Frank Lord - Cape Town City
#1
Read in the papers last week that Frank Lord the former Manager of Cape Town City in the late 60's early 70's had passed away.

I will always remember Frank for the times he would 'fall out' with us referees and linesmen during matches and straight after matches, yet the next time you met up all was forgotten.

:rip:
Always enjoy life - and remember there is always someone worse off than yourself - treat others as you yourself would want to be treated.

sad to hear, I have many memories of watching the top Cape Town team perform, and he could always be counted on to get some quality guest players.

How many do you remember Penelope?

Gary France (with the white boots)
John Sissons
Donald Gie (also died in tragic circumstances)
Peter Lorimer
Kevin Keegan

Will have to get the memory cells going now

Hartleyvale is now a hockey stadium, the railway stand and the Hoskin stand have been pulled down.

Some more players include Mick Hill and Alan Welsh will have a think about the Bobby's
