The one I knew had a sister called Lynne. He went to Turton School and would probably be about 54-55.

Small plump and full of himself?

Aye.

 

On the coaches, we'd pull up at a pub nice & early & SR would tell everyone to stay put while he went into the pub & showed the landlord a letter he'd got from another landlord saying what nice chaps we were & could we come in :) . Obviously, as soon as he got off everyone else just got off & dashed into the pub anyway.

 

To be fair to SR, the coaches were very good at a time when away travel was limited. There'd be lots of drinking time, food organised for on the way back & for me, the first coaches with toilets on them. One of them was a smart double decker for the first game at Bath which got stuck when it couldn't get under the railway arches, so we had to have a police escort miles out of Bath & back in on another road.

Think he fell out with the club and it must be nearly 25 years since I've seen hide or hair of him.

I was on that, stopped at a boozer near Stroud I think.

Nope. Ted's son is a personal friend of mine and of our good mate Lever Ender in LA. Duncan. He only had a sister.

 

Lost track of him when he went to Gaborone on a contract. Heard rumours he may now be a London White? Anyone know if there's any truth in this?
