Former Footballer for Middlesbrough

Former Footballer for Middlesbrough

I remember him playing for Middlesbrough do you? Owen Rooks tells us: ”Derek could regularly be seen on the No 65 United bus travelling to and from the Boro..and that was when he was in the first team. Professional footballers earned pretty much the same as a lot of the fans who went to see them in those days…how times have changed!!” Keith Harrison tells us: ”As Derek travelled on the 65 bus he was friendly with my Auntie Minnie Harrison of Lax Street Carlin How who was a United bus conductress based as Loftus.   Derek was kind enough to get all the first team autographs for me in my first autograph album.   Sadly this book is no longer in my possession.” Fred Brown also tells us: ”Similarly, one of his teammates, Derek Stonehouse who played Right Back in the same team, travelled from Lingdale to Borough on the Number 58 bus. As you say, things have changed, but he was certainly a celebrity in our little Service 58 Bubble.”
Photograph once again loaned to us by Loftus Youth Club; thanks go to Owen, Keith and Fred for the updates.
