CHATTERLEY, Lew Which schools in brum did you and lew go to wendy?

Chatterley, Lew As a kid being taken to the Villa by my uncle, Lew was my favourite player along with Charlie Aitken and Brian Godfrey. He was so versatile - defence, midfield, attack. Subconsciously, my footballing style at school was modelled on him in a number 10 shirt. Even now, despite our relegations back then, my favourite Villa kit is that of the mid 60s with the iconic Villa crest (BRING IT BACK!!) and I always but always imagine it as being worn by ..... Lew Chatterley!
