I had a mixed view on Peter as I was a life long West Brom Supporter. He was one of my favourite all time players after his wonderful 5 goals in the World Cup in Sweden helped N. Ireland to reach the W Finals. He also helped knock West Brom out of the cup one year when I was on a promise to go over from Belfast for the final. I had the great honour to invite him to my flat for dinner one evening After meeting him when he was coaching in Hong Kong. He and his wife were great company and he was a real gentleman . I hope he is still in good health living in Bournemouth .
My mother,nee Mary(Maisie) Henderson knew the family back in Newry. My Dad was a Villan so seeing Peter as a Villa legend made Mom very proud although Mom knew as much about Football as l do about nuclear physics. Keep going Supermac.
I lived in an apartment above Peters apartment in Kawait back in the mid 1970's and used to run into him.
He once complained about the banging I made one night when making beer and having to bash caps onto full bottles, all a bit primitive I know but I got on well with him.
One of my co-workers remarked he had never seen anybody with such muscular legs as Peter, 'they were like Calor Gas Bottles !!
As a kid, I used to spend my school holidays watching the team train, then wait outside for them to appear after showering. Peter would always sign autographs for the fans, and always had a smile on his face. I have vivid memories of him marauding down the left wing, cutting in, and unleashing a thunderous shot into the net. a great character, exciting to watch. Great memories. Thanks Peter.
