Great picture Look at those collars and hairstyles! - This photo looks like a casting session for a 70s ‘Austin Powers’ movie. I was with ‘Algy’ Pye the other week at a funeral –not seen him for twenty years – he’s living Leyland way, working as a teacher in Skem and has had a triple by-pass op – bet he wishes he still had that facial hair – I think this must have been the night young ‘Bucky’ lost his diet sheet, never to be found again!

The only time Wiggy ever won anything without having his good looks spoiled. Al won but his looks couldnt spoil. Bucky was breaking in Terry the Horses teeth.

A split second after this photo was took true to form Wigman dropped the trophys. Just like he dropped the ball every pass he got. Whats he doing with his gum shield in?
