    Willie Carlin RIP

    Just read that Willie Carlin passed away yesterday. Played midfield alongside Don Masson in the 1970s Notts side, he was a small but 'combative' midfielder (aka dirty little so & so!!) The type of player we could do with now! RIP Willie

    I can just about remember him from my very earliest memories of ML, so must have been a real character. RIP & condolences.

    Did he come to us from Cardiff?

    RIP Willie, I remember you from my early days of Piedom.

    A player who certainly punched above his weight/size. If I remember he was only 5ft 4ins. My old man reckoned he was the only bloke who could get fouled in his own half and manage to dive as far as the oppo area.

    Very sad news to hear,I remember Willie playing, a really tough character, no rolling about on the ground when he was tackled, he jumped up and carried on. RIP.
