    Bobby Dazzler! He was great, loads of fun. Don't know if you still can but not too long ago you could make reservations for functions at his house, George Hall iir and you could play him, has fishing ponds as well.
    I also played John Part a handful of times as well as he was playing at Canadian Nationals at the same time as he was winning world championships, so obviously loads of us Canucks have played him.

    I used to work at the same place as some dude who's aunty lives a few doors from me. He went school with that girl who plays Tina in coronation Street. I went to a mates house once in Didsbury, Pete Hook lived a couple of doors away.

    I stand next to a lady at the Etihad that was best pals with Noel and Liam’s mum and they used to knock about with her son.

    I used to play 5 a side with Andy Gorham.

    I once had a conversation with Nicola Sturgeon

    I played rugby with Derek White the mutch capped Scottish International.

    Fred Else, goalie with (at the time) 3rd division Barrow son was in my class.

    Oh yes, I nearly forgot, I’m related to Andy Murray.
