On This Day

April 18th
1960
447 and out
Watty Moore played the last of his then club record 447 league appearances in a disappointing home defeat to fellow-strugglers Carlisle United. Moore had made his debut as a centre-forward in 1948, but was a near ever-present in the heart of defence for most of the 1950s, captaining the club through some of its most memorable years.
