Gordon Banks RIP

Posted on 6th Mar 2019 @ 1:35 PM

It is with great sadness that we have lost another one of our clients. Gordon started working with TOBN in 1995 our boss David received a phone call one day. “Hello is that David? My names Gordon Banks you might have heard of me I played football in the 1960’s and 1970’s. I wonder if you could get me some work Geoff Hurst says you’re getting him loads and I could do with a bit.” David told Gordon that as a boy in 1975 he queued up outside a sports shop for 2 hours to get his autograph and Gordon had to leave to go to another job so he never got the autograph. 2 days later David received a signed photo saying “sorry it’s a bit late”. That started our relationship with the great man there’s many stories we could tell of his wicked sense of humour. Sadly the last year he has been unable to do any jobs for us due to his illness and it is with great sadness but fond memories we say to Gordon “Rest in Peace”.
