Tommy Docherty is one of the most memorable managers in British Footballing history. Managing sixteen different teams in less than thirty years, as a manager, the Doc was nothing if not controversial. Agnes Docherty stood by her husband through thick and thin but, in 1977, the famous Manchester United manager took things a step too far and, and was sacked in a blaze of publicity, his devoted wife was left to pick up the pieces of her life as he left her for another woman.
Agnes anf Tommy’s marriage was not without it’s challenges, but it truly was a tale of romance and love. Moving houses more often than most people have holidays, Agnes supported her husband with unrewarding loyalty.
