He was in the year above me. Always had a smile on his face

Don't think he said owt regarding tatics just shared experiences on of his big accasions with CAS probably 86 hull and Sheffield probably while he had a bit of time off after his BBC commitments

he has the club at heart met him once said he still supports CAS and that it's is boyhood club think his dad was involved with the club to if he's not commentating on the day he will probably be in crowd somewhere tapping his fingers
he only does that when he knows the camera's are on him ;) fairly sure when he was still at school he used to operate the old score board on railway end.
Yes he did 100% operate the scoreboard at Cas as I was at school with him and know this as a true fact. He was a very fast and nippy rugby player at school (where RU was the rugby....boo !!!)

He is Cas through and through .... his dad ran a Coal Delivery company and he lived only 2 or 3 streets away from Cas's rugby ground off Wheldon Lane !

I have his book at home so can answer some of the stuff about JK.

His dad was Herbert Kear, coal delivery man, who played a few games at full back for Cas 1st team

He did do the scoreboard with his older brother David.

He says the drumming is involuntary and generally happens when under stress.

He was coach of a school team in South Milford. (JK was deputy head. Athelstone I think the school is called)

He says that his dream job would be coach of Cas, and when he's no longer involved in rugby he'll be back at Cas as a ST holder.

It was Athelstan County Primary, as it was called then, at Sherburn In Elmet - he was my teacher/coach and the one who first took my best mate and me to a game. I have Mr Kear to thank for me being on the Cas rollercoaster! :lol:

You're obviously right derbys, how I managed to mix up South Milford and Sherburn is beyond me. Must be something to do with my age!!!

It's been beautiful in Suffolk today. Not a cloud in the sky. Makes me think about retiring to warmer climes.

A very productive working from home day....... 😏
