Chapman, Les Me and my mate used to gatecrash the odd Latics training session when we were about 15 on 'Little Wembley'. I was in goal and Ray Wilson urged Les on to cross it to my mate by shouting 'Chip it Chappie' to the amusement of all around. Also, who remembers that 'shimmie' by corner flag at the Rochdale Road End in around '66 when he was a mere youth?
