The M..'s sister was a good friend of mine,she was harder than both the lads.Tommy duffy was a friend of my old fella and i knew him since i was a tot,he was a gentleman,unless you got on his wrong side! It was Alec who died,He mellowed a bit as he got older,i believe his brother was involved in a stabbing last year but i think he survived.

65-75?10 yrs?did they keep you back for being thick or was maths one of your poor subjects LOL.Getting back to Alec,he was a wasted soul,he was very intelligent,absolutely brilliant at conjuring tricks(best card cheat i knew).If he'd have been a bit softer he might have gone on to better things.I was never one of his bezzy mates but i used to have a drink with him and as i said he mellowed.We were on the door together at the northern union,i took the entrance money and he threw 'em out if it kicked off LOL

I spent a season or two playing darts for the N.U. circa 1977-80. Think a cockney had it at the time.

Look again Gilly 66- 75 You should've gone to Specsavers lol Working it out I was actually there 8 years so the dates are very dubious. I was 11 in Dec 66 so it might've been 67 - 75. I did do an extra year due to not getting enough O'level's to get in the 6th form first time around
