Ted Burgin had a long career in which he came close to top honours without ever quite making it. He played for England's B team, went on 2 FA tours and made an appearance for Rochdale in the 1962 League Cup Final. He was still playing the game when, aged nearly 40, he took over as player-manager of Glossop Town, and coached several other non-league teams.

Mike Franklin says: The first time I saw Ted play was at Bloomfield Road in either 1959 or 1960. I went with my uncle and aunt, i was 10 at the time. I played in goal for my school at the time and every time I made a save I said Ted Burgin to the rescue. Not suprisingly I got the nickname of Burgs which I kept right up to my early 20's.
