Hi All, I lived in Ingal Road Joe lived in Tinto Road with his mum. He first made his debute 1958/59 season, His first game was against Man.City on 13th December 1958, he was 18. He had a book of tickets he used to dish out to us kids imagine free tickets in the main stand surounded by all the "hob nobs" - Lewis

Joe made 190 appearances for the Hamers, scoring 6 goals.  He made 3 appearances for England Under 23 team before moving to Chelsea in 1965.

He was a fine full back.
Gercha!
