I hope you have a little more information maybe a couple of pages extra for the George Purcell reaching 150 club goals in the book too,  Or will you be writing a book dedicated to that remarkable achievement.


Thanks Ann, Ian, Pete - and yes, George Purcell will get a special page - Remember - "He's Here, He's There, He's Every .... Where"

To clarify, 2 for me, 1 in my real (classified on forum) name and 2) mark wootton.

title suggestion from me should be something like “all the way to Wembley - the journey of the pub team from hornchurch” or something like that. Wembley at the start and no spoilers in the title even though we knew we would etc.

I took this pic of the one tackle wonder as we left the stadium, welcome to use it for book if you like. 


Thanks - it's a great photo - can you send me a copy please - AFCHTM@HOTMAIL.CO.UK 9C5560CB-D694-4557-8A6A-EB407436B856.thumb.jpeg.abdfb3c9446fe4fb3f6170a8e9aabd9c.jpeg
