Did Frank Blunstone have anything to do with a sports travel company called Bluntours? I did a few trips as a courier with them on tours to Holland and Belgium in the early seventies. I recall a Police team and a team from Islington called Angel Athletic.

Had a very happy lunch with Paul at Butlins Grand Hotel back in the 80s, I worked there, Paul came to coach the kids, unfortunately or fortunately for me there were no kids, a great memory for me, such a lovely person.

As an Evertonian, Jimmy was and still is my most favourite footballer ever. He was the player I wanted to be, he had the ability to take the game by the scruff of the neck and change it. Rest in peace big man, you gave me so much pleasure.

Such a hard tackler, not many people went past him! Our little crowd at the Bridge used to call him Jungle Juice!

Hi Alex. Congratulations on a successful career. Remember our time at Tooting and Mitcham juniors. If I remember correctly, one season I think you let in very few goals. A great boost to those in front of you. Great times would like to hear from you if you feel inclined.

I can recall many times during the 50s up at White Hart Lane watching the likes of Jim G and the team playing the midfield we had then was bloody fantastic Danny B, Dave M and of course Jim I. Back line of Peter Baker, Ron Henry and a great goal keeper Billy Brown. The forward line was not bad: Smithy Jimmy Cliff Jones Jim White and Medwin on the wing. Not bad first time cup and league double.

Thank you for all the lovely messages about my Dad. I will pass them on. He’s 83 now and still remembers details of every game at Bury and all the players. We had the pleasure of meeting up with George Jones yesterday who played at the same time as Dad and James Bentley who’s written books about the club and his Dad. They spent 3 hours reminiscing about the good old days at Gigg Lane and how much they loved it. It was wonderful listening to their stories. So different from the world of football today. It breaks Dads heart what’s happened to Bury football club.

He ran a boarding House for students in Ilford in 1966-7. Very proud of his West Ham days
