Stan, 50 years young.
Stanley Matthews, football's first playing knight, sprints off the field after the First Division game for Stoke City against Fulham - his first competitive match for a year. He showed little sign of his 50 years during the game and delighted the crowd with his skill and the ease with which he set up a good goal for centre-forward Ritchie. Stoke won 3-1 and after the game Stan said: "It was grand to be back."
