Bert never forgot the man who had originally taken him to Walsall from Thompson Brothers.  Andy Wilson gave him the opportunity that took Bert so far and made him a football legend way beyond the shores of Europe.

Bert and Bill Shorthouse proudly holding the League Trophy, two lads from Bradley who went to the same school, St. Martin’s.  Bert often wondered if this was the first time two lads from the same school had lifted the First Division Cup.

As well as the First Division table that shows Wolves winning the title by four points I have included all four divisions as it is interesting to see who played in the various divisions at this time and how many teams are no longer in the football league.
