give you an idea of how far behind I am with this regular
feature, these emails date from late January ... but all
new emails I receive are usually answered within the week
so it would be great to hear from you.
An interesting article in the Sunday Times 26th
January 2003 referred to Pat Dunne being the brother
of Tony Dunne ex Manchester
and Eire footballer.
Who did Pat play for in the early sixties? Where is
I hope you can assist and thank you for your help.
Yes, I was aware of
him. His name appears on Sons
and Daughters at the
Brother's section of the page, and in 1970-71 season was
at Plymouth Argyle, (Click to see the Plymouth Argyle page, which I have added to the site in
response to Ken's email, but unfortunately he is not in
He was a goalkeeper that played 5 times for Ireland, and
was on the books of Everton from 1960-to 1964, when he
joined his brother, Tony at Man U. He played 45 games for
them in the next two season, before moving on to Plymouth
Argyle in 1967. The 70-71 season was his last in English
League football, having played 152 League games for
Ken later sent to
me the article he reffers to, and can now be read at Caught In Time
Hope everything is well. I have been keeping up with
your very informative and interesting site. (Thanks
-Bob) I am writing to you fairly late in the evening,
so apologies if my suggestion is either already on
the site or is incorrect; I think that Ken
Wagstaff (Hull) and David Wagstaff (Man
City, Wolves and Blackburn) were
I am not 100 % sure, but I do remember something
about them when I was a Kid, they were similar
looking, both had an extremely powerful shot and were
both born around the Manchester area, perhaps just
Also there was a player called Barry Wagstaff around
at the same sort of time, don't know if he was
related or not. Keep up the good work.
hear from you again, Andrew. Well I've looked up as best
I can. It seems you have spotted some Wagstaff brothers,
but different ones to the ones you query.
Barry Wagstaff (Reading) was brother to Tony Wagstaff.
Both Barry and Ken, played for Sheffield United and Reading, Barry later moved on to play
for Rotherham United, as well.
But, David and Ken
are not only not brothers, but actually
have different surnames, because David's is spelt
Wagstaffe (with an 'e').
I have some football pictures that were put out by
Typhoo Tea. I believe they are team pictures of the
first division from the fifties. Is there any
information you could give me on these cards?
Thanks, Tony Wills, Canada.
Well the pictures
are more likely from the early Sixties than Fifties.
People got them by collecting tokens and sending off for
them from packets of tea. In good condition they are
quite collectable, too. The best site to see similar
examples isNigel Mercer's site at http://cards.littleoak.com.au/l.
March 8th one of our co-workers will be 50. Of course
we have planned something for that day. Instead of an
Abraham, we want to dress up a puppet
like a fireman in a Feyenoord kit, that is, a
top or something as he appears to be a great
did not know this and we think it is quite funny, as
in this region we thought one would only find
Vitesse-fans. My question
therefore is: do you happen to have a shirt and a cap
(can be a second hand) to dress up this puppet ?
thank you in advance for the efforts and I eagerly
wait your answer.

wonders of being a webmaster is getting bizarre requests
such as this, which, even better, arrived in Dutch. Huge
thanks to Jelle Vanhijfte
for the translation. Though I don't have a supply of old
Feyenoord football shits to hand, reproduction 70s

Have only just
discovered your terrific site and as I delve into it
, it certaily helps me with my record updating on ex
league players which I am attempting to overhaul and
aim to produce a book on 'where are they now?'.
Alan Taylor's paying career did not end at Norwich he
spent 2 seasons as far as I know at Thetford town
scoring 15 goals in 37 games in 1989/90 the
following season he played 36 games but am unsure how
many goals he scored.
that piece of info helps your records if I find out
more as I go along I will let you know.
with the book, I very much look forward to seeing it .
See Alan Taylor
