William Balmer is gebore in Liverpool in 1877. Hy het plaaslike sokker gespeel vir Aintree Church en South Shore voordat hy by Everton aangesluit het. Hy maak sy debuut in die Football League teen West Bromwich Albion in November 1897.

Volgens Tony Matthews, die skrywer van Who's Who of Everton, was Balmer ''n verdediger teen 'n dikkerset' met 'n 'knarsgreep'. Hy het in albei agterspanne vir die klub gespeel.

Everton was 'n baie goeie span en het goed gevaar in die eerste afdeling van die Football League wat 4de (1897-98), 4de (1898-99), 7de (1900-01), 2de (1901-02), 3de (1903- 04) en 2de (1904-05).

Balmer het sy eerste en enigste internasionale ronde vir Engeland op 25 Februarie 1905 teen Ierland gewen. Die Engelse span het daardie dag ook Steve Bloomer, Richard Bond, Alex Leake, Charlie Roberts, Sam Wolstenholme en Vivian Woodward ingesluit.

Everton het in die seisoen 1905-1906 'n goeie bekerwedstryd behaal en Chesterfield Town (3-0), Bradford City (1-0), Sheffield Wednesday (4-3) en Liverpool (2-0) geklop. Everton het Newcastle United met 1-0 geklop in die FA Cup-eindstryd wat in Crystal Palace gespeel is. Balmer het 'n wennersmedalje gewen, maar was die daaropvolgende seisoen in die eindstryd van 1907 aan die verloorkant teen Sheffield Wednesday.

Balmer verlaat Everton in 1908. Gedurende sy tyd by die klub het hy in 331 wedstryde een doel aangeteken ('n strafskop teen Nottingham Forest). Balmer was tussen 1919-21 'n afrigter in Huddersfield Town.

William Balmer is in 1937 oorlede.


Billy en Bob: The Fabulous Balmer Brothers

William en Robert Balmer het in die beginjare van die 20ste eeu 'n vreesaanjaende en vrugbare, broederlike vennootskap in die agterlyn van Everton gevorm. Die keuse van William vir die nasionale span sou hom ook die eerste span van Scouse England maak.

Hulle was die seuns van James ('n timmerman en skrynwerker) en Martha. William Atherton is gebore op 29 Julie 1875 terwyl Robert op 28 November 1881 gevolg het. Die paar is beter bekend en Billy en Bob het grootgeword saam met hul broers en susters John (geb. 1874) en Mary (geb. 1877) die gesinshuis te Crosby Green 14, West Derby. Die seuns het as deelnemers opgelei, maar het ook 'n voetballoopbaan begin.

Brief aan John en Bill Balmer in 1896 van Everton FC (Dankie aan Brendan Connolly Collection)

Vir Billy sou die pad na Goodison nie direk wees nie. Nadat hy jeugvoetbal in die Aintree Church-span gespeel het, sou hy sy voetbalbedryf vir 'n seisoen, heelagter, oor die Ribble-riviermonding met South Shore speel (die uitrusting van Lancashire League wat met Blackpool FC saamgesmelt het). Everton se komitee onderteken Billy op 20 Maart 1896 oor lone van 20 per week. Hy is saam met sy ouer broer, John, wat in die voorry gespeel het. Die vroegste rekord van die seuns wat saam gespeel het, was op 9 Maart 1896 vir Everton -reserwes in Glossop North End.

John het die Everton -radar redelik vinnig afgelaai (hy verkies om te hardloop bo sokker) en konsentreer op die werk in die familie -skrynwerkery. Billy is egter op 6 November 1897 behou en vir die senior span gedebuteer, 'n gelykopuitslag van 2-2 op West Bromwich Albion. Daar is berig dat die werk van Muir, Barker en Balmer deeglik was. Die laasgenoemde speler het aansienlik verbeter namate die wedstryd aangegaan het. 'In sy tweede begin het hy groot lof toegeswaai:' Nietemin, briljant was Muir, Storrier en Balmer, wat af en toe swaar stormloop van die huisvoorspelers met groot koelte die hoof gebied het. behendigheid, en boonop was hul skopwerk altyd skoon en effektief. In Balmer het die klub 'n understudy van buitengewone verdienste. Vir 'n tweede kennismaking met League Football, kom die jong speler flitsend uit die beproewing, en daar moet in die toekoms geen bedrog wees as daar 'n vakature in die agterste afdeling sou ontstaan ​​nie '

