Former Chelsea forward, Tommy Robson, is dead.
He passed on at the age of 76.
Chelsea announced his death in a statement on their official website on Friday.
The statement read: “Chelsea Football Club is saddened to learn of the passing at the age of 76 of Tommy Robson, our former player who was part of Tommy Docherty’s squad in the mid-1960s.
“Tyneside born, Robson is most known as a Peterborough United legend. He is the Posh’s record appearance maker and scored over a century of goals for them, but earlier he had spells at Northampton, Newcastle and between those two clubs, Chelsea whom he joined in November 1965 for a fee of £30,000.
“However he had the formidable challenge of competing with Bobby Tambling for a place in the side, and he moved onto Newcastle for £20,000 a year later, having made six starts and one substitute appearance, all in the 1965/66 campaign.
“Chelsea sends our deepest condolences to Tommy’s family and friends.”
