Senior volunteer workers at the club are remembering former member and professional footballer Albert McPherson who died this week aged 87. Albert lived in West Dixon Street and attended St Barts School, initially working as a block printer at local firm Worrall’s. He was a member of the club from 1942 to 1954, before signing for Walsall in 1955.  He played centre half for Walsall until 1964 and was also club captain: he went on to coach and scout for West Brom.

Eric Salthouse, our most senior volunteer described Albert as “a fine athlete and all round good guy, a real role model for  young lads at the club” Albert is pictured above (Front Right) in a Salford Lads Club football team at the annual camp in 1950 with Eric Salthouse (standing, 3rd from left)
