Hilley, Dave I went to Queens Park Senior Secondary School the same time as David and seemingly I looked like him even some of the teachers thought the same. David was a prefect at the time and as I was 4years younger and the prefects had a place inside the turret and David used to let me dodge some classes.

Hilley, Dave Dave signed for scarborough at the end of his career, awsome, he seemed to seldom move out of a 20yrd radius but was so many moves ahead of everybody else and controlled the game. The way he played was an influence.
