Players you went to school with and what they were like in school

Recommended Posts

The Fashanu boys: Both top blokes...not shining academic stars...didn''t even stand out as footballers so much that you knew they would be high level pros. Toed the line.

Shame his career was cut short.

Of course, with the better fitness and dietary regimes these days he probably would have played for a few more years.........

Chris Sutton, Horsford Middle School 1983-4.  Always tall for his age, cocky, big headed but frankly deserved to be.  Key memory is of him (as a fourth year) walking round the playground on his knees saying in a squeaky voice "oh look, I''m a first year."

Danny Crow. He was a class act back then, but you could see the attitude problems that went on to ruin his career even at that age.

He could''ve done so much more with himself if he''d applied himself properly.

Used to regularly play against Matt Gill when younger. Was good, never dreamt I''d be paying to watch him though.

Been fortunate to play against some very good players, the most memorable was a fella called Joe Cole.

Not sure what happened to him but he always had promise haha

Obviously didn''t go to school with him, but when I was at school I spent a lot of time playing around Geoffrey Watlings estate.Always remember him as a kind, quiet man who liked to show off a little [:)]

[/quote]Nope! Definitely Stanley. He''d have been 95 now. Bernard is just a boy.........

Not football or NCFC related in any way, but I went to school with Matthew Hoggard, England Test cricket player. A top bloke, very clever (his dad''s a teacher) and a great athlete too

Went to school with an academy player. Seemed like a nice chap. Didn''t stand out from the crowd imo but then again. Probably never tried.
