Sad to see that Cyril Regis has passed away, it is in all the national news papers and every match played yesterday held two minutes silence for him but, not one person has mentioned Hayes FC the team that took him on as a black player and gave him the opportunity to show his skills to the much wider football public.
In the 77/78 season he scored 24 goals and was seen by WBA who paid 10K for him and took him to the top of the football game, he even managed to play for England.
I would like to say to all the football teams and players in the UK come on, give good old Hayes FC a great big mention for spotting his talent and helping him to get to the heights he did

RIP Cyril Regis

Well said Michael. I never met him but by all accounts he was a nice fellow.
