If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
I first saw John Sissons play for 'England Youth' as they were known at Wembley in 1963, 2 group matches and the Final. I was 11 and l thought he was fantastic, brilliant. As l got older l realised he wasnt quite Fantastic, but he was very good, and quick. So good l nearly became a West Ham fan !! Not quite though.
Went to school at Mellow Lane in Hayes and I played for the school with John also U15s for Hayes Boys. We both grew up together from a young age and spent all our days playing football in the street. I can remember we bought a tandem to ride to school every day, great memories
I played against John Sissons when I was on the ground staff at Tottenham Hotspur aged 15/16, the game was at Spurs training ground at Cheshunt. In the chat prior to the start of the game I was told to keep control of Sissons... That was the last I saw of him, like lightening!!!!
Just want to say that John was my favorite ever West Ham player... I didnâ€™t see much of him during the 60â€™s / 70â€™s as Iâ€™m from Dublin.. Only got to see him the Goal / Shoot mags..But I went to see him in a friendly Match when he had signed for Sheffield Wednesday when they played in Dublin ... Happy Days...âš’âš’
Are we realated in any way? My dad's name was Ken Sissons and he loved West Ham
I played with John in the Colts from 1959. His knickname was 'chicken' as he had a distinct dislike of the physical side of the game ! My job during Tuesday and Thursday night training (I was still at school at the time ) was to kick him off the park at any and every opportunity in order to toughen him up !! Obviously didn't do him any harm !?!
