Most football supporters can recall who they looked on as their favourite players when they first started watching. Luke Chadwick is no exception.
As a young U's fan looking on from the terraces in the late 80s/early 90s, his favourite player was Gary Clayton. He even had a signed photo of the man.
Sad to say, Luke lost the picture, as told the 100 Years of Coconuts crew when he was being filmed for Coconuts TV (see the results at the bottom of the page here).
What could we do for our patron to fill the gap in his life created by the loss of such a precious memento? Get in touch with Gary and ask him to sign a replacement, of course.
Mr Clayton, now living back in his Sheffield birthplace, was only too happy to oblige, and a happy Luke is pictured with the evidence.
Happy to provide the link between two outstanding players, who are both members of the Coconuts-managed Cambridge United Former Players' Association.
