Reubin,good to hear from you,I still keep in close contact with Len Higginbotham, and see Harry and Jimmy every Saturday night in Garswood Labour Club.Come down for a pint one Saturday it would be great to see you.Do you still go in Goose Green Club,if so when, I will call round to see you. I have a daughter (45) and a son (42) with a grandson (18)next March. By the way I remember you to be more like Nobby Styles than Bobby Charlton, great days to look back on.
