Coleman, Tony My mam used to work at the British Legion on Moss Lane at the top of Maine Rd and on match days Tony used to nip in about 2 o'clock and have a couple of pints of mild and a few fags before he walked down to the ground before kick off.

Coleman, Tony I remember him at Bangor City, that was mid 60s,before he moved to Doncaster. He worked on the building site near my home and I remember getting his autograph as a boy. He stood out and it was no surprise that he moved on.

Coleman, Tony I used to be Tony’s “minder” when he was lodging in Congleton Ave when he first signed for Manchester City. As Wednesday onward we’re curfew nights before Saturdays I would go across and play cards with him.
Occasionally we would break curfew and nip into Manchester !

Coleman, Tony Tony went out with my sister for about 12 - 18 months in around 1968 and I have happy memories of him coming to our council house in his big white American car for dinner. Being just 9 years old at the time, I used to sit in it pretending to drive it. Out of season the team went to America and he brought me a baseball bat, ball and hat back as a present. I remember he had a lions head tattooed on each hand which I was fascinated by. My friends used to continually ask me to get his autograph, he came around most Sunday afternoons. I didn't see the hard side of him. I just remember him always smiling. Would dearly love to speak with him again. He was mad on my sister Ann.

COLEMAN, Tony I trained and played with him when he was at Macclesfield Town. He was revered as a legend while I was there.
