Mellor Back in about 1980, when I was 15, me and a pal were 50p short of match entry which, at the time, was £1.60 each. I saw Peter Mellor walking to Fratton Park, so approached him, paid a weak compliment, and asked him to ‘loan’ me 50p. He didn’t have any change but asked me to walk to the shop in Frogmore Road with him, where he bought some sweets and gave me the 50p.

When I got home and told my Dad, he made me write a thank you letter with 50p sellotaped to it, which I did.

Wouldn’t happen these days sadly but a great memory.

Mellor, Peter You coached me at bollittery now IMG in 1997/98 as goalkeeper. I always tell my folks about you as a wonderful coach and showed me a lot about goalkeeping and skills that are involved. Using this opportunity to thank you and wish you all the best life can give. You can reach me @7138244921 and I'm married now with kids and have a job but not sports related.
