      Hi Ruth, I remember you.
      They are both well and living in Swansea. I came back 5 years ago and live in Newcastle NSW. My mother and father will be visiting this Xmas for 6 weeks.
      Hope all’s well and that the years have been kind to you.

    Worked with Herbie at the Swansea sorting office he was a brilliant player and such a lovely person to talk to in todays game he would be worth more than Gareth Bale

    Trying to catch up with Herbie – he transformed me from a fullback to a straight out centreback when he coached in Australia back in the 1970’s. Be great to hear from him.

      Hello Andy
      He returned to UK after 2 years in Australia. He played semi-pro for a few years whilst working in the Post Office. He retired about 10 years ago and is still in good health. He has returned to Aus a few times since to visit me, I live in Newcastle. We had a reunion in Wollongong a few years back where around 8-10 of the old team turned up to see him, Peter Beggs, Steve Davies, Daryl Glover to name but a few. Regards
      Simon Williams (Herbies son)
