"I'm Sure Tom Missed A Penalty"

24 August 2015

Andy Scoffin pays tribute to club legend Tommy Lowry following his sad passing.

Crewe Alexandra’s public address announcer Andy Scoffin has paid his personal tribute to the great Tommy Lowry, who sadly passed away at the weekend. Lowry, who would have been 70 on Wednesday died suddenly on Saturday following a very short illness. He made a record breaking 481 appearances for the Railwaymen.

No2 was always Tommy Lowry. Andy said: “I first graced Gresty Road with my Dad as a 9 year-old back in 1968. For supporters of that era the eleven first team players even to this day just roll off the tongue.

“Right up until 1972, Tommy and club captain Peter Leigh were the full back pairing for almost every game.

  “I remember Tommy's testimonial match, which he Captained a Crewe XI against an all-star XI and I'm sure he missed a penalty!

“481 starts for the Railwaymen in all competitions is never likely to be surpassed so Tommy should stay in the Crewe Alexandra history books forever.”
