Nottingham Forest are pleased to announce a permanent memorial has been created in honour of the club’s former player Tinsley Lindley.The Nottingham-born striker represented both Forest and England in the 1880s, scoring 85 goals for The Reds as well as 14 times in 13 appearances for his country. Mr Lindley was also the youngest player to represent the club at just 16 years of age.
A campaign started by Forest fan Ron Clarke began last year to raise money for the memorial, which was this afternoon proudly unveiled at Wilford Hill Cemetery with Forest’s current club captain Chris Cohen and vice-captain Andy Reid both in attendance.
Cohen said: “It has been great to come and show our respect for Mr Lindley this afternoon. Players like him helped the club develop the history we all treasure today.”
