  1. I went to Hazel Hurst Prep School, then Plains Road Primary from 1953 to 1957/8. Played football on Digby Ave. Only names I can remember are Roger Street, Tony Spencer, John Wardle, and the first girl I ever fancied Wendy Grimes hahaha. I then went to Gedling. And became a motor cycle fanatic........... and still am. Hahaha.

  5. Welcome Mr Cranson, You should go to the Rockers Reunion always the first weekend in August at the SHIP Skeggy. There are not many of us Aces left around, every Thursday night there is a Rockers night at the good old White Hart at Lenton. Just don't expect it to be like the old days. Although they do have a Aces room with all the 1960's and 70's photos all over the walls and memorabilia, and loads of Rockers with Ace Badgers on that were not even born when the Aces were going Grrrrrrrrrrr, soz grumpy old man kicking in. Cheers Paul Ayre.
