    Saw him outside ground at Fleetwood, looked fit as a butchers dog considering he must be 60 plus vat.

    Tom Lynn surprisingly doesn't post on here but he's fine and a grandad now.
    @Wakey ftm in Sussex will know about sheff

    You left out Billy Dimmock:D
    Still as daft as a brush.

    The Russells lived next door to me Lass'es Ma's house on one side and me Aunt on the other, Joe and Norm are still kicking about and the sisters too... Used to work with Norm once at Seaham..and if I recall Joe and Norm's dad & mam were invited to our wedding. Joe snr and the uncles all sang at my wedding. Bear, me and him had some great scraps playing footing on a Sunday morning. Sammy , I never knew him one to one but we always seemed to be where ever SAFC was. Tommy again with football and the pubs canny lad and then he teamed uo with Brian Leng on the short lived magazine. (still have the copies somewhere..T Other names ,I will know , but have forgotten with the passage of time but your right, everyone knew everyone. The Beehive was a great boozer and the last watering hole memory before setting out on the train for Wembley all of those years ago... great times and great memories. Cheers for that.

  10. Great days. Used to travel away with those lads. Few others not mentioned were Bob Ethridge (Eccles) who has sadly passed away now, Cal Brown and Geordie Davies, who had the best washed out double denim EVER!! :lol:
