I went to Wilbraham and was a year or two younger than Eric, Clive and Eugene Wilson and of course Alex, but played with them a few times if they were a player short on the odd occasion and the games teacher needed to make up the 11 with someone from a year or two below. The school was a good supplier of talent for the blues in that era !
Yeah, it had a good run for a while. I played in the same team as Roger Palmer and Johnny Hart's youngest son Nigel who (through sheer determination) carved himself out a career in the lower leagues with Stockport, Lincoln and Chesterfield amongst others I think.

That's a relief. I thought I must be pissed because I didn't understand a word of it.
Great tackle and never a penalty! Just look at his guilty reaction. At least justice was done and the underdogs won the day.
I bet l wasn't the only one watching that clip and cheering when the pen was saved even though it was umpteen years ago.

And it wasn't a pen. Defender played the ball and Aldridge fell over him.
Should never have been a pen, but didnt stop the commentator announcing with some certainty "and thats a penalty" before backtracking to agree with Ian St John.
