Remembering Gary


Today  'Tales from The Boundary' is dedicated to the memory of  the wonderful Gary Speed, it is hard to believe that it is a year since we lost a great and talented footballer and manager ( especially as he managed The Blades!).

Best known for having  played at Leeds ( The Mighty Whites) and Newcastle as well as representing his country, Wales. He went on to manage Sheffield United a team that he had also played for. As well as spells playing at Bolton  and Everton

His time as manager at Sheffield United was brief ( and he was a much respected manager there) as he went on to manage the National Team of Wales, a post he held until his untimely death.

A little known fact about Gary is that as a boy he was a talented cricketer!

RIP Gary and you are still missed.

Gary Speed  MBE
Spetember 8th 1969- 27th November 2011
