  • Russel still lives in Ipswich

  • Karl Cherrie Friday 27-04-2012

    Played with Russell at Moturoa Soccer Club (NZ) where he played after his stint at New Plymouth Old Boys. Funnily enough i had signed for Old Boys because of the lure of Playing along side Russell but he left and went home to England only to decide a little later he would return. I quickly transferred to Moturoa and together we helped Moturoa win promotion to the top regional league. It was a pleasure to play with Russell and a pleasure to become a friend of this true professional and gentlemen. I would love the opportunity to get his contact details and drop him a line to say hi.

  • We believe he joined Sudbury Town in 1989, but it may possibly have been Sudbury Wanderers (if anyone can confirm this we would be grateful).

    Once a lecturer at Suffolk College, Ipswich.

  • Russell came out to New Zealand in 1987 and played for my club (although was NP Old Boys then). Probably the best player to play for our club and surprised he never established himself in the UK. Nice bloke as well. When I moved back to England later that year I lost touch but would love to hear from Russell if anyone knows him. If A. Ross knows Tom (he was a toddler in NZ!) maybe pass this on.

  • Russell`s son Tom, plays for local Ipswich non-league side- Ransomes Sports in the Suffolk and Ipswich League
