I played against Steve Clarke's son, don't know his name, a few years back in the Amateur Combination League South, mainly old boys teams. They wore the Chelsea kit as their main kit. I don't specifically remember him as a footballer but they team were a bunch of thugs trying to intimidate, bully and fight their way through the game. A team of unsavoury scumbags.

I was half decent but nowhere as near as good as my dad thought I was. He knew a Fulham scout from his local pub and convinced him to come and watch me but didn't tell me.

Unfortunately, I went to a house party the night before, didn't stop drinking until about 5 hours before the game and had about 3 hours sleep. Was so drunk that I completely missed the ball on an attempted clearance, allowing the other team to score and then threw up at the side of the pitch at half-time before being subbed off. Something died within my dad that day.

 


We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

Back in the day I played against Wrighty on a couple of occasions, once us both scoring two goals a piece for our respective clubs in a 3-2 cup defeat for mine. They were a division below us at the time!
I also in my youth played for many years with ex Barnsley player and later manager Nicky Law in my local team from the Lewisham area, and I also played for the district, who were managed by Mr Pigden that Ian was surprised to see in a broadcast documentary having thought he had passed away.

Other players around my league were Paul Elliot ex Chelsea and Celtic, and a few later first team Millwall players who I played against at school level.

I had a trial with Blackburn Rovers as a 17 year old, but decided against a move into digs in Blackburn as I had just started dating my girlfriend who is now my wife. So all's well that ends well.

His son,also called Nicky is now on the books of Exeter signed by the current manager Matt Taylor.
Law has played under erstwhile Brad C manager Stuart McCall for 3 clubs.
