Probably 1969
In 1974, I found myself at uni in Dunedin, looking for a team to join. Bob McGuinn was running a stationery shop on the main drag. He seemed friendly. So I joined his team, Celtic. He was a great player and a better bloke. Not sure where he might be these days..

Not sure where to put this,should be of interest Bruce and Young Nick.
Rumour has it the man who was shot dead in Otahuhu the other day was Peter Rasmusson ex Otahuhu,and known as the minder of Mark Graham when he started out his senior football career.
Reading the press it looks like a a family incident?

Tank got signed from yawnion down the line, some rumours about club money and a wife ;) ... after rugby league he got sent to prison for something...complained to the staff that his boots were too small...told to take it or leave it...ended up having his toes amputated because of it.

He was a very good footballer though.
