Meetings Aplenty Of Old Friends
Saturday, June 23: Met up again with four former Wolves players - dating back more than 60 years - by attending the launch of Nigel Sims' autobiography at Villa Park. As well as the man himself, who made his Wanderers debut near the end of their FA Cup-winning season of 1948-49, the occasion was attended by Malcolm Finlayson, one of his goalkeeper successors at Molineux, Johnny Walker and Bobby Thomson. Johnny didn't let us down....he burst into song at one point during the q and a, as he is inclined to do! Also in attendance were five of Sims' ex-Villa team-mates, namely Alan Deakin, Harry Burrows, Ron Wylie, Jimmy McEwan and Jackie Sewell.
