Updated: 10-09-18I remember having a beer with Terry Hennesey, Forest and Wales captain about Peter's skills and comparing him with Gordon Banks. I agreed with Terry when he said that Gordon dominated the penalty area whereas Peter was the best goal line keeper going. He made some tremendous stops, his reactions were lightening.
Updated: 10-09-18Clive was a friend of my player coach at Tooting Gladbec in the Sunday League. He came to watch us in the final at Dulwich Hamlet. We lost in the final and he gave us lots of good advice after the game. I remember thinking we could have done with that advice before the game. He was nice about it though.

Updated: 10-09-18The "Goal" he Scored Against Rochdale 1st Game of the season. Great Shot from Outside the Box which nestled oyutside of the keepers left hand post. Everyone in the ground watch as their keeper collected the ball from the outside of his post and placed down for a goal-kick. Then the referee comes striding in we all thought to say somthing to the keeper, but no he grabs the ball and takes it to the centre having awarded Reading a goal. THE GROUNDS FALL SILENT then everyone is in fits of laughter for the rest of the game which finishes 1-0

Updated: 10-09-18Hard-core Royals fan from 1963-1998. Privileged to meet Gilksey when he visited with a view to buying my house in 2003, but we decided the back garden wasn't quite long enough for him to get up to full pace! Always potential excitement when he was playing due to his exceptional pace, so thanks for the memories Gilksey. My second all-time favourite royal (after Robin Friday!)
