Bobby was years ahead of Frank Lampard but of a similar style of play. Seem to remember that he married a young lady who worked as a hairdresser at Tansleys on Hinkley Road in Leicester. I went to school with her brother Keith (Wright) who worked with Don Revie at the FA before becoming the Secretary of the English Golf Union.
