I used to go to Home Park in the mid 70s and used chant Jim Furnell and sing along with the rest of the Crowd he was a great keeper.

I used to work at a garage called Castle Service Station near Crown Hill on the dual carriageway his wife Pam was the Secretary there so Jim was a regular visitor. Real nice guy.

I first met Bob as a student at MSG college of education 1970-74. Doing a BEd. He was quite a bloke being a blokes bloke and part of the degree was in physical education coupled with Biology.
