Just heard the very sad news of Ian Porterfield today.
Despite being only 7 at the time I remember every bit of the 73 final - where I was at time ( Butlins - Skegness). At the end of the day will never forget Montgomeries saves, Stokoe in his raincoat on the pitch, but above all Porterfield's goal - the simple commentary to announce it - the way his name was said quickly and on it's own "Porterfield" forever burned into my memory like millions others..
What a legacy to leave. "Porterfield!"
