I played for the campers’ team against the camp staff at Prestatyn Holiday Camp in 1959 (I think). We lost 7-0. I played centre forward. The opposing centre half played me off the pitch. I hardly touched the ball. The next day I found him in a wooden hut handing out putting irons and golf balls on the putting course. I asked him who he played for and he replied “Blackburn Rovers”. I saw him a year or two later as he got out of the Tottenham coach at Old Trafford.
My name is now Sandra Bolton but when I first met Mike I was Sandra Shaw. I was a hairdresser in Blackburn at Geoffrey Rowlands and worked with Gwen Sowrey (Mikes first wife). In fact my husband and I used to babysit for them. Many happy memories.

We both remember Mike & his lovely wife Merilyn they used to spend a lot of time here in Marbella and they threw some lovely parties which we remember so well. They were the nicest couple ever. Such happy memories.

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.
Mike was treated for a injured ankle by my father Bobby Mcgregor at our home in Belfast. Heâ€™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!
Just met Mike England chatted about the old days at ysgol Gogarth , comes across as a decent guy.
Met Mike England at Chester Races on Wednesday may 9th.. great man, great footballer.
