Gordon Banks, dies at 81 years. World's Greatest Goalkeeper?

Post by G#Gill »

I felt privileged to speak to Gordon Banks on the telephone. He rang to book a charter on our charter/trip boat in the late 1980s. He was quietly spoken, very polite and grateful for my help ! I can remember saying to him that I was privileged to be able to speak to probably the finest goalkeeper in the world. He thanked me and sounded genuinely surprised that I knew who he was and that I'd said that to him !





R.I.P. Mr. Banks - you should have received a knighthood, IMO.
I'm a Saga-lout, growing old disgracefully

A memory to treasure indeed. Leicester were fortunate to have Banks followed by Shilton in the net.
