John Ernest 'Ernie' THOMPSON, 1936-38

Tue May 05, 2015 3:07 pm

I would be most grateful if anyone can share information about John Ernest 'Ernie' Thompson, who played for Manchester United during 1936-38.

He was born 21 June 1909, at Newbiggin-by-Sea, Northumberland, and died 28 December 1985. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernie_Thompson_(footballer" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and http://www.bathcityfc.com/pastplayers_t.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

The reason for my interest is that he served with my grandfather in the Army during the war. I am interested to know what happened to Ernie after the war and possibly to make contact with his family.

Any assistance shall be greatly appreciated!
