Bobby Robson's boot fail to sell at auction
Recently an old pair of Bobby Robson’s football boots failed to sell when they went under the hammer. The unworn pair of size two boots, believed to have been owned by the England, Barcelona and Newcastle United manager when he was a schoolcboy, did not reach the reserve price of £300 during the auction at Thomas Watson’s in Darlington. The boots were put up for sale by Sir Bobby’s childhood friend, Thomas Robson.
