Aitken, Charles Charlie was a gent. Spent most of my youth from age 7 watching Charlie play. Was there when he broke Billy Walkers club appearances record. I played in goal for a Birmingham council team against Charlie in what was just a kickabout really. I saved a header from Charlie and at the end he applauded me although we had list it was one of my most memorable days I think we lost 8 0. Charlie Aitken applauding me
