Speaking of @DarkFruitsRam7s story, I know of a story to do with a torn banjo.... luckily that story isn’t mine! Can’t even bring myself to type it on here, the thought of it is just too horrendous for any man!

I saw Reg in several matches but never saw him smoking.

One of the most notorious smokers was Burnley's  former manager, Stan Ternent. In his biography he relates getting a letter from a fan complaining about the disgusting example Stan was giving to juveniles by smoking on the touchline. His reply was succinct " B----s, love Stan"

Saw Reg having a ciggy in the toilets at Derby station whilst we were waiting for the 08.00 Derby - London service, when we were heading for a Charlton away game in the early 1960s.

Best memory of the man was an away game at Bury. They had Dave Hickson at no. 9, a notoriously hard (dirty) player. Twice in the first half Reg went for high crosses  in the box, to be taken out unceremoniously by the said Hickson. At the next cross, a corner, Reg was in a position to see Hickson, and as the ball came over, went for a double fisted clearance of the ball. One fist connected firmly with the ball, the other landed a well judged "accidental" punch on Hickson' s jaw.

Hickson was carried off, and did not return - job accomplished! The ref. did not take any action, presumably having decided to let the players sort out this unsavoury character......

Co-incidentally this was Ron Webster's league debut : 2-2 draw, 24/3/1962
