  • I would like to pay a tribute to Chris Gilliland. In 1978 I played football for Harston Primary school, I was a couple of years younger than Mr Gilliland. Chris was at Melbourn Village College, and the school buses would arrive in Harston from MVC at about 4.30pm, around about the time that Harston Primary School football matches would kick off against other local schools. Chris was always the catalyst, it seemed (to me at least) that he was the cheerleader that made everything happen. As a 10 year old, when the “older kids” would arrive, and they would be cheering and shouting and encouraging vociferously in support of us, I felt that I was playing at Old Trafford or Anfield. The lift it gave us as a team was huge. Thank you Chris, for your huge contribution – it really did make the game more fun. BTW, I never did know Chris Gilliland, he was a few years above me and probably does not know who I am.

  • Jerry Coad is definitely top left. He looks about 11 years old so that would make the picture c 1978. I am pretty certain that bottom right is Chris Austin, Chris was a good football player and a devastating fast bowler at cricket. The lad to the left of the goalkeeper looks like Paul Hopwood, but I might be wrong. Paul was a terrible football player, but his girlfriend, Tanya, was absolutely beautiful.
