Bond, Ernie Met Ernie today whilst walking in Lytham. Such a gent talked to us about his football career hence I came home to Google him. Such a lovely interesting man we tried to persuade him to write about his football memories.

Bond, Ernie Ernie Bond and I are cousins. My father George and his father Ernest were brothers. I remember going to Ernie’s wedding, somewhere in Preston I think ,with my Mum and Dad. I was only about 11. I live in Horwich, as all the Bonds family did at one time. I didn’t realise Ernie had returned to Preston. It would be nice to see and speak to him.

Margaret Goodwin Met this gentleman in a pub in Freckleton while having a meal, had a lovely chat to him, could have spent hours talking to him about his time with Preston North End and Manchester United, told him to write a book and if he does I would certainly buy it.
