Fantastic to see Mr Akers so well at 90, looking back to when i was at Purley Boys ( 1980 to 1983 ) he was hard but fair, he instilled hard work and discipline into so many of us, a lot of my later success in life is due to him. Does anyone have an email address or other contact details for him ? I live less than 20 miles away and pass Bexhill on sea regularly when i train my racing pigeons, Regards, Michael
