Boyer, Phil I grew up in West Bridgford and played many times with Phil on our local park. Always was a cut above everyone else and destined for the top.

Boyer, Phil Phil and his wife Sonia, used to live across the road from me in Christchurch, Dorset back when he played for Bournemouth and Southampton. I'd love to know how they are getting on now. Martin Benson
