Wharton, Jackie I remember Jackie and Les Graham coming to play for Newport County. I played in the school football team with Terry, great days and they were a great family.

Wharton, Jackie I am 74, in my youth I worked along side Jackie Wharton in the 1970,s at the Park Hall Hotel Wolverhampton. Jack was the Bars manager and lived locally with his wife and son Terry.
He regaled me with football stories and press cuttings when he played alongside Tom Finney.
I also watched Terry in his time at The Wolves at at the Molinieux. He was great guy had a wonderful sense of humour. He was also brill at Table Tennis..

Wharton, Jackie During the 1950’s Jackie Wharton and his son Terry lived next door to my family in Turton Street, Bolton in what was a council house. At the time Jackie played for Blackburn Rovers and he was kind enough to take my autograph book to Ewood Park and got all the players to sign the book. Apparently Terry and I used to play out together but I never remember football being a participation activity.

Wharton, Jackie Great player and amazing Grandfather. Scored on debut like his son Terry. First father and Son to ever score on debut and both play pro football at the same time. Jackie died May 1997 peacefully in the Worcester Royal Hospital.
