McDowell, John Hi John. Hope you are well. You may or may not remember me but we played football together with either Clyde Best, Clive & John Charles, Steve Gill and some others at Langdon comprehensive, East Ham. (69 - 75) Was of course very happy times for me then, magical days watching you at Upton Park and then taking the mickey at school. I was known as Elfie then. Great days. My dad was scout leader to Tommy Taylor also. Love to hear from you.

McDowell, John Hi John, I hope you are well. I'm sure you won't remember but around 1970-71, we were neighbours. You lived opposite me in Plashet Grove (my family lived at 99 and my Mum was a good friend of Tina Moore). Every so often I would clean your white Capri for a few bob! Oh the old days! :)
