AKA The King of Spotland. (Or San Spotlando as it's known these days) Still Rochdales record goalscorer to this day. He played for all 3 Devon Clubs & then many seasons for the Dale. He also had a quiff that looked like the tide coming in. He is now retired in Plymouth I believe; any info gratefully accepted. TTFN Jimbo.
Yes, Reg is Rochdales's record goalscorer having scorerd 119 League goals between 1964 and 1973. Soccer-Files.com - Reg Jenkins shows his career record, and I've added him to the 70-71 pages, but if anyone has a picture or anything I'll gladly add it to the site.

Hi Bob, I am trying to get my hands on any pre 1970 topical times books or anything connected to topical times and i was hoping you would be the man who would know where i could get them or who to speak to. I would be very grateful if you could help as I am a keen collector of topical times books and Clyde F.C programmes and memorabilia. Many Thanks Richard Harrison
My advice as always to Richard is to look at the Auction sites. See Links: Commercial, Particularly useful for the Topical Times books is the fabulous site abebooks.com - the world's largest source of out-of-print books!, which takes out all the lottery of an Auction, but can be more expensive.

Hi I was
wondering if you could tell me what Les Green the former
Les left English football in 1970-71 season to play in South Africa. As a goalkeeper who was only 5 foot, 8 3/4 inches tall he always gave me hope that shorties like me could play in goal...
http--www.askgreaves.com- says that later Les went into Non-League football with Nuneaton Borough, Hinkley Town, Tamworth and Bedworth.

I would like to
find the name for the above subject. I have
Not a lot to do with 1970-71 Footballers this but I reckon she's after Sharron Davies, don't you ? David Wilkie and June Croft have been known to commentate, too, I think.
Jelle Vanhijfte has been corresponding maily about Clyde Best. Jelle published an article in the Dutch magazine 'Johan' of which more later. In the meantime here's a picture Jelle sent - not of Clyde Best ...

Philip Blundell writes
I have about 36 editions of charles buchans football monthly dating from 1964 to 1868. They are of great sentimental value to me and I dont think that this journal has ever been beaten. Consequently I would never sell them but I am intrigued as to their value. Any ideas? Most are in v good condition.
would refer you to Links: Commercial ... but if you ever want to
retire them to another good home ...
