Remember a save that he made for Forest against Swindon in the cup where he appeared to dive full length and catch a ball that had already gone past him destined for the net. A brilliant goalkeeper who was around at the same time as Banks and so never received full recognition of his skills
aye aye aye aye, Grummitt is better than Yashin, Joe Baker is better than Eusabio, and Spurs are in for a thrashing!
We used to drive over from Manchester when United played Forest in the 60's, I always thought that Grummitt was one of the best goalies that I ever saw play !!
Grummitt's home league debut for Forest got off to a really bad start .... straight from the kick off Jim Iley, presumably trying to give the young keeper an early touch of the ball, sent a crisp back pass to the young keeper - but well wide of him and straight into the back of the net ... so Peter's first touch of the ball was to fish it out of the back of the net! At least things got much better over the next 10 years as Grummitt went on to become a much loved and highly successful Forest keeper
I remember having a beer with Terry Hennesey, Forest and Wales captain about Peter's skills and comparing him with Gordon Banks. I agreed with Terry when he said that Gordon dominated the penalty area whereas Peter was the best goal line keeper going. He made some tremendous stops, his reactions were lightening.
Do you have any interesting, happy, or humorous memories of Peter?
If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
