Played a blinder in the '57 final. Another boyhood hero gone. RIP Stan.

Stan was typical black country, didn't suffer fools gladly. Lived in the Bilston area. Stan and Pat Saward were the best two players on the pitch in the 57 final.

Rest in Peace Stan.

Another one my Dad always goes on about - he was at the 57 cup final. I must remember to tell him and who is still with us from that side

Being part of the hastily put together Man U team after the Munich disaster, he played in both the 1957 and 1958 FA Cup finals.
RIP.

Sad news.

Didn't Stan go up to Man Utd after the Munich disaster to 'help them out'?

Edit ** Answered my question, Andy Lochead**

Read about Stan on the OS. The only player to have played in an FA Cup match when he was cup tied, and man of the match in the 1957 FA Cup final.

RIP
