I was 10 years old and playing football in the street; snotty nosed kids in dirty T-shirts and worn old shorts. Brian stood on the pavement alone, just watching with a lonely, longing look on his face. Nobody spoke to him, and he spoke to no one. He had come from a few streets away and wandered into our patch, an odd thing to do in those days – kids kept pretty much to the streets near home. He might just as well have wandered over from a foreign country. He went to the same school as me, but was in a different year. One of my teammates called out his name together with a dirty word and told him to ‘Get lost’. They put me in goal, the place where the least useful player could be safely stored, there being no skill required but to stand around a lot and (hopefully) block the ball anyway you could if it came your way.
