Mem­o­ries of two gents

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

ON the night to re­mem­ber Bernard Halford, we also re­mem­bered Roy Cheetham, ex-City player, who died sud­denly on Sunday, De­cem­ber 8.

A minute’s ap­plause was ob­served for Roy.

I got to know him as a fel­low fan of Pete MacLaine and also The Em­per­ors of Rhythm.

Sit­ting next to me on the night, was Ray Vaughan, who played with Roy for Manch­ester boys, back in the 50s. Poignant mem­o­ries.

Roy like Bernard, will be sadly missed.

Both true gentle­men.

The event, or­gan­ised by ‘Mr Gor­ton,’ Al­lan Grafton, raised £1,642 on the night for The Christie, where Bernard was treated.
