I see the last pub in Shard End The Trident is up for sale. Good luck with that.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Hi Sean Happy New Year to you to. Sorry to hear that about Johnny, I not sure if I knew him but I remember Dave Gleeson, Barry Smith. The Kinsellas. All the years I knew Dave i didn't know that he had a brother Billy. My dad played for the Trident domino team that would have been in the 70s.

Hi Mo Stevens , it's good to hear from a shard end girl , Pat Downes is my sister in law , there was a gang of us all hung around the chip shop in shard end Susan Hook Shirley White , I actually went out with Sandra Rhodes for a few years . The bailey bridge was also a meeting spot , racing the cars over so you didn't get your ears blown apart with the noise of the wooden battons. I actually went for a ride around shard end today on a nostalgic trip . There are certain roads that still seem to be the same as when we were kids. Hope  you are keeping well .


Sean if this is the same Sandra Rhodes you went out with she was my next door neighbour. She would have lived at No 30 Ownal Road on top of the shops. I must have seen you in the past if you went to her house. Sorry Sean I've got my Sanders mixed up. it was Sandra Barrett who lived next door but I did know a Sandra Rhodes.
