Former Town keeper Jack Parry has died at the age of 86. Parry made 154 appearances for the Blues between 1951 and 1955.
The Welshman joined Town from Swansea for £750 in August 1951 and left for Chelmsford City in July 1955. The Pontardawe-born keeper won a single Wales cap while with Swansea.
Parry, married to the late Mary with three daughters and several grandchildren, was a bricklayer both before and after his footballing career. In his later years he lived in London and then Chelmsford.
