I know it's not the first team, but it's the nearest we have been.
Bully was a school mate of mine at Quarrydale, but more impressive was my old best mate from Primary school as well - Andy Marriott. He was England U16 Schoolboys keeper, played under Clough for Forest, including a League Cup Final (after being released by Arsenal as a 16/17 year old), and spent most of his career as Wrexham no. 1 and Sunderland no. 2. Quarrydale sent 2 players to Lilleshall that year, out of 24 in the whole of England, and another 2 years later - Craig Gaunt. Only Marriott really had a decent career though.
I played left back for Quarrydale, between Andy and Bully (Left Mid).
