Anyone remember dave burgess? Used to turn up week after week without getting a game. Then one week John Summerfield suggested that if I had space to give him a game. So the following week we were missing a keeper, and someone (not sure who) said Dave could play in goal. We were playing business school away and dave managed to concede 7!!! I remember the first hitting the back of the net from 45 yards then Dave diving about 2 seconds after that. After conceding the 5th he went off his tits and started smacking the deck as if he'd just lost a family member. Truthfully only 5 or 6 were his fault, and he nearly crippled 3 of their players and himself. He did play for another of our sides after that and I heard he nearly crippled someone in that game as well. Wonder what happened to him after his Coeur 'career' came to an end????? Probably took up with the ultimate fighting championship!!!!

I remember going to watch a game that Dave played in goal. I think I was the only supporter with a car - because when Dave dived in at the feet of an onrushing attacker (and decided to use his face as a barrier to a set of studs) and split his lip open I took Dave to Southport & General Hospital for stitches - got home about 7.30 p.m and he thought I was his best mate.

I remember waiting at the school and wondering who the serial killer at the end of the wall was. Now I know.

No surprise you got on with him Doyley.

Funnily enough Andy, he just rang me ... so I gave him your email address and phone number.

Be afraid, be very afraid.
