Brotherston, Noel Fantastic player full value. I wasn't a Blackburn fan but as a kid loved watching Noel play. He was all action and gave 100 percent. I am gutted he died at 38. If there is a God, he got this one wrong..... Legend Noel Brotherston

Brotherston, Noel Played against him in the Lancashire amateur league. Nice bloke got up after every tackle with a smile on his face. Allowed to tackle in those days and he needed tackling. Full of tricks.
