The forward line of my youth too. Their names were amongst others lovingly embroidered on my knitted blue and white scarf.

RIP Fred. 😢

I loved Fred Pickering. He was immense.
[www.prostatecanceruk.org] is a really useful link.

You can access information, speak to an advisor with expert information or email them. It’s a really good service, I think.

Great touch for a big centre forward, very classy.

Until about 1973, where there was a colour clash in the Cup, both teams changed colours. There were a couple of occasions when Vile borrowed our shirts. There’s colournfootage of us in white against Huddersfield in yellow.

When we played Chelsea in the thirties we both wore striped kits.

RIP big man.

RIP big Fred.

Just read this and brought a year to my eyes. The first centre forward i had the pleasure of watching.

I will raise a glass to the memories.

As a tribute to Fred Pickering I suggest we all go to the game on Tuesday with the waistband of our trousers rolled over
Southside Blue , not only keeping the blues alive but also singlehandedly saving the British Manufacturing Industry .

I was on the Tilton for that Chelsea F.A. Cup Match. Chelsea fans had got into the back of The Tilton throwing missiles. I got hit with a tin of baked beans.

The crowd was 52.000 for that game.

R.I.P. Fred. Many great memories.

Artist has had his trousers like that for the past 40 odd years.

RIP Fred , will always remember him after the Rotherham away game mid sixties.
The team coach pulled in somewhere on the way back and Fred refusing autographs with a fag in his gob.

Shocked - but he was still an idol.
Rosie ....Ohh Rosie ....I'd like to paint your knickers Blue and White !

A sad loss. We’re privileged to have Fred as one of our old boys. A prolific goal scorer with better than a 50% goals to games ratio in his 1st 7 pro seasons. And a hat trick on his England debut.
A great inspiration for one of our best ever chants.
He came so close to picking up an FA Cup winner’s medal with us.
RIP, Fred. You were special.

That’s a great shout. Roj. Let’s make it happen. Immediately after the PA announcement.
I cherish our heritage, and I’m so proud when the Tilton do, too. Sing it loud!
