In 1966 England won the Jules Rimet trophy.
The following year, a film called Goal! came out about the victory.
I remember the year because my father took me to see the film along with the film The tortoise and the hare http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0290897/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk1.
In this film, the hare is a sports car driven by a young lady, and the tortoise is a semi. The film documents their travels though Italy.
It was at this time, I met my father's secretary, Eunice Hinnett, from the start I didn't like her ways. The occasion was held at my father's offices, in Brislington, Bristol. Over the years, I didn't think of her, until one day when I was working at the Bristol Museum, I was told that her husband, Wilf, had been taken on. Several years later, I learned to my horror that she'd been taken on part-time too. The years may have passed but in 1992 she was still the same obnoxious, arrogant person I'd met in 1967.
One day, I was looking out of the window on the top floor, my sight was taken by the steel girders adjoining the museum to the building next door. After examining the faded writing embossed on the girders, I was able to decipher the name Cargo Fleet Ironworks, Middlesbrough. The same firm my father left when we moved to Bristol, in 1963. I never found out about the timing of the leaving, was it fortune or inside information? Within a year of us leaving, the works closed down.
As a final note, the now defunct Ayresome Park football ground, for many years the home of