Binne twee maande na die begin van die daaropvolgende seisoen, was Billy die eerste keuse op die agterspeler-'n posisie wat hy 'n dekade lank beklee het. Mettertyd word hy by die Everton -geledere aangesluit deur Bob - wat uit die span van Lancashire Combination League sou opkom. As 'n jeugdige het Bob drie jaar lank as heelagter vir Shaw Street College gespeel en daarna nog drie seisoene aan plaaslike junior sokker deelgeneem. Hy was 'n amateur -term by Everton vanaf die 1900/01 -seisoen, en vorder tot professionele status. 'N Duim korter as Billy en 'n klipaansteker, het Bob 'n bietjie minder staatgemaak op brawn, en meer op tydsberekeninge as sy ouer broer. Dit gesê, net soos die agterspeler se taak van die era, was albei vaardig om vleuels in hul spore te keer en die bal in die veld af te gooi. In 'n artikel uit Liverpool Echo uit 1925 wat hulle beskryf, vergelyk en kontrasteer hulle met die volgende:

'Daar was 'n stewige sekerheid oor die verdediging van die broers Balmer, Billy en Robert, wat beide die oog op die oog gesteek het en troos die beroemde volgelinge van die Everton -klub wat elke week hul plesier op die doelplekke geniet het. Robert, die jonger broer, was slanker as sy beroemde broer, maar namate hy volwasse en ontwikkel het in sy spel, was daar 'n afwerking en 'n bekwame diplomasie in sy styl wat hom as 'n speler van hulpbronne en onderneming kenmerk. Billy, aan die ander kant, was altyd beïndruk as een van die robuuste, steenmuurspelers wat nooit vrees of funk ken nie, en waarop op staatgemaak kan word, maar 'n beroep op hom is om reg te laat geskied aan homself en sy span ... Billy Balmer, bo -aan sy vorm, was 'n inspirerende speler om na te kyk. Hy was vinnig, sy metodes was oor die algemeen regverdig, sy volharding was uitstekend. '

Bob sou op 5 Januarie 1903 saam met Billy sy buiging vir die eerste span op die linksagter maak, saam met Billy, toe die Blues Middlesbrough met 3-0 verslaan het. Dit was amper 'n droom begin toe hy naby 'n vroeë draai 'n hoekskop bereik het. Die Liverpool Courier het gesê: 'Die Northerns val daarna aan, maar die broers Balmer het sterk verdedig, beide wat skop en pakwerk betref.'

Dit sou halfpad deur die 1904/05-seisoen wees toe Bob gereeld by die span ingebreek het en saam met sy broer saamgewerk het om Leigh Richmond Roose en/of Bill Scott in die Everton-doel te beskerm. Omdat Tom Booth gereeld weens 'n besering nie beskikbaar was nie, was Billy die hoof van die span vir die oorgrote meerderheid wedstryde en is hy beloon vir sy bestendigheid met 'n oproep vir Engeland. Dit was gelykop met 1-1 met Ierland wat op 5 Februarie 1905 in Ayresome Park opgevoer is (hy het voorheen die Football League teen die Scottish League in 1901 verteenwoordig). Dit sou sy enigste 'cap' wees, maar hy het homself in die geskiedenisboeke ingeskryf as die eerste plaaslik gebore Everton-speler wat sulke erkenning ontvang het. Die binnelandse seisoen sou in frustrasie eindig, omdat Everton in twee laaste nederlae in die laaste drie wedstryde deur Everton die titel beklink het.

Billy Balmer het sy Engelse pet in 1905 gedra (te danke aan Neil Caple Collection)

'N Jaar later kom nog 'n kans om silwerware te wen. Nadat hy Liverpool in die halfeindstryd van die FA Cup in 1906 geklop het, het die span voor die eindstryd van Liverpool vertrek om in die Crystal Palace-stadion opgevoer te word. Die Liverpool Courier berig:

Die Everton -spelers, oftewel die kontingent waaruit die elf gekies word, het Liverpool Dinsdag verlaat vir hul oefenkwartiere in Chingford, wat grens aan Epping Forest. Hulle het hul reis by Stafford onderbreek om die pekelbad daar te geniet, en volgens die jongste berigte was hierdie ervaring die beste. Die kontingent wat in beheer was van mnr. B. Kelly en mnr. E.A. Bainbridge (direkteure), het bestaan ​​uit: – Scott, W. Balmer, R. Balmer, Crelley, Hill, Booth, Abbott, Makepeace, Chadwick, Sharp, Bolton, Young, Settle, Hardman en Donnachie. In die Royal Forest Hotel, Chingford, het die mans gemaklike woonplekke gevind. Hulle bly in 'n pragtige distrik, en niks in die pad van moeilike opleiding word onderneem nie.

Daar is baie bespiegel oor wie die twee heelagter-slaapplekke sou beset saam met die Balmer-broers wat die mede-Scouser, Jack Crelley, uitdaag om te kies. Die koerier berig oor die opbou, wat min te doen gehad het met sokkeroefening:

Ek het pas die heer Cuff, die sekretaris van Everton, gesien en verneem dat die lede van die span almal gesond en gesond was. Hulle het baie baat gevind by hul verblyf in Chingford, wat meer 'n rustyd was as 'n periode van spesiale opleiding. Gholf op 'n baan van vier myl, stap te midde van 'n pragtige platteland en af ​​en toe naellope was die program. Daar is nie 'n voetbal geskop nie. Die manne sal die veld vars as verf neem, gretig vir die stryd en vol vertroue in oorwinning. Die presiese samestelling van die span sal eers in die oggend bepaal word, want daar is net twyfel, sê Cuff. Die jonger broer, Robert, het so sterk verbeter dat hy moontlik die pos kan vul.

