Holsgrove, John Ron chambers is correct- John was 10 years older than me and whilst not a fan of soccer i was so pleased to hear johns name as l was just about to turn the Telly off for the night l stayed up and watched the match- went to bed with the hump when John scored a own goal! Pleased to see he made a living from doing what he loved for so many years though

Holsgrove, John I remember John at Wolves. A very good player who would be worth a lot of money these days.

HOLSGROVE, John I remember John, when he was 16 or so - tall and slim - practicing with a tennis ball by kicking it against the side wall of the block of flats where he lived.
