#AlbionAdvent: Ossie, Ossie, Ossie

13 December 2015

Day 13 of our Christmas Advent Calendar

Early 1967 and Albion were looking to find a goalkeeper after we’d had a couple of years of chopping and changing.

We settled on John Osborne who joined us from Chesterfield and who quickly became a fixture between the sticks.

A born worrier and a bag of nerves before games, Ossie was also a martyr to hand injuries and was known for having a “bionic” plastic knuckle.

Don’t worry, we didn’t go that far in our drive for accuracy. No children were harmed in the creation of this photograph…
