I went to a treble dead 'ard Welsh school, and Lyndon was regarded as a poncy name , never did like it. Even the kids didn't know it was my proper name.






Know the feeling Trevor, I actually done my senior schooling in Hereford due to my parents moving there when I was ten years old for work however, I was from Merthyr Tydfil therefore, streetwise and could handle myself to the quips being thrown at me being the new boy in school and it was nothing like the school I had attended in RAF (Rough as F*ck) Merthyr Tydfil where all schools were as hard as they got. When I moved back to Wales in my teens to take up an apprenticeship in the Coal mines I had to go through it all again having obtained a bit of a farmers accent and being regarded amongst the miners as a bit of a ponce because I played semi professional football for Hereford United. Again my right hander was enough to help me out.

Football was regarded as a poncy sport in the valleys when I was there, we played rugby Winter and Summer at school.


I got quite good at it. At one time I was regarded  as one of the best hookers in the country ; hopeless in the towns and cities, but not bad in the country.

Scrum Half I played Trevor until Hereford Utd stopped me playing in case I got injured. I was signed at Hereford by the greatest football player ever to come out of Wales he was player/manager at the time.

Yes John Charles was brilliant, and made a huge impact abroad, which was no mean feat in those days.






Fantastic chap also Trevor, he took me and Kevin Sheedy for our first pint in the Market Tavern as it was then in Hereford. Sheedy went on to play for Everton and Ireland of course.


I also attended John Charles's memorial service at the Bryngwyn Hall in Swansea (a ticket only occasion) supplied by clubs that you would have played with or been managed by the great man. It was full of celebrity football players, I was sat next to Mark Hughes who was the the manager of Wales
