Donald Ferguson was the manager of Weatherfield County FC who visited David Barlow at his work at Ajax Engineering in May 1961 to sign him up for the first team. Before going off to see him, David took some words of advice from Mr Robinson, the foreman, who pointed out that while there's glamour and excitement in football, there was a lot to be said for the longevity and security of his current job. David admitted he had much to weigh up.
