Bobby Tambling's Shed Wall plaque unveiled

Bobby Tambling was at Stamford Bridge yesterday for the unveiling of his new plaque as our former striker joined a host of other Chelsea greats to be celebrated on the Shed Wall.  

Earlier this week Tambling won a poll of Chelsea supporters to choose a former player to be added to the wall. You can read an extensive interview with our former star scorer, including his memories of the Shed, here. 

Before we took on Slavia Prague yesterday a crowd gathered towards the west end of the wall for the unveiling. The host was Chris Hollins, son of Bobby's former team-mate John, and there were also words from chairman Bruce Buck and Tambling himself. He met supporters young and old, signing autographs and posing for photos. The plaque bears his preferred no.8 shirt and words on his glittering Chelsea career. 

And how fitting that within 26 minutes of last night's match the Shed End net had rippled four times with Chelsea goals!