Kort voor die afskop is bevestig dat die direkteure Bob in die guns van Crelley en sy ouer broer (wat die linker-agterspeler beset het) oor die hoof gesien het. In die dig verpakte 80 000 skare is die Liverpool Echo verslaggewer het 'n voormalige Toffee in Leigh Richmond Roose gewaar: 'Onder die vroeë voëls was die groot Roose, gretig en energiek soos altyd, en wat genoeg geheg was aan sy ou klub om sy hartlike wens vir hul sukses uit te spreek en vol vertroue in hul vermoë. '

Billy se keuse was geregverdig omdat hy 'n uitstekende verdedigingsvertoning gelewer het in 'n oorwinning van 1-0-Everton se eerste beker-triomf. Die Eggo prys hom: 'W. Balmer het waarskynlik nooit 'n beter wedstryd as Saterdag gespeel nie. Hy pak koel en hou 'n goeie lengte met sy punte. Hy was aan die einde baie bewerig, maar oor die algemeen was sy optrede van uitstaande karakter. '

Ondanks die feit dat daar na die eindstryd gekyk is, was daar 'n gedagtegang dat Bob 'n beter speler as Billy geword het. In Oktober van daardie jaar het die Lancashire Evening Post gevra: 'Is Robert Balmer 'n net so goeie rug as sy ouer en meer bekende broer? By die paar geleenthede wat ek die eerste keer gesien het, het hy my baie gunstig beïndruk, merkwaardig skoon met sy skopwerk en miskien eerder veiliger as William, wat geneig is om riskant te wees. keer. ’Ongeag, die broers was die voorkeur-agterspeler in die 1906/07-seisoen en het in Crystal Palace opgedaag toe Everton die FA Cup teen Sheffield Wednesday wou behou. In die geval het die Yorkshiremen 2-1 wenners uitgehaal en Balmer het nie 'n goeie middag geniet nie. Atletieknuus berig:

'Die Balmers was redelik diensbaar, maar ek dink nie hulle was 'n sterk span nie, en hulle was amper gelyk met die Woensdag -agterspelers. Dit gaan nie goed met William Balmer nie, en versagtende omstandighede kan namens hom aangespoor word, aangesien hy 'n knie het. Sy broer, Robert Balmer, was moontlik die beste van die twee. '

Na 'n verdere seisoen saam in die agterlyn, speel die broers en susters hul 65ste en laaste wedstryd saam in 'n nederlaag van die FA Cup teen Southampton op 11 Maart 1908. Aan die einde van die seisoen eindig Billy se eerste spanloopbaan met Everton op 331 kompeterende uitstappies ( hy het een doel aangeteken - 'n strafskop in 1899 - maar het in hierdie tyd agt eie doele afgestaan). Alhoewel hy nog by Everton geregistreer was, kon hy vir Croydon Common speel vir wie hy 3 FA Cup, 43 wedstryde in die Southern League oor twee seisoene sou speel. Teen 1911 was Billy weer op die tuisveld en werk hy as 'n koerant op 20 Mill Lane in West Derby. Hy teken daarna in 1912 vir Chester van die Lancashire -kombinasie, maar dit was 'n aborsiewe terugkeer, aangesien hy na net twee wedstryde te onbeweeglik was vir verdere keuse.

Bob het intussen voortgegaan om die Toffees met lof te bedien. In Oktober 1910 Atletieknuus het kommentaar gelewer oor sy keuse vir 'n wedstryd tussen Ierland en Ierland: 'Net soos sy broer, William, was die jonger Balmer een van die bestendigste agterspelers wat ooit die Everton -kleure aangetrek het en in ligakleure uitstekende diens gelewer. ' In dieselfde maand het hy, soos berig dat hy 'n afskop begin het, 'n wedstryd 'rinkvoetbal' beoordeel-gespeel op skaats in die toernooisaal. Hy verloor sy gereelde wegspringplek in die lente van 1911 en sukkel met 'n kniebesering, en maak sy 187ste en laaste optrede vir die Blues in April 1912. Hy bly geregistreer by Everton as speler - maar beskikbaar vir oordrag teen £ 300 - tot die vooraand van die (gekanselleerde) 1915/16 seisoen.

