Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ernest "Ernie" Taylor was a footballer who played for four clubs in a 19-year professional career. After Blackpool's defeat by Newcastle United in the 1951 FA Cup Final, it is said that Stanley Matthews told his manager, Joe Smith, that he would like the Magpies' inside-right in the Blackpool team. On 10 October that year, Taylor signed for Blackpool for 25,000. Born in Sunderland in 1925, Taylor was a naval submariner when he joined Newcastle in 1942. At only 5 ft 4 in, he was one of the shortest players in the game, but his defence-splitting passes caused problems amongst the opposition.show more
