Tommy Sampy (1899 - 1978) - Sheffield United FC 

The following article was taken from The Sheffield Daily Telegraph 1925. I only came across it in January 201515 whilst I was researching a totally different matter. It struck a chord inasmuch as I was introduced to Tommy way back in the early 1970's. At the time I didn't know who he was, but a couple of old boys in the taproom certainly knew him from his foot-balling days. The consensus was that he was a mighty fine player in his time. Tommy was also remembered for a match he took no part in as a player - the 1925 F A Cup Final. Prior to the final he was replaced by Tommy Boyle and so was denied a winners medal. It was the last time the Blades won a major domestic trophy.
