" even though he'd left the club a few months before it was through his efforts we were in Europe.
I have the programme for the home match against Atletico. Noticed it this morning whilst scrabbling around. Also  the programme for Syd Farrimond's debut at PNE in 1958. Tommy Banks and Tom Finney were both playing for England that day. I was at both matches and the match in Madrid.

I also have a never-worn BWFC shirt signed by Frank Worthington. I paid quite a lot for that mainly because it was being auctioned for charity.

A friend of mine, affected by HS2, is clearing his house prior to having it valued, and he's offered me a large number of Wanderers programmes collected by his father. This is great news for me, but I fear I may be the recipient of some serious flak on the home front.
I don't care. There might be a gem amongst them. Always fun sorting through old programmes.
Isn't it?

I gave away my collection of programmes about fifty years ago but I've still got a big pile accumulated since the early nineties (the ointment isn't working).

Yesterday I came across the programme for the 1982 Frankie Vaughan Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Hillside. Amongst those playing were Sir Matt Busby, Gordon Banks, Roger Hunt, Willie Morgan, Alan Gowling, Chubby Chandler and a 24 handicapper from Bolton Old Links called Graham Ball.

Came across an old copy of Tripe 'n' Trotters from 2004, concluding the search for the ugliest Trotter.
Can't say I disagree.

I think I've got that one too amongst a few copies of TnT and White Love. I preferred TnT.

I also have a small collection of Road Runner Videos. My favourite is the second leg of the League Cup semi-final against Swindon in 1995, prior to the Wembley final against Liverpool. The late great Dave Higson's pre-match interviews with Wanderers fans is comedy gold.

I've got it. It was actually my second thought, before your clues, but I saw Tommy Neill play a few times for the Wanderers.
I think this must be a very early photo of him. I remember him with a different hairstyle and maybe just a few years older.
I'm sure I saw him play for Bury too.
I expect I might have also had his autograph. It would have been in my autograph collecting days.

Tom Neill it is. Before my time though.

For some reason, I can almost see his signature in my minds eye as T K Neill written legibly.
Does that sound right with you?

I remember that too. Forgot to mention Roy Hartle but I'm still trying to remember V Pilling and there are a couple  more still to figure out.

Yes he did, originally owned by his dad. It was on Willows Lane.
As a youngster I went caddying for Vince, but only twice, and the second time I stayed in the car as it was piddling down. I was only 12/13, and he took me as a favour to my mum. Not having a clue about what I was doing maybe had an influence on the short number of times I 'helped'  Very Happy
