Foulkes seems the more likely one then, 87 is a good age.

Footballers on the whole don''t tend to live a great age do they?

[quote user="Sports Desk Pete"]If Reg Foulkes is still alive - and have found no evidence that he isn''t - he''s 87.

Maybe the EDP should do an interview with him, being the oldest living player and his memories etc etc?

Wikipedia has Bernard Robinson as the oldest surviving player at the time of the centenary cellebrations in 2002 and there is no mention of his passing.

Anyone know if Bernard is still with us? He would be 98.

Bernard passed away about 3 years ago.The best person to ask who is the oldest remaining Canary would be Kevan Platt the Club secretary as he organised the 59 reunion.
