What's the most interesting thing you ever did at Priory?
I worked for a couple of months at the Port Royal excavation with Phil Maize the archaeologist there. I saw him in one of the Priory Year books. I remember spending hours piecing together broken pots with masking tape. Also I swam for a local swimming club called the Flying Fish. I think the manager was a chap called Mr Neville.
Who was the craziest person during your time at Priory?
Where do you live and what do you do now?
I live in St. Albans in England. I am a physiotherapist and worked for many years at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. Also worked for Sir Alex Ferguson, the Manchester United manager

Much, much worse though, was the assault by Willie Johnston at Ibrox on John McMaster. The poisonous toad stamped on McMaster's throat and went back to have another go as the Dons' player lay choking on the ground. It took prompt action by physio Roland Arnott to make sure that the cynical attack didn't turn out to be even worse than it was. Comment which accompanied this newspaper picture. Roland is on the right.

What do you think of the Priory site?
Always looked forward to my Jamaican Pattie and Canada Dry at break time. Great site.
