Ferguson, Bobby My grandparents (Les and Maud) lived next door to Bobby in Hornchurch, Essex. Bobby kindly gave me a West Ham signed by all players, including the World Cup heroes, team photo. A few years later I gave it to a friend who was a West Ham fan, I am still a Leeds supporter. One of my first football memories, thanks.

FERGUSON, Bobby Bob lives in Adelaide with his Australian wife Greer. They moved to Oz following his West Ham retirement in 1981 and testimonial game with Southampton. Bob only visited the UK for his mothers funeral....he did not move back to the UK. Following a couple of seasons with Adelaide City (standard way below Bob's) he coached Burnside Rugby Club and had them running around in black bin liners as part of his training and fitness conditioning...apparently this was a pre-season West Ham practice. A great bloke.
