  • I was in the same first year at Farlingaye School as Geoff. For one year before I moved. Also in that same year were les Simmonds and Roger Osborne who also played for Town. I used to box both Les and Geoff. I was the better boxer but Geoff kept me out of the full County football team. In those days he was a centre forward.

  • While at Farlingaye Old Boys Cyril Lea offered him a trial with Town.

    Made his Ipswich debut at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea in the game with the goal that never was.

    The move to Manchester City doubled his wages to £100 a week, with £25 appearance money and £60 a point.

    Played for Connecticut Bicentennials (USA) with a debut loss to New York Cosmos when Pele took a box dive to con the referee!

  • I seem to remember that his mum was our lolly pop lady. Not sure what sort of player Geoff was, but his mum was a first class lolly pop lady. Saw me across foxhall road many times.

  • Hi James thats my dad Hayley(who?}Dodds is not related to us??? for my dad learning to be a gardner wrong again mate!!! My dad was in the building trade. NOW He is retired and lives in the Countryside. Regards Luke Hammond

  • I met someone related to Geoff during the week. Her name is Hayley Dodds and she told me that Geoff is now learning to be a gardener.

  • Hi, Liked the player connections you have lissted. Don`t forget Geoff Hammond played and managed Woodbridge Town in the 80`s. I should know as I was in goal and he would never stop shouting at me.
