just wondering iff anyone has any tales or pictures of my hero william ralph. i met him a few times in the 50s. he was a lovely man i had his autograph a few times,but have lost them over the years.my granddad used to take me to see him. he would let me hold his medals and wear his caps. i oten think there should be a statue to the great man. no one would be more deserving.

To be fair he only played for tranmere for one season and although he had a great impact on that season there are more deserving players/managers! For me it has to be Johnny King who deserves a statue..... or Wilfred Owen

i dont think you grasp my point its for being a great ambassador for the town not because he played for the rovers.he was proud of being a birkonian as i am.

Not sure wether this is the best place...anyway here is a photo of my nan 3rd from right second row from bottom. This was Laird Street school, my nan was born in 1912 and Dixie Dean 1907, not sure he is on the picture but if he was this picture would be worth quite a lot.
