Bartley, Tony Having time on my hands due to this current 'Lockdown' I retrieved my football autograph books from the loft and going through them by division found the Bury FC pages. There was a autographed team photo and a letter from Tony Bartley (in green ink) returning it to me as requested. I do recall sending this with a sae to Mr Bartley and can date it to the 1963-64 season as the only unsigned player Billy Calder had moved to Oxford Utd during November 63. I am glad to hear that he is fit and well and thank him for doing that for me all those years ago. I am sorry to hear of the plight of Bury FC and have been to Gigg Lane many times over the years when we have played there.

Bartley, Tony I worked for tony for a few years driving his taxi which he also drove in and around stalybridge until he had an accident and was no longer fit to drive for long periods. This was around 15 years ago. I think he still lives in stalybridge as I have seen him in the town only last week

Bartley, Tony I watched him play for Bury. A great talent

Bartley, Tony Tony is still as fit as ever at 76. Still living in Stalybridge and keeping up with the football world. I think he'd still like to play if he got the chance. He plays often with his Grand children. Recently saw a great picture of him coming off the pitch after playing against Sir Stanley Mathews.

Bartley, Tony I'm sat with him right now. Its his 77th Birthday today. He's as fit and well as always. Still talking about and loving watching football.

Bartley, Tony Tony was a fine footballer and gentleman when he played for Sligo Rovers.I remember when he came back to play against us,and he destroyed our defense playing at center forward and I think he scored 3 goals that day. Thank you for the memories Tony

Bartley, Tony Aiden I m Tony's daughter Lisa please contact me at he would be over the moon to hear from you. He never stops talking about his time in Sligo and all the fabulous people he met.

Bartley, Tony I remember Tony very well at Bury. One match day he appeared outside the changing rooms and asked me to take a package to a gateman at the front of the ground. I was so delighted that he asked me. That was the big thing of my day, bearing in mind I was only about 11 years old and Bury mad.
