We played in the same Aloysius Team from Juniors to Seniors.
After I left Hebburn in 1971 we lost touch, then in 1973/1974 (when I was working in Hertfordshire) I saw a notice advertising a "Convent Garden Fete" which Geordie was going to Open, so I took my family to the fete, where I re-stablished contact with Geordie.
Thereafter we visited one another's homes and kept in contact. By this time he was living in Winchmore Hill.
We kept in contact until his early and untimely death.
He never forgot his "roots or his school friends" I know he also communicated with Mr. Carroll (another St. Aloysius Teacher) who as I recollect retired to Ireland.
