I knew Jim Pye very well. We both went to Merton Bank School and then on to Parr Central. Jim's dad was a keen Bolton Wanderers fan and on occasions would take us both to the match. We were all there the match before the tragedy on the terraces where we usually stood, for some reason we could not go to that match. I lost touch with Jim when we both started work as apprentices him at Holman Mitchell and me at BICC. Met up again years later when he moved into Reeve Court Village. Sadly Jim died of Cancer last year.
