He still thinks he is Johnny Dixon when he plays with his grandchildren! Johnny Dixon was his idol, I've got a good photo of my old man being awarded with a football trophy by JD.

Johnny Dixon , was a lovely man in his later years
When asked by junior football clubs to present trophys

Never heard of me but l will do it  O0
If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.

Hi Quackers I attended Elliot Street junior & senior school 1962 - 1968 l remember these  teachers Miss Parry,Miss Wakelin,Mr Price,Mr Evans,Mr Piggot & the great Mr Duggan (feared & respected by all)
I seem to recall a Barry Storer & l was in the same class as Lloyd Blackwood who I guess was Monica’s brother
My father worked behind the bar @ the Villa Tavern & the New Inns on Nechells Park Road
We lived in Trevor Street & later on Freeman Road (off Nechells Green) we later moved onto Cotterills Lane in 64 & strangely enough bought a house in Coleview Crescent Tile Cross by the White Hart before moving to Tamworth in 95
Pupils in my class were
Peter Bakewell,Micheal Birch,Steven Davies,Tom Kinghorne,Martin Phillips,John Thorne,Cyrill Liquourish,Edmund Crigheton,Lloyd Blackwood,Margaret Jones,Carole Matthews,Elaine Cotterill,Gillian Taylor
I have fond memories of my time there & I also remember Mount Street Park & playing football to all hours in the Old Ladies Park as we knew it
Happy Days
Btw my name is Tony Fox always know as Foxy
I also had brothers George & Ray who also went to the same schools
Be interested to hear from anyone who remembers me
