Cyril Lawrence (1920-2020)

Pool's Oldest Surviving Player Passes Away

15 April 2020

Blackpool Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing of former player Cyril Lawrence at the age of 99.

On the verge of making a breakthrough into the Blackpool first-team when the country went to war in 1939, Cyril was an inside forward who went on to play for Rochdale and Wrexham later in his career. 

He was Blackpool's oldest surviving player and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends.
