I knew Ray Cording for most of his playing career. When he was just starting out he came with Keith Goulding to the Featherstone Youth Club dances in the Parochial Hall on Green Lane where I was secretary. Later he lived next door to my dad in Girnhill Lane. I must have seen nearly all his games and for old stagers like me he has left many pleasant memories.

He had speed an excellent sidestep and I also remember him playing on the left wing. Eric Batten moved him to stand off in 1952. Saw him at Wembley that year. Condolences to his family, I too have been away. Regards to Alan Whitworth who played in the under 18's at that time and is related to him.
