Farrimond, Syd I remember Syd vividly playing in 60's & 70's.He was one of Bolton's most consistent players in my early years as a supporter .He had a swift turn of speed , and no wingers got the better of "Syd". I remember Syd & Olive having the Newsagents on Chapel Street Leigh .My mother in Law Kate lived across the road .Graham Kate's husband took my two sons Gareth and Stuart (Bolton fans ) across to Syd to receive his Signiture .We still have his Signiture and a match with mine which a acquired 50 years ago when I was a similar age To Gareth my eldest son.
My one regret is I didn't have a conversation with Syd about his football career at Bolton .I was too star struck to speak seriously !! I believe he his a every friendly and nice man and I hope he stays safe and well .He is a legend to me .When I worked at Townsend Cycles in Leigh in Mid 90's he used to run from his car/van to deliver the newspapers from his Shop !! he was in his mid fifties still fit to run !! Happy Memories Kindest
