SIR – I hoped in my lifetime never to hear the dreadful words, “The Queen is dead” – but of course these words have been immediately followed by “Long live the King.” Thus continuity and stability are assured. Let us give thanks to the late, beloved Queen Elizabeth II for all she did for the nation and the Commonwealth. But let us also look forward to the new reign, and offer King Charles III our heartfelt loyalty.

Colin Grainger, who has died aged 89, was a footballer who played more than 100 games for Sunderland in the 1950s, as well as seven times for England; “the Singing Winger”, as he was known, also had a career in music that led to him sharing a bill with The Beatles. “I was far more nervous before a gig than before a match,” he recalled. “In football, you’re one man of 11, but in singing, you’re one man of one.” The high point of his pop career came in June 1963, when he supported the Beatles.

Grainger received the same £50 fee as the Fab Four, who had agreed to the gig a few months before the start of their rise to global glory. Their money was, of course, split four ways, and Grainger wrote in his memoir: “I had to laugh when I remembered how I made four times for singing in one night what either John Lennon or Paul McCartney made.” Though he … [Read more...] about Colin Grainger, footballer known as ‘the Singing Winger’ who scored against Brazil and shared a bill with The Beatles – obituary
