Hilley, Dave Hi Dave
You may remember me when Ian and you watched The Hi Hi s at Cathkin with your uncle Alec Hilley.
I now live near grandchildren in Cambridgeshire so I don’t know what happened to Thirds. Have disappeared again? Best wishes. Bob ( known as Robert in those far off days.)

Hilley, Dave Remember Dave in the Mount Florida Boys Brigade. He is 5 years older than me and I played in the same BB football team only because my age helped meet the overall age requirements of the team.

Hilley, Dave Mr Hilley was my PE Teacher at John Marley school. He ran a gymnastics team of which i was privileged to be a member. I then came in contact with him many years later and Mr Hilley was involved in youth work. He is a true gentleman and a huge inspiration. God bless you Mr Hilley

Hilley, Dave Looked like he was on tippy toes, dancing past people. Always seem to find space, never a hard hitter of the ball, but scored some good goals at Newcastle. One of my early toon heroes, I never thought Newcastle surrounded him with good enough players to get the best out of him.

Hilley, Dave I went to Queens Park Senior Secondary School the same time as David and seemingly I looked like him even some of the teachers thought the same. David was a prefect at the time and as I was 4years younger and the prefects had a place inside the turret and David used to let me dodge some classes.

Hilley, Dave Dave Hilley was my PE teacher at John Marley in the late 70s . He was a really nice chap who had time for everyone in his class especially the 'under-achievers', coming from being a top professional sportsman that shows his class.

Hilley, Dave Dave signed for scarborough at the end of his career, awsome, he seemed to seldom move out of a 20yrd radius but was so many moves ahead of everybody else and controlled the game. The way he played was an influence.

Hilley, Dave Davey hilley was an outstanding teacher and a great bloke his knowledge is vast in various subjects as well as sport and anyone who has had the pleasure of his company will tell you that he was an asset to anything he comes in contact with .He gave me my first golf lesson in john Marley and I've loved the game ever since .I wish him and his family good health and happiness and thanks for everything god bless
