Young midfielder who was in the year below me at school
(Lawnswood in Leeds) - not that I ever saw him play of course. He
came into the Leeds side in the depths of the Division 2 slump and
never really established himself, and he was sold to Chesterfield
around deadline day in 1988.
Andy Jones says: I had the pleasure of being a good friend of
Nigel at Lawnswood School. We were always having a laugh and
distracting everyone! I think Nigel's thoughts throughout school
were just on football and playing at Leeds Utd. I can remember him
scoring a great goal for school one time. He hit the ball that hard
from 18 yards it nearly broke the net! We always used to mix with
the likes of Errol Johnson, Tony Butt, Alan McKenna. Errol and Tony
ended up playing professional rugby league. We all got on together
at school and we all loved playing sport. I think this is why we
didn't do too well in the class. From leaving school, i have only
seen Nigel once. It was a few years ago now (approx. 8yrs) and i
saw him all suited up in the Myrtle Pub in Meanwood. He was getting
married. I spoke to him briefly and wished him all the best. So, if
you ever see 'Mr McCredie's Pet' (the sports teacher-who i think is
still at Lawnswood)give Nigel my regards.....Andy Jones (Lawnswood
High School 1980-1984).
Dave Smith says: I am Nigel's boss at Royal Mail in Leeds 6, he
is currently a Postman delivering the nations mail in the woodhouse
area of the city.
