George's memory is letting him down as Maurice Norman did not play in the game he talks about. Otherwise a great story.

Thanks, Terry.

I always seem to have Norman and Henry in my thoughts of that game; glad you enjoyed it.

Ron, Henry did play in that game. Regardless of whether Norman played or not, it was a great goal on a great day with a great story to end it, George.

I was on the Goodison Road terrace behind Roy Vernon crossing the ball for Alex to rise majestically. It was over 50 years ago and, like most of us who were there that day, I can still see it as it happened as if it were yesterday. There are some things you never forget.
