Tilford, Arthur Arthur told me that he had kicked a football further than any other player. He claimed, that whilst playing for Nottingham Forest that a clearance of his went out of the ground and landed in a coal barge that was passing on the nearby River Trent. It was recovered in Hull. Whether this was true or not, I never knew. He was a lovely, lovely man and always had a twinkle in his eye when he told this tale, so, who knows?
