RUCKER, Norman (Norrie) This is my amazing! Dad, my hero. He is 81 now living with my mum in a cared assist apartment and has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s/ Parkinson’s. On good days he can still tell us stories of his beloved Manchester City when he used to sneak into Maine Rd as a kid under the turnstiles to watch city. Even though he is not known to many football fans because his amazing career was short lived because of injuries, he is still a legend to me. I often take him to his FPA meetings at Etihad and he attends the annual FPA Dinner. I am truly proud of him for achieving his dream as a kid from Kippax St, Moss Side, from a family of 7 siblings, to actually be taken on for England youth team (5 England Caps), to being signed up professional for Manchester City in May 1954. Never give up on your dreams!
