Same as Suddick’s Ghost - born in St Anne’s Hospital (Memorial Hospital?) 24 hours before we won the Cup. Lived with Mum & Dad in South Shore until Dad moved to Essex and then Coventry for work. Never lost my roots though and the smell of the sea when I come up for home games is such a tonic.

My early years living in a prefab on Forshaw Avenue , they were freezing in winter ,
That certainly toughened you up .

Great memories of the halcyon days of Blackpool.

Born at home ,Beechfield Avenue in 1950, near Stanley Park. Went to St John Vianneys but left for Manchester in 1958. Actually played football with Brian Kidd when I was 12. School was down the road from Maine Road, so watched Man City, Man Utd and Stockport County. Even cycled the 50 miles to watch the Pool, when Brown, Green and White played for them. Then left for Arundel, West Sussex in 1968 and lived in Worthing, Ferring and now Brighton. Two miles from the Amex stadium.....but always Tangerine.

"Right. I had to get up in the morning at ten o'clock at night half an hour before I went to bed, drink a cup of sulphuric acid, work twenty-nine hours a day down mill, and pay mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home, our Dad and our mother would kill us and dance about on our graves singing Hallelujah"