In April 1913 stel die direkteur van die klub, dr. Whitford, voor dat Bob 'n nie-spelende verbintenis aanbied deur Everton, maar die voorstel word deur ander raadslede afgestem. In plaas daarvan, in Augustus, is hy onderteken deur W.J. Sawyer vir South Liverpool FC. Bob se voormalige spanmaat, Alex 'Sandy' Young, was reeds op die boeke by Dingle Park. Vroeg in 1914 het die Liverpool Echo berig dat Bob op sy regterspeler vir sy nuwe klub uitdraai Die Sentraal in Walkden. Hy word beskryf as 'eenvoudig onverbeterlik.' In April 1915 is Bob herenig met die 1906-07-span vir 'n oorlogsorg-liefdadigheidswedstryd wat deur Jack Sharp gereël is teen 'n span boksers. Die joernalis van Echo berig oor die wedstryd wat £ 300 ingesamel het: 'Op heelagter het Bob Balmer hoofstad gespeel en weer gedeeltelik gewys omdat hy die bal in die spel gehou het en vir skoppe wat by hom spesialiseer, voordat hy 'n boek begin maak het. Nee, daardie soort boek, maar 'n versekeringsonderneming waarin ek hom alle sterkte toewens " (Let op dat sommige wedstrydverslae opteken - waarskynlik verkeerdelik dat dit Billy was, eerder as Bob wat in hierdie wedstryd gespeel het).

Op 25 November 1916 trou Bob met Blanche Farley, en daar is geen rekord dat hulle kinders gehad het nie. Dit lyk asof Bob in die liefde van die Everton -hiërargie gebly het omdat hy in 1926 'n gratis seisoenkaartjie deur die klub gekry het - 'n gebaar wat jare lank herhaal is. By die uitbreek van die oorlog, in 1939, woon hy saam met Blanche in Rosthwaiteweg 12 en werk as 'n dokter. Dit is op hierdie adres dat hy in Januarie 1959 op die ouderdom van nege en sewentig oorlede is.

Wat Billy betref, blyk dit dat hy alle bande met Everton verbreek het, hoewel hy 'n 'blou' was. Hy verloor sy eerste vrou, Alice, in 1916 en trou weer met Mary Thomas in 1918. Toe woon en werk hy in Huddersfield. Teen die begin van die twintigerjare was hy besig met afrigting in Huddersfield Town. In 1939 is Billy aangeteken as woonagtig in Kerkstraat 114, Huddersfield. Sy beroep word genoem as 'Joiner - ongeskik' terwyl Mary 'n 'wolbaarder' was. Hy is in Februarie 1961 op 85 -jarige ouderdom oorlede. Destyds het hy op 154 ​​Lowerhouses Lane in Huddersfield gewoon. Hy is op 15 Februarie in die All Hallow ’s Church, Almondbury, veras.

Dit is egter nie die einde van die Balmer -verhaal in Merseyside -sokkerkringe nie. John Balmer se seun, 'Jack' (John) –, die neef van Billy en Bob –, speel sokker in die middel-voorspeler terwyl hy aan die Liverpool Collegiate studeer. Hy vertel aan George Harrison vir syne Die onvergeetlike reeks in die Liverpool Echo in 1974 dat hy altyd bestem was om by Everton aan te sluit:

'My ooms was staatmakers van Everton ... ek en hulle pa is grootgemaak in die Everton -tradisie. Toe ek op 16 die graad as middelvoorspeler vir Liverpool Collegiate Old Boys behaal het, was Everton natuurlik die klub wat eerste gekom het. '

Jack het in 1933 op 17 -jarige ouderdom behoorlik op amateurvorms by die Toffees aangesluit en het verskeie kere vir die reservate verskyn. Een van hierdie uitstappies het hom in 'n aanval ontmoet met Bill "Dixie" Dean, wat na 'n besering op die terugspoor was. Jack was opgewonde, maar verstom, om in 'n tou te staan ​​met sy sport afgod. Dean het sy senuweeagtigheid raakgesien en gesê: 'Moenie bekommerd wees nie seun, ek lê een voor jou net voor rustyd' Getrou aan sy woord, gooi 'Dixie' die bal vyf minute in die pad in Jack se pad: 'Ek kon nie misloop nie. Dit het my wonderlik laat voel en 'n doel van my held gekry. 'Onthou hy. Toe Everton Jack op professionele vorms wou onderteken, het die gesprekke verbreek: 'Ek werk as 'n skrynwerker in my pa se boubedryf en Everton bied my slegs £ 5 aan om voltyds vir hulle te wees. Dit was vir my nie die moeite werd nie… Intussen het Jack Rouse my £ 8 per week aangebied met £ 6 somerloon vir Liverpool. Dus het ek onderteken, baie, moet ek byvoeg, tot die gesinsskande. Rooi was nie hul gunsteling kleur nie. ’

