Where Are They Now? - Footballers

Where Are They Now Book Covers

Have you ever wondered what happened to all of those players that you have seen come and go over the years? The heroes and the villains? The saints and the sinners? The stars that you talked about for years after they had retired and those you instantly forgot?

If so, Where Are They Now? is definitely for you!

Not all players end up running pubs or become TV pundits! It's no secret what Gary Lineker is up to these days but what about the many thousands of players who have slipped from public view? The first edition of "Where Are They Now?" uncovered some fascinating post football stories including the former Arsenal striker who became Iceland's Finance Minister; Millionaires; Bankrupts; Vicars; Comedians; Singers; a Phil Collins lookalike... and one or two publicans!

Johnny was a real hard man on the pitch. At half time Charley Hurley would say "Johnny, sort out number so and so". Johnny would reply "OK CHAS" and the request was always carried out.

This is for the St Mungo's lads. Tony and his wife Christine live in the Blackpool area. I am sure Tony would be happy to get re-aquainted with his old school pals. His address is as follows: 137 Hardhorn Road, Poulton Le Fylde, Lancashire, FY6 8ES. See Tony down at Blackpool FC, even drove him and Christine home a few weeks ago. Still one of the nicest humble guys you could ever meet and an absolute legend at Blackpool.

I was in the RAF at Kinloss with Johnny, who was playing with His there, and kept up with him after I joined the Edinburgh City Police. I used to meet him, after his footballing life, in Edinburgh when he became an insurance actuary there. I lost touch with him after he moved to live in Leicester. We are both in our 80's now, and hope he is well. My phone is 07713 154501.

Playing at Gresty Road in Crewe, I once saw a shot of his hit the bar with such force that it didn't touch the ground until it was back in the other half of the field.
