Ivor was my dad's hero, and rated as one of the best footballers in the world in the mid to late fifties. I'm just glad I got to see him in his final years with the Swans in the late sixties. Still a class act then. I always rub the left boot on his statue before games at the Liberty.

Yep - I was lucky enough to catch the end of his career with us too. Pure class and a lovely, humble man. I remember playing against his son at Bishopston and Ivor was on the touchline and was applauding both teams. We thought we'd died and gone to heaven.

He and his brother Len used to deliver potatoes to our cafe. He was a quiet and modest man.
If he was playing today he'd be earning millions.

Priceless but he d have to promote himself more as he was so self effacing

Still say, John Charles would be THE player of this generation.

Slower game then but more physical.

Charlo could take the stick metered out and play like a God.

Saw him play a number of times, met him on a couple of occasions and ,as you say, a very quiet and humble man.. A great player.

Fantastic local player......be a long time before we see his like again👍

Maybe when the conveyor belt from the academy starts tolling them out, we might find a gem.

Wish I could have seen him play.
