Parkin, Derek I remember calling on Derek at Longbenton while we were only 14 and playing for South Northumberland schoolboys, his ability was a lot higher than mine and his wonderful career shows that. we are talking 50 years ago where has the time gone

Parkin, Derek I was in Dereks class at School at Thomas Addison on Hailsham avenue and we were in the Football Team along with Dave Millar and Reg Whitehead in the early 60,s. Derek very often had a very strong tackle and was sharp and crisp and we all knew he was special. A great lad and I wish him and his family all the best.
