Svarc, Bobby Meet Bobby walking my dog in the Ribble Valley. Handed me a Jehovah’s Witness leaflet.
Got chatting about this dog.
Asked me what I did and I asked him.
Played football. Who for? Blackburn Rovers. As a Rovers fan, I asked him more and he shared stories. What a nice man and he is in amazing shape for this age. Made my day. Looking for some of my oldest programmes so if I see him again I will give them to him.

Svarc, Bobby Never met Bobby whilst he was playing but met him many times since. A lovely man and very sincere and never had any regrets on his career. Not seen him since I left the Blackburn area some 20 years ago but still have very fond memories of a wonderful man.

Svarc, Bobby Bobby Svarc is one of the nicest footballers I have ever met. His first game was against Bolton Wanderers at Burden park. I met on that date a group of people from one of his former clubs who followed him not a club. He always gave 100 per cent effort. At away games he always chatted. Years ago I was talking to some women in Liverpool and I mentioned I was a Rovers fan. To my amazement they were distant cousins. When I use to see him I would chat to him and he always stopped. Nice nice man. He always spoke well of the late Noel Brotherston.

SVARC, Bobby Bobby was a great ambassador for Colchester United and always played to his best potential. Deadly in the 6 yard box. He could turn on a sixpence! His height and stature helped his goal poaching instincts. Off the pitch a very nice man. I remember fondly of his goal scoring prowess with the partnership formed with John Froggatt, both formerly of Boston United, who had played together under their manager, Jim Smith at the time. Smith later took Bobby to Blackburn with him when he became their manager. The entry of clubs above is incorrect. Bobby also played for Boston but the club is not mentioned in the list. He was one of my boyhood heroes and remains a legend in Colchester to this day. Come on Svarcy!
