I seem to remember the name 'Goodband', Andy. I can't picture him but he may have gone to Trent Bridge Senior Boys school when I was there.

I can fill a couple of gaps here which may help ,my wife lived with her Grandma for a time(17-21) at Livingstone Terr and then Walker Terr(when I met her) and so knew Alan Goodband and John Crofts,Michael they were at school same time as us but you would have problems as they were in the "c" stream and are a rags to riches story.

I believe they made a lot of money pulling down the "Medders" and then moved into the hotel game together with their wives,in fact when we returned to the UK 79/81 they owned the Manor Club in West Bridgford and we went there most Friday nights for a meal and the entertainment ,remember they had a nice Rolls Royce also...P.S. seem to remember John Crofts looked a little like you with blonde unruly hair.LOL....
