But ,What happened to poor old Hodgy;s benefit money , did it end up in the Co -Op .

Yes, I read in Hodgy's book (great read) that he arrived at the Lane the next morning to collect his testimonial money and the  Blade's chairman (was it Blacow Yates then ?) explained that the office had been broken into overnight and the money was stolen.

H Blacow Yates was chairman at the time but it was the club secretary that broke the news. The cash had been bagged up for going to the bank. There’s no mention of a break in.

Sorry Jim, I must be mistaken about a break in (bad assumption), yes it would be the club secretary that broke the news.

Correction. It was in Dick Wragg’s time as chairman. Blacow Yates was long gone by then.

Sorry shouldn't have answered you like that, it must be with reading a lot of the other posts on here, anyway he did alright once he settled down, made a mistake early on but then pulled off a few good saves
