    EPITOME OF THE MODERN FOOTBALLER

    Ralph Coates is an old team-mate of mine, John. He's from Lambton and Hetton in Durham. We played in the same county team together along with Howard Kendall, Frank Spraggon, Wilson Hepplewhite who went to Arsenal but died at a young age and a few others'
    Ralph and Kendall could have signed for most any team in the country. Coates chose Burnley and Kendall Preston who he played for in the cup final the following year.
    Jesus, you think you feel old.
