SHINTON, Bobby I knew him when he was playing for Lye Town in the West Midlands regional league when he signed his first full time pro contract with Walsall. And when he called at the club he was so excited. I used to train with the club as I was a referee on that league, but naturally never officiated at any of their games.

SHINTON, Bobby You gotta love this man, excellent football player. Even better physio! After a recent car accident Bobby has been helping me with my physio to get me walking again. It's not what you know, it's who you know. Top Man

SHINTON, Bobby Best player I saw in a Wrexham shirt! Magnificent in the 1977/78 promotion year. I remember his debut the previous season home to Portsmouth 21st August 1976 - scored two magnificent goals - the season Wrexham narrowly missed promotion. A candidate for my World XI team!!!
