I remember Colin and Tony, they were cousins. Colin lived in Pinewood Crescent and Tony lived in Maple Avenue Ince. I once saw them play at what was then Newtown British Legion.

Hi Tracy, Jaqueline was my best friend at school. We knew each other from about the age of four when we started at Ince Central. I just remember Tony and Christine because of her. I also remember Tony at Rose Bridge school when he used to battle his way through the lunch-time queue for my packets of crisps. Jaqueline used to say I was the fastest crisp-eater she'd ever seen. Unfortunately, I still love crisps and can eat them just as fast! Say hello for me. Thanks for the reply and I would love to hear from you again

I (formerly Jackson) remember Johnny and Tony also Angela but their older sister Sheila was more my age. She was a fabulous dancer. She danced on stage at Wigan Casino Soul Club (NOT alnighter) with Tony Burns wow that were great.
