Famous Fulham Players: No 5 Tosh Chamberlain

This man could play a bit. Tosh Chamberlain 1954-65, 204 appearances, 64 goals Michael Parkinson once described Tosh Chamberlain as having been "created for Johnny Haynes to shout at". Haynes was a perfectionist; Chamberlain was not. Haynes would deliver the perfect pass, weighted, delicate, delicious; Chamberlain would belt it very, very hard. Sadly his shooting was not always accurate. Legend has it that he once hit a shot that flew over the Riverside Stand, landed in a barge and ended up seven miles down the river at Brentford. But Tosh could play a bit: he scored 64 Fulham goals in 204 action-packed appearances. And he also persuaded Johnny Haynes to join Fulham instead of Spurs, which turned out quite well for the club.
