John H Haynes OBE, the creator of the Haynes Manual

If Yeovil hang on for next season then a trip to Haynes Museum at Sparkford could be a fitting tribute...

I live 20 miles from there and used to live 5 miles from there yet I still have never been there, when there is something interesting near to your abode you often overlook it.

Gordon Banks played against us once, for Chesterfield in 1959.
I wonder if those who were at the CG that day thought that the young keeper would one day be a WC winner.

A shame as well that a fair few of the WC winning team, for whatever reasons, had to sell their medals.

RIP.

I only saw him play once, in charity game for  at the County Ground in 1982 a game he played with a certain George Best, Don Rogers, Mick Channon, Mike Sumerbee, John Francombe, Ian Botham and Viv Richards.

Even with one eye and being in his mid 40s he still made a few excellent saves when he came on.

George Cohen.

Three of them graced the CG carpet in Jan 67.

The only one I saw was Alan Ball in 1980.

I saw Ball, Moore and Peters play against us and Banks in a charity game. But being only 4 months old when they won the world cup obviously they were all in their final season or 2 of playing.
