The many Torquay United fans who remember Clint Boulton with affection are being asked to raise a glass tomorrow night (Friday, January 22) at 7.30pm to celebrate his life.
All-rounder Boulton, who played 286 games from 1971-79, died recently at the age of 72 while playing golf near Newton Abbot.
Because of Covid-19 restrictions, Boulton’s family have decided to forgo a public funeral.
Meanwhile, Gary McGuire, who has also died at the age of 82, had a short - 34 games - but sweet Plainmoor career.
The former FA Amateur Cup winning goalkeeper helped United to win promotion in 1966 with a series of brilliant displays.
But his timing was out when, during an away stopover the following season, he crept back into United’s hotel around 6am, to meet devout manager Frank O’Farrell on his way out to early morning Mass!
McGuire left soon after to pursue a long banking career in the City.
