  1. Very sad to hear this news.
    Platty was a member of the second team that I broke into as a junior. A real character in a dressing room that was full of characters at that time – great memories – it was never dull!
    RIP Platty – my condolences to the family.

  4. So very sad to hear about Martins death. Played football ,cricket and drank many pints with him over the years. But not as many as most. . He was always willing to come and talk to me when I returned to Heywood. My thoughts are with the family at this sad time. Hope everyone is staying safe at Heywood at this very testing time.