Die Derby -wedstryd – Jack Balmer en Tommy ‘T, G. ’ Jones

Nadat hy in September 1935 by Liverpool aangesluit het, het Jack byna onmiddellik sy eerste span gemaak. Hy word dikwels as 'n veteraan beskou as gevolg van voortydige bles, en 'n baie suksesvolle loopbaan as 'n slim binnevoorspeler. Gedurende die oorlogsjare het hy in die Kings Regiment gedien en soldate geleer om Bren -geweerdraers en jeeps naby Formby te bestuur, en teen die einde van die konflik is hy na Duitsland gestuur. Hy verdien in 1939 'n Engelse pet in die oorlog, en speel saam met Everton se Tommy Lawton. Na-oorlog, saam met Albert Stubbins, was hy die kaptein van Liverpool na die 1946/47 ligakampioenskap en het hy drie opeenvolgende driekuns in November 1946 aangeteken. die doelwit van 'n paar boef-seuns van Anfield wat uitsondering geneem het op sy intelligente, durf ek sê, Korintiese, benadering tot die spel. Hierdie ontevredenheid was lus vir 'n meer harum-scarum-styl van vorentoe speel, wat 'n afkeer van Jack was. Sy spel was meer subtiel: gebaseer op vaardigheid, kreatiwiteit en nous. Hy het aan George Harrison verduidelik: 'Hulle was geregtig op hul mening. Miskien het ek nie vir die crunch -tackle ingegaan nie, en dit het vir my onnodig gelyk. Selfs nou, as ek na Everton of Liverpool gaan kyk, of televisiewedstryde kyk, kry ek 'n rilling as ek die skoen sien ingaan. Ek was nooit 'n lafaard in die wedstryd nie, maar die soort aanpak was nooit my idee van sokker nie. '

Jack Balmer in die naoorlogse optrede vir Everton

Jack het sy stewels in 1953 opgehang, en nadat hy 'n tyd lank die jeugspelers van Liverpool afgerig en ondersoek het, konsentreer hy op die familieboubedryf - en geniet dit om gholf te speel in sy vrye tyd. Hy is skielik op Kersdag 1984, 68 jaar oud, oorlede na 'n hartaanval. Na 'n roudiens in die St Mary ’s Church in West Derby, is hy veras by Anfield Crematorium. Ter afsluiting van sy onderhoud met George Harrison in 1974, het hy gesê: 'Ek kan nie die wonderlike jare wat ek op Anfield gehad het, vergeet nie, selfs al het sommige van die Kop my nie so baie gehelp nie. En weet jy iets? Ek hou nog steeds van Everton! ’

Billy en Bob: The Fabulous Balmer Brothers

William en Robert Balmer het in die beginjare van die 20ste eeu 'n vreesaanjaende en vrugbare, broederlike vennootskap in die agterlyn van Everton gevorm. Die keuse van William vir die nasionale span sou hom ook die eerste span van Scouse England maak.

Die paar-beter bekend as Billy en Bob-word saam met hul broers en susters John (gebore 1874) en Mary (gebore 1877) groot by die gesinshuis op 14 Crosby Groen, West Derby. Die seuns het as deelnemers opgelei, maar het ook 'n voetballoopbaan begin.

Die vroegste rekord van die seuns wat saam gespeel het, was op 9 Maart 1896 vir Everton -reserwes in Glossop North End.

'N Jaar later kom nog 'n kans om silwerware te wen. Nadat hy Liverpool in die halfeindstryd van die FA Cup in 1906 geklop het, het die span voor die eindstryd van Liverpool vertrek om in die Crystal Palace-stadion opgevoer te word. Die Liverpool Courier berig:

Balmer het waarskynlik nooit 'n beter wedstryd as Saterdag gespeel nie. Hy pak koel en hou 'n goeie lengte met sy punte. Hy was aan die einde baie bewerig, maar oor die algemeen was sy vertoning van 'n uitmuntende karakter. '

Ondanks die feit dat daar na die eindstryd gekyk is, was daar 'n gedagtegang dat Bob 'n beter speler as Billy geword het. In Oktober van daardie jaar het die Lancashire Evening Post gevra: 'Is Robert Balmer net so 'n goeie rug as sy ouer en meer bekende broer? By die paar geleenthede wat ek die eerste keer gesien het, het hy my baie gunstig beïndruk, merkwaardig skoon met sy skopwerk en miskien eerder veiliger as William, wat soms geneig is om riskant te wees.'Die broers was in elk geval die voorkeur-agterspeler in die 1906-07-seisoen en het in Crystal Palace opgestel toe Everton die FA Cup teen Sheffield Wednesday wou behou. In die byeenkoms het die Yorkshiremen 2-1 wenners uitgehaal en Balmer het nie 'n goeie middag geniet nie. Atletieknuus berig:

'Die Balmers was redelik diensbaar, maar ek dink nie hulle was 'n sterk span nie, en hulle was amper gelyk met die Woensdag -agterspelers. Dit gaan nie goed met William Balmer nie, en versagtende omstandighede kan namens hom aangespoor word, aangesien hy 'n knie het. Sy broer, Robert Balmer, was moontlik die beste van die twee. '

