O'Sullivan, Peter I was engaged to be married to Pete, when he left Manchester United. We moved down to Brighton together where we, unfortunately, didn't live happily ever after - his choice. Met up with him last year after 40 years; still the same old Pete, looked well and fit, but noticeably no curent wife of girlfriend. Very sad. xx

O'Sullivan, Peter I played with Peter for Clwyd and Conway under 15's. We played Cardiff boys in the Welsh School cup at Ninian Park - we were winning 1-0 at half time when Joe Armstrong, the United chief scout, called Busby and said they had to have Peter (he scored the goal) - we lost 1-4 and he went on to better things!!
