Boulton, Colin I played with Colin when we represented Cheltenham schoolboys. He was playing in midfield [left half] in those days. So obviously someone found a better position for him. All the best Colin.

Boulton, Colin Served with Colin (and his Dad) in Glos. Police. Played a lot of Cricket with him. He was fantastic fielder in the gulley and took numerous catches off my bowling!! Ken Daun

Boulton, Colin I played alongside Colin at Charlton Kings. We played the last game of the season playing in the Northern Senior Juniors Cup Final wining the match with 6 goals, Colin scored 4! He was our centre forward. This was April when we returned for pre season training July we heard Colin had signed for Derby as a goalkeeper.

Boulton, Colin Once played against him when he was at Charlton Kings and I was at St. Marks. Even then he oozed class.

Boulton, Colin I watched a cup game between Derby and Bolton Wanderers and wondered why the away fans were chanting our keepers name for the whole match.

Boulton, Colin I saw every match Colin played in Tulsa. We had an amateur team at the time, my best pal Tommy who passed last Friday was the goal keeper. He named his son Colin after Mr Boulton.
