It's too easy to decry the cosseted millionaire players of today, but they seem to lack loyalty and club devotion. In his Newcastle days Wyn was an absolute hero, taking all the rough stuff that defences threw at him but always turning out for the next game, always exciting, always giving his all. Dare I mention that he was succeeded by the mighty Supermac, but those of us who experienced the Fairs Cup campaign will never forget Wyn and the team of miracle workers who took on Europe's finest and won.

As a youngster,growing up on the Burnden Park terraces,he was my footballing hero- not only known as "Wyn the Leap",his heading ability (less said about his shooting skills!) had him very affectionately known on the "Lever End" as "Nod'em in Wyn"! I treasured an A4 colour print of him for many years,until it faded to yellow on my bedroom wall! Many thanks for those great memories of long ago Wyn - I wish you well!

In 2005:working in a bakery.he said 'You can tell the fans I'm making lots of dough now!'
Come on without,come on within,you'll not see nothing like the mighty Wyn'!
1965. A midweek match against Leicester City. Wyn scores superb headed winning goal. In my very inferior way, I attempted to model my own game on Wyn's for years after in local football. Great memories. Well done, Wyn!
I meet up with Wyn in Bolton market every Saturday Morning between 9 to 10 am. Fantastic man and treasured by all the football community of Bolton. A real gentleman.
Met wyn back in the 80s when I was presenting a sportsmanship night in Manchester, he asked me as a man city fan, do I think city buying Rodney marsh lost us the title that year, I think it was a big let down for him, as it was the closest he had been to winning the league.
My dad (Elwyn Davies) was Wyn's uncle and introduced Wyn to local league football. The rest, as they say, is history. Proud to be related to Wyn and proud of the small part my dad had in introducing Wyn to the game.
