16 I had Harry Pearce in mind but you found a homophone to solve it

02   A legend from the Hawthorns
04   Aces narrowly thwarted twice at Wimbledon
06   And extra sweat from down the coast (from 19)
14   Do this or lose it Tom
27   Little Thomas follows the straight and narrow
29   Nail, tack  .
46   Use him to saving getting lost in criminal territory

Aha! The extra hint in number 6 makes all the difference. I had been looking down the coast from Barrow.

Down from Lowestoft we find Russell Morphew.

14 correct

02   A legend from the Hawthorns (who plays there?)
04   Aces narrowly thwarted twice at Wimbledon (tennis knowledge needed)
27   Little Thomas follows the straight and narrow (in Middlesex)
29   Nail, tack  . (similar thought process to the Bill Ling solution needed)
46   Use him to saving getting lost in (his) criminal (sounding) territory
