BARNWELL, John As well as being a talented mid-fielder at the Forest he is a really nice man. In the early 70’s in Nottingham he owned a local launderette and on more than one occasion he took pity on this newly married man and earned me a few extra brownie points by helping me to fold up out tumble dried washing. Happy days.
