Bio

Dickie Stobbart

Richard Paul Stobbart... he was 60 years old when he passed away on 9 November 1952... a three-time Dominion Cup winner (1923, 1928, 1931)... said to have been “deadly in front of goal with head or feet”... as noted in 1924 in an Australia program, Stobbart was “tricky with his feet and possesses a football head”... as noted in 1925 in the Vancouver Sun, “Stobbart is one of the most colourful players that ever laced on a shoe; he is a versatile box of tricks, a fine opportunist and not too much of an individualist. He is small, but this has never been a drawback. He has given his best services to Nanaimo and whether at inside left of left half back and has always been a bulwark”... wrote historian Colin Jose, he was “considered to be one of the finest halfbacks or inside forwards in Canadian soccer history”... in 1950, he was one of 16 footballers shortlisted in a Best in 50 Years poll by The Canadian Press... in 1950, his 1929 team Westminster Royals was named Canadian soccer’s “Best in 50 Years” in a poll by The Canadian Press... in 2012, was honoured by The Soccer Hall of Fame as one of “Canada Soccer’s Best XI in 50 Years: 1912-1962”...
