Club Saddened To Learn of 1953 FA Cup Winner's Passing

10 November 2019

November 2019 - Blackpool FC said goodbye to the last surviving member of our infamous 1953 FA Cup winning squad - Cyril Robinson.

Cyril Robinson, the last surviving member of Blackpool's 1953 FA Cup winning side, has sadly passed away.

The wing-half, who celebrated his 90th birthday earlier this year, signed for the club from Mansfield Town in 1951 and went on to make 27 appearances in tangerine.  

Our condolences go out to Cyril's wife Kathleen and all the family at this time.
