Went to school with his daughter - his nephew was one of my best mates

Nice bloke,  wouldn't have known he'd been a proper laker

He signed from Huddersfield as part of the Trevor Cherry deal didn't he?
Story goes that when we bid for Cherry their chairman would only sanction the deal if we took Ellam as well!

Jeanie

You'll have to excuse the spelling - not 100% it's like that but that was her name (if you get my drift)

Nice lass,  only really knew her through her cousin who i was good mates with

Re: Forgotten players of yesteryear

John Shaw goalie, my hazy memory is telling me both he and Glan Letheran played in the 1973 Uefa Cup tie at Hibs were a young Leeds side eliminated Hibs on Pens. I don't recall who started but I think the keeper got injured and the sub came on.

I also think John Shaw played in the aforementioned 0-4 1971 home defeat by Standard Liege in the inaugural Uefa Cup.

John Shaw went on to do alright at Bristol City.

Think he played in both games. I bet Letheran was shitting himself in Paris.

Jimmy Rimmer is the only English player to win European Cup Final medals with 2 different teams, or he was. Sub for Man u in `68 & seven minutes for Villa, before he got injured in `82.
