Did you see Bill McGarry play at the Old Rec?  Was he as good as my father said he was?  He thought he was the best header of a football, given his lack of height, he had seen. He had the rare ability to hover at the top of his jump.

Saw him play at the Old Rec and VP. He seemed to have springs in his legs and could easily out head taller players,  Great  tackler and played for England in the 1954  World Cup. Allen and King were also in the initial World Cup selection tour, but did not make the finals.
