Jim Townsend

Nominated By

David Gillespie

Where Do You Live


Why nominated

For his masterly organisation at those pre-planned free-kicks rehearsed lovingly in training....where 6 players all ran in complex diversionary routes from the ball, leaving no-one behind to actually kick the ball.... and of course for his general friendly charm. 8-))

Memorable Games

Don't remember who it was against in late 60's, but I can still visualise him wasting time keeping possession at the cornerflag at Tynie in injury time - pity we were 1-2 down at the time.

Other Comments

Compared to the current shower he WAS a hero !! Also needed a laugh to cheer up after Ross County.
