Just received this from a really nice guy, we have had thousands like it , illustrating Jimmys greatness as a person. I had the pleasure of meeting and playing with the great man at Caster holiday camp near Yarmouth on1961 when he left AC Milan to join spurs. He was there for a week being filmed by Anglia television. The camp picked a team including Jimmy and Bobby Smith and I and two mates had the pleasure in playing too. We had a fantastic week with jimmy he is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and I pray and wish him all the best for a speedy recovery. Love and regards from a Arsenal fan. Peter McGill. PS please pass this onto Jimmy.
