Our Old friend and one of Tommy’s many playing colleagues at Parkside Ray Abbey informs me that Tommy is doing well and making good progress, and that he would welcome some of his old playing pals and “Fans” to visit him.Ray say’s visiting time is pretty flexible but just to be safe ring up first.

Is it true that Tommy was so fast that he used to comb his hair as he ran down the touch-line!

Get well soon Tommy.
