Reaney, Paul I was 5 years old when we left Kingsway in Garforth, Leeds. We’d lived in a semi-detached bungalow lower down the street. Paul and his family (2 daughters I think), probably a little older than me, lived at the top of the cul-de-sac. I remember escaping our garden having been called for lunch and popping up the street to play with Paul’s children instead. I was made very welcome, though I don’t remember Paul being at home. My Dad was enormously proud to be a neighbour. Ironically for the last 23 years I have been living in the former home of Grenville Hair (whom Paul replaced) also Leeds United.

Reaney, Paul Had a very happy lunch with Paul at Butlins Grand Hotel back in the 80s, I worked there, Paul came to coach the kids, unfortunately or fortunately for me there were no kids, a great memory for me, such a lovely person.
