    Do you have any claim to fame? Been on TV, in the paper or on Google Earth (@St Badger ?) or an interview with the Telegraph (@Le Tissier's Laces ), crimewatch etc.

    Many years ago I was on TV being carried across the pitch on a stretcher at Selhurst Park when there was some grief in the stands and two of us were hit by lumps of concrete being thrown around. That was also in the local paper the next day. The other kid was really badly hurt and I think he lost an eye. I just got knocked out.

    Have you had any notable achievments? Can be anything. Climbed Everest, sporting, an award, academic, charity etc

    Learned to fly and part owned a Tiger Moth for a few years

    Do you know or have you met a famous person?

    While in Greenwich Village New York with my uncle John and his wife Christine in the late 60‘s we met Art Garfunkel and a couple of days later I sat next to Buffy Saint-Marie in a coffeehouse that turned out to be a favourite of the ‘in’ crowd.

    Have you been to a football ground outside of England (not Wales)? Which ones?

    Ibrox and Celtic in the 70’s (never again thanks very much)

    Have you seen Saints play abroad?

    Nope.

    Have you ever broken a bone? How did you do it?

    Broke both legs and collar bone while riding my Lambretta when a car hit me. Broke my nose when boxing. Fractured skull when the first wife brained me with a stone owl door stop.

    In what decade were you born? What decade would you have liked to be born?

    50’s, and to be honest I can’t think of a better time to be a teenager than in the 60‘s to discover music, girls, fashion and drugs.

    Which foreign country visited have you liked the most?

    Japan

    What is/was your occupation?

    Photographer/Printer. Originally an Electrician.

    Do you have a tattoo?

    Nope

    Anything else you would like to tell us that I've missed out? A funny story, something bad, sad or mad?

    One summer back in the late 60’s I got absolutely out of my head on Purple Haze LSD with my best mate and a couple of girls while at a party in Burridge.

    We somehow managed to get to Lee-On-Solent after being chased by space ships (car headlights?) and then by a very angry six foot pig (Hedgehog?).

    We stripped off and went for a swim to get away from them. We were rescued swimming towards the Isle of Wight and received a severe caution from the police and about a week later we were made to watch a film about the dangers of taking drugs. Ridiculously stupid film that made the girls giggle and then we all got thrown out of the police drug unit for being a nuisance.

    Tell us your secrets, it won't go any further than the internet. You might not get the chance again.

    I have a growing desire to kill Donald Trump.

    @Kaito Best one so far, some great stories there (I really have led a sheltered life). Excuse me for laughing but the story about your ex wife <laugh>.

    @Le Tissier's Laces I'm intrigued by your desert Island experience! Was that for a tv programme? In 2015 I applied to be on Bear Grylls The Island and got through to an interview in London but didn't make the final cut. I was never interested in the tv aspect of it, just the experience, and I figured that was the only way to really experience something like that. That programme also became less about average people learning to survive on a desert island and more about putting lots of 'interesting' charcters on the Island and hoping for drama.

    Oh god no! It was a volunteer programme for David Bellamy’s charity, Coral Cay. We were surveying the reef and marine ecosystem from an island called Cagdanao for the Philippine government.

    Funny you should mention Bear Grylls, as his peer Ray Mears did a programme from the island - he said it was the most remote place he’d ever been!

    We were away at a hotel in Drayton Manor a few years ago with friends when we all had too many wines in the hotel bar.
    When in the middle of the night I needed to answer the call of nature, being tipsy and not knowing where I was I open a door and went in.......or so I thought <doh>...so basically I am naked in the hallway on the 4th floor at 3 in the morning.
    It’s ok I thought the wife/then girlfriend will let me back in? Er no she is out for the count ;( answer was me getting the lift to reception to get a new key .......the funny this is I actually had to queue and wait my turn and act if though it was the most natural thing in the world.
    You can imagine the piss take at breakfast when all our friends found out .....my best man actually used this in his speech.

    Derek Jameson, ffs. Couldn't remember his name this morning when I was telling a colleague about his TV show. What's the chances of then finding out you rode an elephant with him?

    I once had to step over a drunk Oliver Reed to get into my local in Surrey. This was not as rare an occurrence as you might think.

    I took the piss out of Matty's nose after it was hit in a charity match on tv the night before, saw Terry Hurlock get headbutted in a nightclub, Shilts ejected by the bouncers paralytic drunk, Benny Hill carrying two heavy bags of shopping from Safeways back to his house in Shirley (he was famously tight and used to shave with the water he boiled his eggs with!). Saw Motty and Ray Stubbs comptemplating going into FYEO in the high street, dirty bastards! the day before we played Man Utd in the cup. Bobby Davro acting like a complete idiot in a wine bar, twat!
    When I was an apprentice joiner I delivered some kitchen units to Ted McDougall's house and stayed for a drink as he was a mate of the foreman's.
    Oh and Mick Channon came to our school and chatted and signed autographs as one of our teachers actually scouted him for Saints years before. and watched Ron Davies play tennis at the old courts on Weston Estate when I was about 9

    When Toby ( My Avatar ) was put to sleep , I wish I had allowed them to do it on my lap while he was Purring contentedly , In stead I put him in his cat box and they took him away to do it . Last memory is of him crying as they shut the door of that Van .

    Still cry about it now .

    So I'm sad and a total Wuss .
