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.
