Sad News. Condolences to his family and friends. My first Villa match was the opening game of the 1962-3 season. We beat West Ham 3-1 and 'Doog' got a couple. Really sorry to hear the news.

I have very vague memories of him on the Big Match. Makes feel a bit old. Top player of his day.

I remember him dishing out the trophies at a presentation evening we had when I was a kid. We bought him a bottle of whiskey on the day he got banned from driving. Oooops!! RIP Doog
