Another photo from Chester's blog yesterday. Who is it?

If I'm not mistaken this young man was later helped by Lennie Hepple, the lovely Maureen's dad.

Is it a very young Bobby Moore?

That's what I figured.

Maureen Hepple's mum and dad were champion ballroom dancers. Lennie, Maureen's father, later coached Bobby Moore, Pop Robson and several others on how to achieve better balance. Here's an article about the late Lennie:

Speaking of the lovely Maureen, there's a nice article written by Michael Parkinson published in Table Tennis News in 1974 entitled 'This isn't the game my bird played'.

All a matter of taste, of course, but however old it is, I'd sooner read Parky any day of the week than the daily dose of dreary dross served up in the Bolton News.

I heard a story, from an England team mate of Moore, that he used to iron his money.

I prefer to remember him for something else.
Anyway, who is this former goalie who was goalkeeping coach when Chester Barnes trained at Highbury?

Can't fathom this one. Is he Welsh?

I should know this one but I don't. Ex-Wales and Arsenal goalie, Jack Kelsey, came to mind but I'm not sure.

That's who I thought, but I didn't think he'd gone into coaching.

Photo of the day from Chester B is for Nuts racing experts.
Who is the dapper geezer on the left, the bespectacled gent on the right and the lovely horse in the middle? Not being a racing expert, I only recognise one but we may be talking about the winners enclosure at the Grand National here.

Struggled with this. Guy on the left has a look of David Coleman, but I'm pretty much stumped.

I see what you mean but the guy on the left is none other than our hero, Chester Barnes hisself. Looks quite the part, don't he?
My next question is, who has seen this film? If you haven't you've missed a treat.

I reckon it is.
So do I. Here are a few photos of Bolton's old haunts including the Pack Horse. How many remember Tognarellis? Busy place but not many blokes in there.

Anyone recognise the cool dude in the shades in Tiggis or the other guy who looks like he could be the Major in Fawlty Towers when a bit younger?

Bob (and anyone else who may not know) if you want to post a YouTube video rather than link to it, all you have to do is click on the little You Tube icon on the bar you see when you are writing your post and stick it in there instead and job done!

Easy when you know how.

Very Happy

As for Tognarellis, that was the place my parents used to take us for a treat to get ice cream milk shakes.

Used to be on the first floor above Burton's (or was it another tailors shop back then?) The entrance used to be off Market Street.

Happy days remember from a long time ago.

Thanks Sluffy. I've only just stopped using a quill pen and getting used to these new fangled things is proving a bit tricky. I have to get help from the grandkids.

It was above Burton's and the entrance, I think, was adjacent or near to Brown's Trimming Shop and a record shop. I remember Frankie Vaughan paying a visit when he was in his prime. This is Frankie with Marilyn Monroe round about that time.

Frankie was evacuated from Liverpool to Lancaster during the war and joined Lancaster Boys Club.I believe that's where he first performed and later, when he was successful, he set aside a week every year to fundraise for boys clubs.

One of the events was the Frankie Vaughan Pro-Celebrity Golf Tournament held every year at Hillside Golf Club, Southport. I played in it myself on a few occasions once partnering Wyn Davies and on others, Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hanson and Duncan McKenzie. Bill Beaumont took over as the Tournament's figurehead after Frankie.

Chester's posted a photo of Ray Reardon today but as its signed 'Ray Reardon' there doesn't seem a lot of point in asking who it is.
Instead here's a nice picture of Chester's two cats. Can you name them?

A bit unfortunate for Pong but it got me thinking about footballers with unfortunate names. Starting with Shittu and Dodoo, there's Dickov and Goodwillie, Windass and Arshavin, Fuchs and Kuntz and slightly before my time, former Scottish international, Bob Smellie. Any more?
