Youth Player who played with Jimmy Greaves
Today I had the pleasure of talking with a youth player who at a guess was with the Chelsea youth team between 1957 and 1959 or maybe 1960. I had a lengthy conversation with him in a launderette in Solihull Lodge, Birmingham, UK. We were talking for a good 30 minutes or 45 minutes or so. I wish I asked for his name and the reason for this post is to find out if anyone knows who I'm referring to.
So can you help, here are the details off my memory which I can clearly recall. He was born and bred in Shirley, Birmingham UK, born in 1941, he mentioned he had the good fortune to meet and play with Sir Jimmy Greaves, he's been married for 42 years, 2 children, 1 working in the building trade and in his time he retired from the youth team due to a injury in his right knee ? (Sorry I'm not 100% sure about that fact). He's worked for Rover (left in 1998) done security work, worked at the Hippodrome and probably been a jack of all trades.
If any of this is ringing any bells to anyone please respect this post as I'm being honest, so honest replies only please thank you and thanks for any info on name or any info. Cheers. RavyDavy1971 (talk) 17:20, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
