Dave Thomas

Recommended Posts

In the papers a couple of days ago was a story about Dave Thomas (Everton winger of the 70's).He looked pretty fit, problem is he's slowly going blind.He was pictured with his guide dog, infact the story was to raise awareness of his condition and the need for guide dogs.

Interestingly mentioned that at every medical he had during his football days eyesight was never something checked.( guess this must be the same for the refs !).


The article got me thinking back to the 70's and Dave of moulded studs and socks rolled down fame, flying down the touchline, sticking the ball directly onto Latchfords head.


There's recent talk about Gerry being a great crosser of the ball, but I don't think I'v ever seen a better crosser than Dave Thomas.
