Barry 'Sammy' Davies used to knock around with Custer because he lived just around the corner. It and Them, the band formed by the said four, never really saw the light of day, but I often wonder what may have happened if they had worked on it and had more money.

Custer had a wonderful imagination even in those days and if they had been more musically minded they could have made their mark.

They were heady days in the mid sixties and although most folk were skint, fun was had by one and all.

I'll always remember when North Korea took Portugal to the brink during the 1966 World Cup, Custer, Jem Baggerly, Sammy and Co coming out of his house and chanting 'North Korea...North Korea...'

Still smile about it today.
