We must know each other lol. Went to same primary and secondary as Kieran and most of his mates were close mates of mine too.Yes St. Bernards has quite a few football connections. Jonny Giles was also at there at that time, he was at Oxford United and now at Chelmsford City in the National League. Kieran Hayes was in my class and he is now head of the academy at Oxford United.
No, not sure where Matty Cash went to school but wasn't St. Bernard's.My daughter is at St Bernard's with Matty Cash's sister, although I don't think he went there. Matty Cash (Forest) is, I believe, son of Stuart Cash (11 appearances on loan for Brentford 1990). It doesn't get more tenuous than this!
Michael Mancienne went to my son's school, St Mark's in Hounslow.
I can't think of anybody famous at all who went to my school. Sorry, I'm trying.
Ha correct. Tomlinscote or Collingwood? I was France Hill. Played against him in Sunday league a few times from memoryMark Peters was in the year below me. Never knew him but his reputation as a decent footballer was almost as well established as his reputation for being a t0sser...!
I remember Roy, I think he was 2 or 3 years above me at Wiseman, I was in the same year as his brother.Roy Cotton (two appearances in '70s) is my bruv-in-law. Him, my sister and I all went to Cardinal Wiseman
Big respect to Gerry Francis, (well apart from the Q.P.R. connection), professional footballer, England international and captain and still has the time to become a Deputy Head.!Gerry Francis attended Hogarth School in Chiswick. Not Bees obviously, but local. My dad met him once when he was deputy head there.
A true if somewhat sad story about my mate Micks mum. They lived in South Ealing. For the last 5 years of her life she had very bad dementia and was in a home. The only person she could remember clearly and would talk about was Peter Crouch - a lovely boy apparently. I'm not sure what the link to him was although he did live locally.He was also out drinking with my mother on the evening after he signed for Liverpool!
Collingwood. Yeah I played against him too, I played at a pretty low level, couldn't believe he was down there against me - and didn't look any better than the rest of us.Ha correct. Tomlinscote or Collingwood? I was France Hill. Played against him in Sunday league a few times from memory
