England, Mike I used to watch Mike England play at Spurs and what a Centre Half he was, he won everything in the air was as hard as nails and a class act to boot. Great memories from the big man.

England, Mike Mike was treated for a injured ankle by my father Bobby Mcgregor at our home in Belfast. He’s also played football with the kids in the street. I remember he went with my dad, who was physio for Glentoran, to watch a Irish league game. It was announced over the ground that Mike Wales who plays for England was at the match - much to the amusement of the spectators. To add insult to injury, Mike sat on a nail and ripped his trousers!
