Following on from the Race and Pace programme on BBC, and again thanks to Elaine Heyes, we have good original newspaper photos of Duncan Carter and Roy Gilchrist signing plus a couple of clippings, sent in by Anne Cochrane.
The West Indian pros of course were:
1947-50 E.A. Martindale
1951-52 Roy Marshall
1962 Basil Butcher
and 1965 Pascal Roberts, plus much later in 1990 Delroy Morgan
We only have poor quality clippings for Roy Marshall (1951, 1952) and a poor print off from the Express for Basil Butcher (1962).
Do you have anymore photos of old professionals or clippings we could use in our archive?