Na 'n verdere seisoen saam in die agterlyn, speel die broers en susters hul 65ste en laaste wedstryd saam in 'n nederlaag van die FA Cup teen Southampton op 11 Maart 1908. Aan die einde van die seisoen eindig Billy se eerste spanloopbaan met Everton op 331 kompeterende wedstryde. uitstappies (hy het een doel aangeteken - 'n strafskop in 1899 - maar het in hierdie tyd agt eie doele afgestaan). Alhoewel hy nog by Everton geregistreer was, kon hy vir Croydon Common speel, vir wie hy drie FA Cup- en 43 Southern League -wedstryde oor twee seisoene sou speel. Teen 1911 was Billy weer op die tuisveld en werk hy as 'n koerant op 20 Mill Lane in West Derby. Hy teken daarna in 1912 vir Chester van die Lancashire -kombinasie, maar dit was 'n aborsiewe terugkeer, aangesien hy na net twee wedstryde te onbeweeglik was vir verdere keuse.

Bob het intussen voortgegaan om die Toffees met lof te bedien. In Oktober 1910, Atletieknuus het kommentaar gelewer oor sy keuse vir 'n wedstryd tussen Ierland en Ierland: 'Net soos sy broer, William, was die jonger Balmer een van die bestendigste agterspelers wat ooit die Everton -kleure aangetrek het en in ligakleure uitstekende diens gelewer. ' In dieselfde maand het hy, soos berig word, 'n wedstryd 'baanbalkbal', wat op skate in die toernooisaal gespeel word, beoordeel. Hy verloor sy gewone aanlegplek in die lente van 1911 en sukkel met 'n kniebesering, en maak sy 187ste en laaste optrede vir die Blues in April 1912. Hy bly geregistreer by Everton as speler - maar beskikbaar vir oordrag teen £ 300 -tot die vooraand van die (gekanselleerde) 1915-16-seisoen.

In April 1913 stel die direkteur van die klub, dr. Whitford, voor dat Bob 'n nie-spelende verbintenis deur Everton aanbied, maar die voorstel word deur ander raadslede afgestem. In plaas daarvan, in Augustus, is hy onderteken deur W.J. Sawyer vir South Liverpool FC. Bob se voormalige spanmaat, Alex 'Sandy' Young, was reeds op die boeke by Dingle Park. Vroeg in 1914 het die Liverpool Echo berig dat Bob op sy regterspeler vir sy nuwe klub uitdraai Die Sentraal in Walkden. Hy is beskryf as 'eenvoudig onverbeterlik'. In April 1915 is Bob herenig met die span van 1906-07 vir 'n liefdadigheidswedstryd in die oorlog wat deur Jack Sharp gereël is teen 'n span boksers. Die joernalis van Echo berig oor die wedstryd wat £ 300 ingesamel het: 'Op heelagter het Bob Balmer hoofstad gespeel en weer gedeeltelik gewys omdat hy die bal in die spel gehou het en vir skoppe wat by hom spesialiseer, voordat hy 'n boek begin maak het. Nee, nie die soort boek nie, maar 'n versekeringsonderneming waarin ek hom alle sterkte toewens " (Let wel: sommige wedstrydverslae meld - waarskynlik verkeerdelik - dat dit Billy was, eerder as Bob wat in hierdie wedstryd gespeel het.)

Op 25 November 1916 trou Bob met Blanche Farley, hulle het geen kinders saam gehad nie. Dit lyk asof Bob in die Everton -hiërargie se geneentheid gebly het omdat hy in 1926 'n gratis seisoenkaartjie deur die klub gekry het - 'n gebaar wat jare lank herhaal is. Teen die uitbreek van die Tweede Wêreldoorlog het die egpaar in Rosthwaiteweg 12 gewoon - naby Everton se Bellefield -oefenterrein, was Bob op die register van 1939 opgeteken as werker. Nadat hy deur Blanche oorlede is, is Bob op 9 Januarie 1959 op 79 -jarige ouderdom in die hospitaal oorlede. Hy is in die West Derby Cemetery begrawe.

Wat Billy betref, blyk dit dat hy alle bande met Everton verbreek het, hoewel hy 'n 'blou' was. Hy verloor sy eerste vrou, Alice, in 1916 en trou weer met Mary Thomas in 1918. Toe woon en werk hy in Huddersfield. Teen die begin van die twintigerjare was hy besig met afrigting in Huddersfield Town. In 1939, Billy was recorded as living at 114 Church Street, Huddersfield. His occupation was noted as “Joiner — incapacitated” whilst Mary was a ‘woollen burler'. He passed away in February 1961 at the age of 85. At the time, he was living at 154 Lowerhouses Lane in Huddersfield. He was cremated on 15 February at All Hallow's Church, Almondbury.

That is not the end of the Balmer story in Merseyside football circles, however. John Balmer's son, ‘Jack' (John) — the nephew of Billy and Bob — played football at centre-forward whilst studying at the Liverpool Collegiate. He recounted to George Harrison for his The Unforgettables series in the Liverpool Echo in 1974 that he was always destined to join Everton:

‘My uncles were Everton stalwarts… I was brought up in the Everton tradition by them and my father. When I was making the grade at 16 as centre-forward for Liverpool Collegiate Old Boys, Everton was obviously the club that came first.'

