Albert Sewell, MBE, RIP
Tributes have been pouring in after the passing of Albert Sewell MBE, who died aged 90 earlier this week. Albert was a life member of the FWA, the first employee and then director of Hayters sports agency and long-time editor of Chelsea's club programme. He was also the BBC's football statistics expert from 1968 until his retirement in 2005, often referred to by Match of the Day host Des Lynam as 'Our Albert'.
