Remember him very well one of the top three to ever play for Reds. My personal all time favourite.
Best place for a pre match drink is the Tony Hopper Bar. Speak to any of the officials when you arrive I am sure you will be well looked after. Search out Steve Durham the fountain of knowledge all things Reds.
Also John Walsh Radio Cumbria commentator/reporter who would probably love to do an interview.
Just thought I would make a post and see if anybody has any memories of my Granddad who played for Workington from 1960-66, he unfortunately passed away in January 2020.
I know it's a long shot but does anybody have any photos or programmes with him in it?
Also coming up from Norwich to watch Workington on the 13th August, whats the best pub to go for pre-match drinks?
Thanks in advance.
One of the things the club is really good at now is acknowledging its fantastic history and the efforts of its previous players, I never got to see your Grandad play but their are plenty down the reds who can tell a great story, contact the club I'm sure someone will be delighted to show you around
One of the best midfielders, it was like he had the ball on a string and could see a pass early. Worth the gate money alone to watch, still remember that promotion season and so often the man behind the goals scored.
I can still see Jimmy's face in my mind's eye. Me and my mates used to call him Bugsy. Did anyone else know him by that name? Also, he had bandy legs as I remember. What a talented committed player and a real driving force!! Part of the best Reds team ever to grace Borough Park.
After beating oxford united, ron atkinson said that he had been playing against brazil's inside forwards (Jimmy and dave carr )who had given him a real pasting. Jimmy was the best player i ever saw in a reds shirt.
