Biography

Forgan left the Tigers in the 1954 close season and signed for York City, where he forged an eleven year career that elevated him to legendary status. He played a leading role in the Minstermen’s run to the FA Cup Semi Final in 1955 and ended up making nearly 400 appearances before joining Gainsborough Trinity in 1966. Tommy emigrated to Australia in 1974 where he worked as a bricklayer.
