We are sad to report that former Toon winger Tommy Robson haz passed away!---he woz 76 years old
Tommy woz one of my school boy heroes az I stood in the old Leazes End in the 1960s
He had hiz own song az well, like most players had in them days!
"Tommy Robson!---Tommy!---Tommy!--Robson!", The Leazes End would belt oot az he scored a goal!
If my memory sorves me correctly, he played in the number 11 shirt and scored quite a few goal and woz 2nd anly to the great Wyn Davies in the scorin charts in 1967 or 1968? (cannit remember exactly!)
