hi alan . I have been a member of this site for quit a while. just came across your name . I used to race for Brixton way back . seeing your name reminded me I still owe you 1 shilling and sixpence . you lent it to me one Saturday so I could get home to Brixton ,as I lost my money at Alexandra rink . i think i know where you used to live but it was along time ago .i saw your message to john fry about your illness , like you i had a big op in 1996 , i had all plastic arteries fitted , age gets us all in the end. great site this don't you think . i am still intouch with a few of the Brixton lads now and then , i still have my dexters in the loft with two new sets of wheels . don't think they will be used again though . cheers john fuller

Welcome to my website Alan.
It's great to see yet another "oldie" on here. I am in contact with Adrian Wordsworth, Tony's son, on a regular basis. I'll let him know you have become our newest member. I have a few more DVD clips to put on here too soon of some of the older skaters. Last Sunday I met up with Graham Stead (if you know him). He is 84 now and very well.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at the old photos and reading some of the profiles. There are still many more I intend to do.
All the best
John Fry
