Letter: Memories of a character

JUST a note about Cyril Bruce (Express Pictures from the Past, January 3), what a character he was.

I remembers as kids we used to play football on St Helen’s School field, but in summer when the goalposts were taken down we’d use what we could find.

My mate went to get what he thought were old rags to use as posts. It turned out it was Cyril having a nap.

The old boy got up, laughed and walked off with his two dogs lagging behind.
