IN MEMORY OF...

...THOSE TOWN SERVANTS WHO DIED ON THIS DAY

May 25

1952
Aged 64

Sammy SIMMS
Sammy was equally capable at both centre-forward and centre-half and signed for Town twice. He cost the club 40 in 1913 and then re-signed after the Great War, having been on Leicester's books but 'guested' for Swindon during the hostilities.

1916
Aged 35

Ted MURPHY
A regular on the left-wing in 1906/07 - he missed just two games - Ted signed up with the North Staffs Regiment when the War arrived and served in France. After suffering a gun shot wound to the head, he was shipped home and transferred to the King George Hospital in London, where he died.

Full career history for these and every other STFC player can be found in the new book SWINDON TOWN: THE REGISTER 1895-2015 - available now from our ON LINE SHOP
