His outside left was a boy called Andy Lynch who went on to play for Hearts and Celtic. Lourdes went on to win the under 15’s Scottish Cup.

I remember playing with John for Cotmanhay Utd in Ilkeston. One season he and I and Terry Haskins each scored 50 goals. He was a great footballer. His father and mine worked at Cossall colliery. If he receives this email, I hope he gets in touch with me.

I used to play for Ton & Gelli Boys Club where I played against him for about 7 years. I was his team mate when playing for The Rhondda boys clubs plus Rhondda & Pontypridd Schools. He was a great little player as far back as when he was about 10 short fast and strong.

SHAW, GARY

My dad went to school with Gary Shaw, they played in the same school team together. My dad was a pretty decent player too and was offered a contract at Kidderminster. One day back in about 1984 We knocked on to Gary Shaws parents house and was invited in. Gary was there in a plaster cast and on crutches. We chatted for a while and I remember him asking me what I wanted to do when I was older. I know my dad has caught up with him a few times since.

ROBERTS, BOBBY

In the early 70’s I wrote to our local Leics Mercury sports newspaper - 'The Buff’ saying how much I admired Bobby Roberts. My husband was reading the paper & commented that a reader had written in and it sounded just like me - 'oh, it is you!'. In the 90’s we ran our own business & I used to go to the bank at Anstey. Bobby Roberts used to go in the bookies there and one day he was in the bank. I said hello and after he’d gone I told the cashier it was Bobby Roberts. She didn’t know who he was, but I enlightened her.

I was a photographer for local papers covering Brentford and Fulham and Chelsea. Paul Prissy (goalkeeper) was a pal but I have a lovely memory of sitting on the touch line watching you play and a nice bloke as well.

Hi Les. You gave me a lift in your Ford Escort to Putney one evening as I was doing the photos for a local paper and have some great photos of you against Millwall at Craven Cottage and Steve Earle. Two great players and nice people.
