Layne, David David Layne scored a flying header in a 2 2 draw against WBA in 1964. It was my first game at Hillsborough and from that day I fell in love with Blue and White. Like many of us old and young to lose him and Swan took years to get over. I’ve since played golf with him (what an honour) and still watch his 2 goals at Arsenal, in I think in 64, on YouTube. Only David Hirst came near to one of my hero’s as a no 9.

Layne, David My hero in the early 60's and remember seeing him score consecutive hat tricks at home v Man City and Blackburn Rovers. Used to see him and his wife in the Sheaf Island on a Wednesday and he as always been a perfect gent and good company with his knowledge of how the game should be played.
