All at Fleetwood Town are saddened to hear of the death of our former player Bob Baldwin at the weekend.

Bob made his Fleetwood debut on the opening day of the 1961-62 season at Chorley in the Lancashire Combination and over a six-year period made 222 first team appearances, scoring 31 goals. He appeared in the two famous FA Cup 1st Round games against Rochdale in November 1965, the first of which was played in front of what is still a record Highbury attendance of 6,150.

Bob left for Morecambe in the summer of 1967 where he played for nine seasons before his retirement in 1976. He famously captained the Shrimps to FA Trophy glory in 1974 after Dartford were beaten 2-1 at Wembley.

Our thoughts are with Bob’s family and friends at this very sad time.
