However, I’ve always wanted to be a football and the game started to get serious for me when I joined my first Sunday team. When we reported back for pre-season, I hadn’t changed my mind and within the opening couple of months of the campaign, I joined Coventry City with his blessing.

Young players back then were treated totally different to today and when I was an apprentice we would be cleaning the stands, changing rooms and cleaning the boots.

From my age group, 30 players were taken on by the club but only Dean Sturridge, Kevin Cooper, Mark Stallard and myself have gone on to make successful careers out of the game which goes to show just how competitive the game can be.

What a wonderful aunt and mom she was,wish had spent more time visiting.
