Kinsey, Albert Albert came back to preseason training over weight, he had enjoyed his pint and his dominoes in Runcorn .John Neal the Wrexham manager made him wear a skin divers wet suit and train in the very hot clothes drying room to lose weight , Albert really struggled, we would look in and take the Mickey. The enforced treatment worked and my old mate went onto score many more goals. I look back on this period we had a great team full of characters

Kinsey, Albert Playing at Gresty Road in Crewe, I once saw a shot of his hit the bar with such force that it didn't touch the ground until it was back in the other half of the field.
