“The minutes had been ticking away at Windsor and with the scores level at 2-2, I smacked home the winner. I’ll never forget it. The whole place went daft! My only regret is is that there weren’t video recorders in those days. I’d love to see that match and that goal. And I’d love to show it to my three sons.”
