Derek Greenhoff, Neil Allen,pete Widd At Wigan 1981


 Share

Recommended Posts

Derek Greenhoff from Barnsley hanging out with Neil Allen in the record bar at Wigan oldies Sept 1981. I know that lad with glasses on the right - it wasnt Chris ? was it?

A couple of years ago I was DJing with Derek Greenhoff at a club in Barnsley, Derek Allen from Nottingham (RIP) was the guest DJ. I remarked at the time that it would probably be the only time 3 DJs called Derek would be on the same bill.

Pete Widdison from Southampton drinking orange - used to buy quite a lot of records off him at the time. Still recall during that mass brawl in the record bar Pete standing on a table and hitting a bloke on the head with a chair.Found out years later it was something to do with a load of rugby players from Wigan on a night out taking the piss. Please note it was compulsory for men at that time to have moustaches.post-1224-1147622146.jpg

more photos when time will allow.

the Casino kick off, fantastic.

Didn't the chair break and the bloke who resembled a 3 storey high block of flats turn round and smile....at the point I dived under a table.
