Strong, Les I was Les's hairdresser in Walton-on-Thames at the time of his testimonial against the England team just before the the World Cup, in the 80s. He told me to bring my kit and he would get me on as goalie. I went with my kit but Les was obviously having his little joke. Lots of happy days:) Great friend🙏

Strong, Les Hi,,, les ,,this might sound a little crazy random but I was going through my loft the other day and I stumbled across this letter from my best friend ever!!!! And I sat and read it found a couple of bits strange in it and as I got to the end I was laughing as it was for you not me,,, she must of been watching over me and thought I needed to laugh,, Suzanne has been gone such a long time and I have still miss her so much,, hope you're ok,, I know you won't remember me but I just found this site and thought I would tell you anyway x

Strong, Les Hi les Hope your keeping well and still busy. this is a bit of a blast from the past but my mum and dad Rene and Geoff holloway were very close to aunt nelly who lived years ago near Hampton court. And your brother tony worked at Scotland Yard. I was only about 10 when my dad took me to watch you play at Fulham in the late 70's. I have a son called Matthew(10) and daughter Ava (1). my boy Matthew asked me if I had anyone famous in our family and I thought of you ex Fulham captain having played with best,marsh and Moore. He would love to meet you. He likes football. Would love to catch up and go over old stories over a few drinks thanks rob holloway

Strong, Les Hi Les, don't know if you remember me from Battersea fun fair days? You never wanted to break into that 10 bob note when we worked behind the stalls for Dave. Seem to remember yourself, Terry Chensney and a few others having some fun. I would be interested to know if you ever broke into that 10 bob note. Hope all's well with you and yours. Best Wishes. A face from the past.
