Peter Dyer

WE were sorry to hear of the death recently of former Pilgrim Peter Dyer, aged 80.

Peter kept goal for us in the 1955-56 Second Division season, making his debut as an 18-year-old in a 1-1 New Year’s Eve draw with Hull City. 

Signed from local side Oak Villa, Peter was brought in to fill a void by the retirement of Bill Shortt and Les Major but failed to fully establish himself in the team and moved on to Ilfracombe Town.

Our condolences are with Peter’s family and friends.
