Some more information for your website
Brothers : Ian and Glynn Snodin - both played for Doncaster Rovers during the mid-Eighties before going their seperate ways, only to come together again at Scarborough in the late-90's, Ian as Captain and Glynn as Coach.Ian was then appointed manager of Doncaster Rovers and Glynn as his assistant. Glynn's son Lee is a trainee at the club and in a County Cup match, Glynn, Ian and Lee all played in the same match with Glynn and Lee both scoring. So in one match you had 2 brothers, father and son, uncle and nephew on the same team !!!
Hope this helps, Andrew Spiers
Well not quite this site's era but it's the sort of information I love to see, so thanks Andrew.
2) After spotting a link on Johnny Glover's site I wrote to thank him and Johnny replied ...
Nobby Stiles from www.collydrove.com
Nice to hear from you Bob
I reviewed about 70 sites in four months for the local Green Un and I think yours was the one I read the most of. Took me back to my childhood; cutting pictures out of Shoot magazine and sticking them all in a big book.
This is a bit cheeky I know but you couldn't put a link on your site to the e-book I've written could you ? 'Cauliflower Drove' is at www.collydrove.com and is a 70,000 word comedy murder mystery with quite a lot of football references (also a lot of jokes about the 70's)....anything to drum up a few more readers.
Johnny's site and on-line book are now listed on the Links page.
3) This one from Ron Ranagan sparked some interest ...
All of these wonderful sights devoted to George Best but none them tell me what NUMBER he wore?!
Can you tell me what number he wore when he played for Manchester United?
Well he debuted in a no.7 shirt, but throughout his Man U career, he darted about the numbers. In 1970-71 season he wore the numbers 7, 8 and 11. I would guess he wore the no.11 shirt the most at Man U.
I informed US Correspondant, Jim Ross, of the mail, and he said wrote
(Ian Corry (of the George Best Page) replied too, but I've lost the mail, now Ian, sorry !!!)
4) This mail made MY day ...
