I could have everything wrong mike.Peter Garreuty lived very close to Jackie Kendrick on Darlington St, very close to Preston Arms.I lived in Shelmerdine St just off Harrogate St.Ithought Martin Atherton could be on.Brother of Eric.Its all interesting but confusing.Ithought the year could be 1961.What do you think Mike.Where did you live.

I remember you, Michael Benson. You introduced me to "World Soccer" magazine when I was about 12. I still read it. We used to play cricket in the street outside your house, near the embankment.

I was known by Anthony in those days, Michael. In the World Soccer magazine of yours I read there was a photo of a player from Deportivo Cali. 30 years later I used to watch them regularly when I lived in Cali, Colombia.
