I'm going back 37 years now, but in 1969 when I first started senior school, Johnny Allpress was captain of the school 1st XI (when school football was serious), so he was either in the fifth or sixth year at that time.
I kid you not, the way he played, he was the closest thing I have ever seen to Bobby Moore. He even resembled him to look at in his looks and the way he moved about on the pitch. As I remember, all of the top teams in London were looking at him very closely and I often wondered what happened to him until about 5 years ago when I realised he was at the FA.
He played in the same side as Les Reed and they were great mates. He was a massive influence on me as a player, as I wanted to be as good as both him and Mooro. When I eventually reached the fifth year I managed to do the same as him and wear the same shirt. Around that time, the school decided a new kit was needed and we were allowed to keep the old shirts. I've still got it today, short sleeved red V-veck with a white number 6 on the back!
If you speak to him again, ask him if he remembers it. I would love to send it on to him because he's the rightful owner!
What a player though!
