Leslie, John John was a fantastic footballer who played in my team Brampton Villa for about a season who were in the Kent Amateur league during the mid 70's. He played for us for one season after missing many years playing due to a serious injury I think he had been at Charlton as a youngster but not sure why it didn't workout.I think he also completed a goldsmiths apprenticeship which may have interrupted his football, We won the league and Kent Cup but folded in the late 70's. He was a class above the rest of us.
