Appleton, Colin My memory is me being an apprentice at Grimsby Town FC 1974-75/76 - you spent a lot of time trying to improve my game. There was times when you gave up your time on a Sunday and you would cross balls into me and I would strike towards goal and a lot went into the stands, you would say ‘never mind young man’ you keep striking!! Colin, thank you so much for great memories, I often think of you. Wish you well, wish I could see you one more time - I’m now 64 with a family of my own.
Thank you
