Downs, Greg His Dad Bob ran a social club on the Holiday park where I owned an amusement business. We became good mates and it was the season they won the FA Cup. I went to a few games with Bob that season and met Greg a few times along with some of the other Coventry players and staff. Was a really nice guy who loved his football. If I remember he had a brother Howard who was a player/manager at non league level too.
