Nat Lofthouse RIP

Postby peebles » Sun Jan 16, 2011 12:31 pm

Passed away this morning, after a long illness.

A real footballer from the golden age of the game.

Was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago. He was happy to sign the print I'd had done with him in his England shirt. It sits proudly in my living room now.

RIP big man.

A great centre forward and a humble man. He will be greatly missed. His death follows a lengthy debilitating illness. I've met him a few times and he was always happy to talk with the fans and always said thank you for asking when asked for his autograph. I count myself lucky to have seen him play.
