Swain, Kenny I went to Ruffwood School and teacher training college with Kenny and was always one year ahead of him, consequently, I only got to know him when he joined the 6th form and our time at Shoreditch College. I remember him starring in quite a few comedic sketches both in school and at college. Kenny was obviously an excellent footballer, but perhaps more importantly he was a modest, funny nice guy. A typical Kirkby lad.

Swain, Kenny When Kenny was at Chelsea a good many years ago I had the privilege to play with him for a local Sunday league side for just one game. He wasn't supposed to play but we were short of players so he and a lad named as Satchel played who is now a Sir.

William doherty Kenny was a quality player and also a genuine and friendly gentleman
Have not seen him and his wife lilly for a long time.
