Tommy broke the record of previous holder Jimmy Scarth of Gillingham who held it for 15 years.

Our own Graham Leggat held the record for the fastest hat-trick in the English league, having scored three goals in three minutes in a 10–1 win for Fulham against Ipswich Town on 26 December 1963 until it was beaten by Sadie Mane then of Southampton in 2015.

I think you must be on a lucrative arrangement, as you seem to know when anyone whoever they are, passes away.
What I need to know is, will you be around to report when I keel over.

Thank goodness for that, I haven't slept a wink all night. We need to watch Fulham FC at least one more time at Wembley, before the day of reckoning.

Tommy was 18 when he set his record. How proud must he have been to still hold the record. RIP Tommy.
