Researching former players
« on: May 29, 2020, 09:13:32 AM »
I have had a couple of enquiries recently from people researching former players.
If anyone has any information please can you DM me and I will pass it on?

First: Graham Thomson. He is, as far as we know, Lynn's youngest first-team player making his debut on  Tuesday, May 3rd 1955 against Bradford City Reserves at the age of 15 years 9 months and 5 days.
He went on to sign for Spurs as a youth team player. Does anyone know of him?

Second: Peter McCall. He had a successful career with Oldham and Hereford but is said to have attended KES in Lynn.
Peter passed away in February.
An article in the Bristol Post suggests he was scouted playing for Lynn and joined Bristol in 1952 - which means he would have been 15-16 years old.
I doubt that this was for Lynn first team but might have been for the Reserves or at schoolboy level. Unfortunately, the lack of access to the library rather hampers any research.
