Stevenson, Byron I lived opposite Byron and as a young boy I looked up to him as I wanted to be a pro footballer. He always had time to play football with me when he visited his mum and dad in Llanelli. He had the nickname of 'Bone' and I guess this was because he was so tall and skinny. I always watched his games on TV if I could. I am sure that he will not be forgotten in his home town of Llanelli.
