    Stan I was talking about this game with my dad today. I was also there if I remember the game was a ‘Showbiz XI’ match, Tommy Steele, Des O’Connor being some of the players I think.
    I remember you also as I played school football for Warwick boys against you. I also remember ‘The Net’ but I have no recollection of what you sounded like!
    Did you go to the Avenues 61 final at Wembley? I went to that also and the semi final at White City which was against Hitchin Town if my memory serves my right.
