    Turned down approcahes from Ipswich & Norwich (to sign full time) in 1966 becuase of work commitments. Also wanted by Billy Wright at Arsenal (see newspaper cutting below) but Bury Town refused Arsenal permission to talk to him until the end of the season by which time Billy Wright had moved (also below are two pictures of Billy at Bury Town - front centre in both).
