Did you get the red wine from Harry’s off-licence when he changed his retail?



No, but had the pleasure of chatting to him when he took over a BnB in Cleethorpes, what a gent....

As a keeper I remember my first pair....Sondico with dimply rubber on the fingers and palm...none of the finger braces or cushioning these new ones have...bought my first pair from Wainmans down freemo....ah, the memories...makes me all misty eyed, or is that the red wine???


I used to go in Harry’s shop a lot as a kid I always remember him being really nice to my mam and my nana who bless her was bonkers TBH.

He also got a relative of hours a signed program from the Liverpool cup tie as he couldn’t go due to illness.

I've never had a pair of Puma Tunis or had an epiphany but I once knew a lass with an epic f.... and a Pumis that smelt of Tuna.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

When you consider we had 3 of the best strikers in that league at the time, 2 who went on to be England Under 21 internationals.
We WERE spoilt.


I assume that the two Under 21 internationals you mention are Gary Lund & Paul Wilkinson but it was 3 or years later that they made their debuts so would have been nowhere near the first team squad in our Championship winning season

When they came along though I do remember them keeping Kev Drinkell out of the side in some games.... what a situation to have to deal with as Town manager where you had to leave one player out because we were spoilt for choice with such quality

It's got me wondering what happened to Kevin Kilmore and who he moved on to because he played a good part in our 79-80 promotion but maybe he just didn't have what it takes to play in the second tier as the others did

Kilmore linked up again with Geoge Kerr at Rotherham when he left us.

I had a feeling he went there Les but couldn't say for sure - thanks for confirming

Funny that he played no small part in the 79-80 season but often his contribution gets overlooked.... maybe because of his Scunny upbringing

Pretty sure he also played for Lincoln with Batch and Cummings in late eighties. Seem to recall he was at one time pub landlord in Louth but not sure if that’s still the case.

Could be wrong but wasn’t Kev Kilmore licensee on Wybers for a short while?

Thinking of strikers around this time, local ones included Jim Lumby in the mid-70s and then of course Terry Donovan. Tony Ford also played as striker for quite a long time and had a good goal scoring record in the position.

Kilmore was a surprise signing but at the time there was a lot of rumour about Kev Drinkell leaving so I suspect Kilmore was signed as insurance. The same might be said about Trevor Wymark who did a lot to make Paul Wilkinson into a proper striker.
