Tonight, on the 61st anniversary of his sad passing in the wake of the Munich air disaster, Stourbridge FC are proud to be hosting a DUNCAN EDWARDS TRIBUTE PRESENTATION, which will look at the life, football career and legacy of the Dudley born Manchester United and England star.
A 'slide presentation' and talk will be staged by Jim Cadman, based on his recently published book 'Duncan Edwards - Black Country Boy to Red Devil' in the Glassboys Bar at the Football Ground.
Graham Williams, who captained West Bromwich Albion to FA Cup Final and League Cup Final victories in the 1960’s, will be with Jim and he will talk with Graham about his memories of Duncan Edwards and specifically playing against Duncan in the FA Youth Cup Final when Albion played the emerging Busby Babes team of Manchester United team in 1955.
Graham will then take questions from the audience and you can share your own memories of the Busby Babes.
Copies of the very informative book, with the foreword written by Sir Bobby Charlton CBE, will also be available to purchase -price £10.
If any club members or supporters have memorabilia or photographs relating to Duncan Edwards, Jim would love to meet you.
