GEOFF BRADFORD may be at inside right or centre forward on the English FA team which plays here at Sabina Park on Wednesday night, May 18, Saturday night May 21 and Monday, May 23. Not even his Bristol Rovers manager, Bert Tann, knows his best position. But wherever Geoff plays he will be among the goals, they are his specialty especially hattricks. Last season he notched five. And for six of the nine-month season he was laid up with a serious knee injury. He returned for the last match for the season and scored three goals against Stoke. This proved his fitness and earned him a place in England's party that went to Switzerland last year for the World Cup. This season he is again Rovers' top scorer. Geoff was married in 1951. He had a 24-hour honeymoon before reporting back to soccer training.
