Happy Birthday to my namesake!

Post by Duggywerefab » Fri May 28, 2021 12:22 am

Raising a glass to the real Bryan Douglas, the best player I ever saw wearing a Rovers' shirt, since 1957 anyway. Playing for a non-fashionable club he was not recognized as Britain's best but for a while between 1959 and say 1964, he most certainly was. That's why Spuds wanted him, to do for Smith, Greaves and Jones what he was doing for Dobing, McEvoy, Pickering, Vernon, Byrom, Harrison, Fergie, MacLeod and all our other heroes back then.

Happy Birthday Sir Dougie!

Happy birthday Mr Douglas!

I wasn’t a supporter in time to see him (or indeed alive), but from everything I’ve read he was some player.

Nice to hear it said from someone who was actually there! 🙂
