Re: John Gray AKA Hitchin John

So sad to hear of John's passing. Of all our friendly and approachable volunteers, John was perhaps the most knowledgeable, with an encyclopedic store of memories. Sincere condolences to Brian and family.

One year since Tuku passed away too soon. Listening to his music now and still being inspired by it.

Roy's Sock

Interesting article in the Needham Market programme. Has the sock been repatriated? Chatting to a regular terrace supporter at the abandoned Leiston game, he asked me if I'd been to Top Field before! (I've been coming here since 1969). I'd noticed him standing in the same area for many years, but he...