Jack duly joined the Toffees on amateur forms in 1933, aged 17, and appeared for the reserves on a number of occasions. One such outing saw him paired in attack with Bill “Dixie” Dean who was on the comeback trail after an injury. Jack was excited, but awestruck, to be lining up with his sporting idol. Dean spotted his nervousness and said, ‘Don't worry, son, I'll lay one on for you just before half-time.' True to his word, ‘Dixie' headed the ball into Jack's path five minutes for the break: ‘I couldn't miss. It made me feel great, getting a goal from my hero' he recalled. When Everton sought to sign Jack on professional forms, the talks broke down: ‘I was working as a joiner in my father's building business and Everton offered me only £5 to be on full time for them. It wasn't worth it to me… I was still on Everton's book as an amateur so I saw out the season for them. Meantime, Jack Rouse had been along to offer me £8 a week with £6 summer wages for Liverpool. So I signed, much, I should add, to the family shame. Red was not their favourite colour.'

Having joined Liverpool in September 1935, Jack made his first-team debut almost immediately. Often mistaken for a veteran due to premature balding, he carved out a highly-successful career as a clever inside-forward. During the war years, he served in the King's Regiment, teaching soldiers to drive Bren-gun carriers and Jeeps near Formby and, towards the end of the conflict, he was posted to Germany. He earned a wartime England cap in 1939, playing alongside Everton's Tommy Lawton. Post-war, paired with Albert Stubbins, he captained Liverpool to the 1946-47 League Championship and scored three consecutive hat-tricks in November 1946. In spite of these credentials and an impressive career strike rate, in the late 1940s he found himself a target of some Anfield ‘boo-boys' who took exception to his intelligent, dare I say, Corinthian, approach to the game. These malcontents craved a more harum-scarum style of forward-play which was an anathema to Jack. His game was more subtle: based on skill, creativity and nous. He explained to George Harrison: ‘They were entitled to their opinion. Maybe I didn't go in for the crunch tackle — it seemed unnecessary to me. Even now, when I go and watch Everton or Liverpool, or see television games, I get a shudder when I see the boot going in. I was never a coward at the game, but that kind of tackling was never my idea of football.'

Jack hung up his boots in 1953 and, after a period coaching Liverpool's youth players and scouting, he concentrated on the family building business — enjoying playing golf in his spare time. He passed away, suddenly, on Christmas Day 1984, at the age of 68 following a heart attack. After a funeral service at St Mary's Church in West Derby, he was cremated at Anfield Crematorium. Concluding his 1974 interview with George Harrison he said: ‘I cannot forget those great years I had at Anfield, even if some of the Kop didn't go for me all that much. And you know something? I still like Everton!'


William Balmer

<p>There are several references to Billy but he seems to haved lived with both his father and grand father at Billinge Rant and Shealey Brow farm. William and Ellen built the house at 210 Billinge Rd (pictured) after riding by one day in a pony and trap and deciding it was a nice place for a house - they kept farm animals on land at the back. I used to live there for 4 years after I was born<p>Agevaries on census but is probably between 1843 and 1848 - his death would put him at 46 but his wedding cert puts him around july 48. His age varies on all docs it seems . I also suspect they may have been to Ireland in the 1840's</p> <p>Interesting suspicion, his brother James seem to vary slightly, I suspect they are twins but only circumstantial evidence, eg on James wedding cert he puts his age 45 which would indicate birthdates end of May - Jul 1848</p> <p>tracing him is complex since there is another William Balmer with same grandparent and the wider family under James snr often resided at each others homes (close by)</p> <p>One of the Billys not sure which yet was in court at least twice and received 1 year in jail . they had quite a colourful past -) . Despite this both William and James left very sizeable wills (each worth approx 23000 to 170000 in 2019 money depending on how you measure inflation and income growth). Not bad for miners / farmers</p> <p>The gravestoneoriginally had a large iron cross but the church removed it when it became unsafe - source = local priest -) - only a hole now!</p> <p>Unfortunately some of their uncles seem untraceable to date . requires trip to Preston for Lancashire records for St Marys Birchley </p> <p> </p>

Exploring Engineering : An Introduction to Engineering and Design

Exploring Engineering, Fourth Edition: An Introduction to Engineering and Design, winner of a 2017 Textbook Excellence Award (Texty), presents the emerging challenges engineers face in a wide range of areas as they work to help improve our quality of life. In this classic textbook, the authors explain what engineers actually do, from the fundamental principles that form the basis of their work to the application of that knowledge within a structured design process. The text itself is organized into three parts: Lead-On, Minds-On, Hands-On. This organization allows the authors to give a basic introduction to engineering methods, then show the application of these principles and methods, and finally present a design challenge. This book is an ideal introduction for anyone interested in exploring the various fields of engineering and learning how engineers work to solve problems.

