Fred Chandler
Does that name ring a bell for some?

Apparently made 15 appearances and 2 goals for pool in 1935.

Just found out my neighbour is his God daughter.

Moderately interesting fact for you all...as you were...

The Wiggy,

Me and my pal, Gerry Wolstenholme, the BFC historian went to visit Fred at his home in Crewe just before he died

If you let me have your e-mail I will send you a couple of photos that you can then pass on to his God Daughter

Also, you can post photos on here - I’m sure we’d all be interested to see them.

Thats amazing!

She also showed me a letter written from one Bill Shankly congratulating him on his success - assuming they must have won something big. No mention in the letter of specifics but still a great thing to see.
