Cumbes, Jim I had the pleasure and enjoyment of playing full-back in front of Jim at Runcorn in the Cheshire League.

Cumbes, Jim My Dad ran the away supporters coaches and we regularly met the Villa players in the Lions club. Jim Cumbes was my hero and heartthrob and I was lucky enough to meet him on several occasions at the Lions club and on his radio show on which I won a competition to ask him a question live on his show. A lovely man xxxx