Exploring Engineering : An Introduction to Engineering and Design

Engineers solve problems, and work on emerging challenges in a wide range of areas important to improving quality of life areas like sustainable energy, access to clean water, and improved communications and health care technologies. Kosky et. al. explore the world of engineering by introducing the reader to what engineers do, the fundamental principles that form the basis of their work, and how they apply that knowledge within a structured design process. The three part organization of the text reinforces these areas, making this an ideal introduction for anyone interested in exploring the various fields of engineering and learning how engineers work to solve problems.

  • NEW: Additional discussions on what engineers do, and the distinctions among engineers, technicians, and managers (Chapter 1)
  • NEW: Re-organized and updated chapters in Part II to more closely align with specific engineering disciplines
  • NEW: New chapters on emerging fields of engineering, including Bioengineering and Green Energy Engineering
  • NEW: Discussions of Design for Six Sigma integrated into Part III on the design process
  • An Engineering Ethics Decision Matrix is introduced in Chapter 1 and used throughout the book to pose ethical challenges and explore ethical decision-making in an engineering context
  • Lists of "Top Engineering Achievements" and "Top Engineering Challenges" help put the material in context and show engineering as a vibrant discipline involved in solving societal problems

Table tennis powerhouse: South Bend club still thrives after championship past

SOUTH BEND — Dion Payne-Miller didn’t know much about the game when he and his brother first came to the South Bend Table Tennis Club.

“I had a mentor who brought me here,” he said of Margie Davis, the person who introduced him to the club — and the game.

Payne-Miller, now a senior at Adams High School, learned how to play table tennis, and he also learned about the history of the South Bend Table Tennis Club. That history goes back to 1937, when Hungarian immigrant John Varga founded the club, along with Weldon B. Hester, at the YMCA building in downtown South Bend. Hester was the secretary of boys programs at the Y.

Over the years, the club has seen its share of ups and downs. It went dormant from 1965 until the late 1970s, when a group of Indiana University South Bend students revived it.

World class coaches like Victor Tolkachev and Dan Seemiller restored the club’s reputation as a training ground for national and international players. Tolkachev coached the team for three years in the mid-1990s before returning to his native Latvia. Seemiller moved from Pittsburgh to South Bend and has served as coach since 1997. Mark Hazinski, one of Seemiller’s players, was a member of the 2004 Olympic team.

It’s not surprising that a lot of people don’t know about South Bend’s history as a table tennis powerhouse. That’s not because table tennis is unpopular.

But when most people think of table tennis, the first thing that comes to mind is ping-pong — the game played by generations of kids in basements and rec centers across America. Seemiller said ping-pong is a long way from table tennis.

“In America, millions of people play ping-pong, but not that many play competitive tennis,” He said. “The main difference is in the equipment.”

It’s hard to compare the game we played on those rickety tables to the aggressive, fast-paced game conducted by skilled players, featuring tricky spin serves, long volleys and amazing return shots.

Brad Balmer, one of the IUSB students who revived the club in the 1970s, said generations of players who developed and nurtured their skills at the South Bend Table Tennis Club can take credit for turning it into a national powerhouse. He’s telling the story of the club’s history on its website in an effort to preserve the past and encourage future players.

“I want the current members and the future members we are trying to recruit to know that there is a legacy and history behind this club,” said Balmer, who lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Players from the club went to a tournament in Grand Rapids in 1979, when Balmer met a man named Bill Maxwell. Maxwell was from South Bend and gave Balmer a detailed history of the club. That’s what inspired Balmer to collect and preserve the club’s history.

Over the years, Balmer connected with others who played for the club between 1937 and 1965, collecting photographs and other memorabilia. In the early 1990s, Balmer even managed to track down Hester, who had moved away from the area to work for a YMCA on the East Coast.

“We had a long conversation and then we started writing back and forth, and then he wrote down how the club started,” Balmer said. “He told me the whole story and then he wrote it down, and that was the start of getting some of the initial history.”

That history, along with current happenings at the club, can be found on www.southbendtabletennis.com. The site also features profiles on past championship players and videos of matches, including some from the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s.

The club holds open play on Sunday, while training nights for members of the junior table tennis team are held on Tuesday and Wednesday, with league play on Thursday. The junior program takes students from elementary grades up to high school.

“The basic idea as a coach is to give them the best fundamentals and then they can be the best they can be,” Seemiller said.

Payne-Miller was among a group of about 15 players gathered at The Beacon for league night last Thursday. The group also included Dan Cochran, whose sons, Andy, Gordy and Joey, made some of the club’s history. Joey twice won the championship for men under the age of 22.

Cochran’s sons started playing on a table purchased for the family.

“When they heard about the club, they were eager to get down there and start playing,” Cochran recalled.
