Lot Details
The following 8 lots relate to former footballer Dick Spence(1908—1983). Spence began his professional club career with Barnsley, before joining Chelsea in October 1934 for £5000. A tricky and nimble winger who could play on either flank, and also chipped in with important goals. He scored 19 goals in his debut season for the club - no Chelsea winger has scored more in a season. He played in 221 games for Chelsea, scoring 65 goals. He had the distinction of being Chelsea's oldest ever player, playing his final first-class match for the club against Bolton Wanderers in September 1947 at the age of 39 years, 57 days. Following that, he joined the Chelsea coaching staff, on which he remained for the next two decades. He was twice capped for England, against Austria and Belgium, both in 1936. The presence of Stanley Matthews in the side, along with other talented wingers, was a key factor in Spence not winning more England caps.
