Lawton, Tommy Used to work up the road from tommy in sherwood notts, remember chattering many times with tom, he used to pop in my shop a couple of times each week in late 80s early 90s. A true gent and he even gave me some Everton souvenirs which i still treasure. I used to fix his shoes, remember his feet were battered. A great player and gentleman. Real shame about his dour times and darkside. Loved the guy. R.i.p tom
