Nat Lofthouse

I'm fascinated by the history of football in the 1950s. When one club players were less than handsomely paid for entertaining tens of thousands of fans every week. It was in this period that Hibs had plans afoot to increase the capacity of Easter Road to 98,000. Unthinkable now.

Nat Lofthouse, who died yesterday, was an icon of that time. A 14 year career with Bolton and 30 goals in just 33 games for England.
