The first footballer I met Jim was one of my first heroes when i was a boy. He played for Bradford City in the mid 60s. After a match one day, me and my little brother were amazed to see him stood at a bus stop waiting to go home. We talked to him for half an hour. It's nearly half a century ago one but I can still remember the thrill of being in the company of a 'real' footballer. He was very friendly and wise and approachable. Can you imagine meeting a footballer at a bus stop these days? I will always remember Jim Rollo. Alan

My first hero I first saw Jimmy Rollo when I was 7 years old and he was goalkeeper for Oldham Athletic. More than 50 years later I still recall how much I was in awe of his agility and bravery. He was my first footballing hero. My condolences to his family. Thanks for the memories at Oldham Jimmy. Peter Berry
