I saw Kevin play at Bradford Park Avenue in 1963 other members of the team included the late Ronnie Bird and the veteran Jimmy Scoular. I Hope Kevin is keeping well.---------Regards Patrick.
Kevin was my postman when I lived in Darley Abbey. I had to get his autograph to prove to my mates that I wasn't making it up. Really nice guy too, our Kev!

Im from Derby and in the 90's used to play against Kevin when he played for Allestree Old Boys FC against my team Qualcast FC. He must have been in his mid-fifties and was extremely fit !
It was a pleasure playing with a footballer that I used to watch on the terraces.
Came to Vancouver Whitecaps in 1970's was dynamite on artificial turf, his ball control was a severe pain to the opposition, Won Soccer Bowl with 'Caps in 79
I emigrated to Australia in 1975. We lived in the same street as Kevin in Allestree. I went to school there. He was my favourite player when I was a lad and my father took me to see him play many times at the Baseball Ground in the early 70's.
I was born in Burton upon Trent in 1970 and my father used to take me to watch Derby County until we relocated to Torquay in Devon. Kevin was always my favourite player and I recall naming a teddy bear after him.
I SAW KEVIN GET 5 AGAINST BARNSLEY THE AVENUE WON 7-2
Great player. Great goals - but I love the Hector back-heel for the Charlie George goal in the Cup against Newcastle back in ?¢‚Ç¨Àú76.
