Newton, Henry Henry, and his wife-to-be, used to drink in the Griffins Head in Papplewick. My Dad, who was the village Bobby at the time, was a mate of his. My parents went to his wedding I think. Anyway, I have a question, what was his wife’s name? I asked my sister who knew them but she couldn’t tell me.

Newton, Henry I attended the same school as Henry, William Sharp Secondary Bilateral Comprehensive. The football pitch we played on at the school was a real sludge heap when we had a lot of bad weather. I remember on one occasion Henry being displeased with the groundsman when he wouldn't let him play on it, He lived for his football. The school also ran a trip with the county to Wembley when he played for England Boys against Germany.

Newton, Henry I was visiting a relative in Derby on Sunday and bumped into Henry Newton outside his house near Broadway. He seemed very well and easily recognisable from his playing days. Had a good chat about football. He knows my neighbour Barry Butlin.

Newton, Henry Good morning, just started a family tree and was stuck on my dad Gordon, who had a father, my grandad who I never knew called Charlie. Do you know if Charlie had a brother called William and if so was that your father?. Hope you can oblige it would mean the world to me to know.

Newton, Henry Was mates with Henry late 1950s early 1960s when Henry was just starting on Forest's ground staff. He told me when we were on a short night out that Gil Merick had gone to his house on Firbeck estate to try to sign him for Birmingham city and he also asked his brother Ron. Both turned him down. Would love to see him again, but I don't know how to get in touch.

Newton, Henry In contrast to a remark about Henry above. My own experience of Joe Baker was very different too.

Henry's wife-to-be was a friend of my sister. In the mid-sixties as a child at school I was involved in a bad road traffic accident and had two broken legs. Laid up in bed for several months, Henry came to visit me and brought along a Christmas tree for the family. He took my autograph book to the City Ground and had all the Forest team of 1966/7 sign it, along with Manager Johnny Carey and Trainer Tommy Cavanagh.

The team finished runners-up to Man Utd that season. The regular line-up was:

Newton, Henry i remember henry when he was captain of notts fa youth team 1961 and we reached the final of the competion losing narrowly over 2 legs. first at forest where we drew ,then losing away

Newton, Henry If I remember rightly Henry lived @ Firbeck Rd Wollaton with his mum & 2 brothers Ron & Alan.All 3 were good standard footballers I played against Ron when he was playing for 360 Club in Notts Sunday Premier League.I believe Alan worked and played for Players.

NEWTON, Henry Yes, Henry Newton and Joe Baker. The only two players in the 1960s who would never sign kids' autograph books. Always told them to go away. Years later Joe Baker said he would sign my photo, I told him if he did I would rip it up.

Henry Newton An early recollection: Henry, aged 11, was captain of the Firbeck Football Team. In one school match, the team was winning 13-0 at half time. 'For goodness sake lads, ease off' the teacher said. Henry's response was 'But sir, professional footballers get fined if they ease off'. even at that age, he knew where his future lay.
