  1. Just been flicking through his biography again. He was promised first team football at S6 by Big Jack. Picked up a hamstring injury and was replaced by Peter Shirtcliffe. Couldn't get in the team and after a move to Preston fell through - decided to retire to move into the pub trade 

     

    A great story in the book of how, after a fall-out in training at Cov - Garry Thompson challenged him to a fight outside. GT who was not a small fella backing down when he realised what size 'Big' Jim was. :)


  2. Here's my 'Lowest Ebb' XI (73-76). I think that, fit and firing, this team would have given D2 a decent run for its money. At very least, it wouldn't have been scrabbling around trying to avoid D4!
