Non football related one, but Mrs F was in Beverley Hills visiting a friend when this old guy came up to her and asked her where Bank of America was. She told him he was right by it, and off he walked.  Mrs F’s friend came out of a shop and said “what were you doing talking to Charlton Heston”!  Mrs F had no idea.

The next time she saw him was as a waxwork.E39AD4E7-7F6E-482D-A120-2428BF692111.thumb.jpeg.1000c53bcb40ff4352ca6892d48e36b2.jpeg

I played against Aaron Brown as a kid. He was good, I wasn’t. 

When growing up, Mike Gibson used to deliver the mail to @CyderInACan and my house. Our old man was star struck.

 

I can trump that, as I’ve had both Tom Ritchie and Gerry Sweeney deliver my mail!

So I guess I’m vaguely related to your best man and your tenuous claim is better than mine. I believe Vic ran a garage in Keynsham after he retired.

Loved reading all the tenuous claims on here. Great stuff.

He's the eldest of 2 brothers!

I took a piss next to Marlon Pack at Butlins in Bognor Regis. He was on his cousin’s stag do. 

We were both in fancy dress and I had to check twice...

I once said hello to Lorraine Kelly in a hotel corridor in Florida. 

I have Liz Hurley’s sister’s mobile number stored in my mobile. 

Yep. They’re both rubbish. Although unsurprisingly LH’s sister is quite fit.

Played against Gary Megson when his father Don was Gas manager. I think it was an under 16's game and they were called Parkway. Anyway I made sure I kicked him.

Went out with John Atyeos neice when I was at school.

As a kid I played in a sandpit with Gary Megson while his dad played in a celeb charity cricket match in Stoke Bishop....(only other celeb there i can remember was Precious McKenzie....)

I went to school with Steve Phillips, he was in the year below. We lived in the same village played footy at the local park and in his back yard.

Still remember the save he made when we played at St Johns as a 9 year old, you could tell then he was going to be decent.

Chris Honor was my ex boss and we didn’t talk about football once

I bought an office water dispenser off him and also was in the same team as him in 6 a side cricket at the County Ground for a Rob Newman testimonial thing.

Break times at junior school consisted of me, Keith Curle plus one other, take on the rest of the class (We always won)

Been on the piss in Newcastle with Dennis Smith & Paul Bracewell (Very strange night that was)

Known lots of lower league footballers well and through them have ended up drinking with 'bigger' names. John Aldridge and Mark Wright (likes a fight) spring to mind.

I was sat 2 rows behind Aldridge on the 3rd day of the 3rd test at Old Trafford a few years back.

He made a pint last pretty much all day.

I used to know Donnie Gillies when he worked as a salesman for Arthur David at Bishop Sutton. Years ago knew his late wife Anne, who worked for Chris Crowe in his estate agency on Red Lion Hill. Knowle. Knew Jantzen Derrick when he worked at Hodge and Co in Queen Square. Also used to have physio from Les Bardsley at his clinic in Greenhill Grove. Ashton.

I always disliked Aldridge after he ruffled Brian Laws hair when he scored an own goal in the replayed Hillsborough semi final, but he came across as a really nice bloke when I met him.

Funny that Miah, I went right off him too after he did that - it was so unnecessary.
