This has brought back to me as a child visiting the brickfields to see Wilf and the Argyle squad training and afterwards into the pub for a few drinks, then wait for autographs, and meet these players, the 1959 argyle squad
were to me the favourites in my long association with Plymouth Argyle, visiting Home Park then was an absolute joy
for me, taken along by my Dad, the pairing of Wilf with Jimmy Gauld along with the excitement they generated always brought something special to the game, it's a great pity that todays loyal fans never got to see this side of
the 50s who were not paid the thousands that they are paid today, Geoff Barnsley was another fine asset who I
watched in his first game in Plymouth in a possibles v probables match Harry Brown being the existing keeper, Geoff
was a breath of fresh air and soon wore the goalkeepers shirt the following season, Wilf & Geoff both came from
West Bromwich Albion, & Jimmy from Everton, these players adequately supported by Williams, Wyatt, Penk, Anderson et al.
I have to stop now as I am getting upset with a lump in my throat.
RIP Wilf you will never be forgotten.
Slider, you sum it up well. You may be pleased to know that even to this day, Harry Penk, Peter Anderson and John 'Cardiff' Williams still meet up at least a couple of times a year. George Baker still alive and well living back in the Valleys. Len Casey was the club's guest at Southend on Saturday and he keeps well too.
