I never managed to see Stanley Matthews in the flesh, but did attend a game featuring one of his compatriots, Tom Finney playing as well as Stan Mortensen, Don Revie and Nat Lofthouse.

I say attended as I was only 4 1/2 year old. I do still have the 'programme' from the game played in Blackpool, but can't say I really remember much about it as it was in 1963. Officially my first ever game of football.
