not being funny, lots of good names on there, but where or where is Chic Bates?
The guy gave great service twice, as a manager took us to the highest league position ever as a manager, and had he not been sacked and replaced by, eventually, Ian McNeill the club may never have suffered in the way it has fo rthe last 10 years.

Take Paul Edwards and Fred Daves out and we're getting there..
Real quality Alf Wood, Alan Durban, Jack Keay, Jake King, Graham Turner, Tony Kelly, Ian Atkins, Chic Bates, Ken Mulhearn, Colin Griffin, Nigel Pearson, John McGinley, Vic Kasule, Paul McGuire, Sammy Irvine, Bob Wardle, Jim Holton (RIP), Joe Hart. Probably the worst side I can remember, but gave me one of the most memorable days out ever.......the Great Escape team that won at Exeter 2000.
I would have liked the great Peter Broadbent. One of the finest players to pull on a Town shirt. Considering his past, he spoke very warmly of his Shrewsbury playing days on "Meadow Memories". However, sadly he isn't enjoying the best of health.
