Blue Plaques for Busby Babes

By , 30th September 2011 11:08

In this moving article in Red News, Tom Clare describes how a great project initiated by pupils and staff at Stretford High School led to blue commemorative plaques being placed on the digs of two of the Busby Babes: Tommy Taylor and Duncan Edwards.

At the time of the tragedy of the Munich disaster, Taylor was living at 22 Greatstone Road and Edwards’ digs were at 19 Gorse Avenue.

The plaque on Edwards’ former home was unveiled by his former team mate Sir Bobby Charlton. International cricket umpire Dickie Bird, who had played football alongside his friend Tommy as a schoolboy in Barnsley, did the honours at Great Stone Road. The commemorations were reported by the Manchester Evening News.

A couple of days after the Red News article had found me via twitter, a tweet from @sportcloseup provided a reminder that Edwards would have been 75 on 1 October 2011. The sportcloseup website has information on memorials to Edwards both in Manchester and in his home town of Dudley.
