The term ''unsung hero'' is often used in football for players who don't get the recognition they deserved. Sean Haslegrave was a prime example of this, he was a tenacious tackler who could play in a variety of positions. Tony Waddington loved having this type of player to call upon. Sean made about 100 appearances for Stoke City over a six year period and never let the club down. Sean, we thank you for your contribution to Stoke City, gone, but not forgotten. Sincere condolences to his family, friends, R.I.P Sean.
Very sad news. Think it was Seans excellent corner kick that Smithy got his head on, to score the only goal in the 5th round FA Cup replay again against Ipswich at Portman Road in 1971. Fondly remembered. Condolences to his family - such a lovely guy.
