I was 3 years below you at school then.
So you were one of the Whitburn and Cleadon lot who attended Northlea?
How did that whole thing come about - Co Durham education department?
I remember playing in Ropery Walk school yard at about 13 and Garry rowell and Neil Richardson saw us playing footy there after school one night. they would have already been at Sunderland then but came over to play is. it was those two against about 6 of us and it was a good laugh - always remember that.
