Bradley, Warren I saw him play for MU at Chelsea, probably 1958 or 1959. He was a brilliant little winger, left Peter Sillett on the deck with his skill. Great memory

Bradley, Warren Mr Bradley was headmaster at my school Whitworth secondary. All the lads at school were footy mad, but we never knew that Mr Bradley had played for Man United and England. He was a very quiet man. The polar opposite of Jack Featherstone his predecessor, who was a fiery passionate character

Bradley, Warren Warren was my headmaster at Lostock Secondary School Manchester. He was a small guy, always fair and mad about football. The school team would play in Celtic hoops or Brazil gold. He spoke in a north eastern UK voice (born in Hyde, Manchester). He must of spent time in the north east? He was a nice bloke.
