    His dad also ran the yellow kangaroo for steve Borley a few years back . Bish used to be part of a group of us that used to go out on Saturday nights many years ago in the group was glen Webbe and him and dai were apprentice electricians. Bish was good as gold most nights but when the mood struck him he could start a fight in a convent. He was a great scrum half for pontypool and just unlucky to be around in the same era as terry Holmes otherwise he would have got many caps for Wales

    Dai Bishop was a decent amateur boxer, his old man had photos of him in his Welsh vest on display in the lounge of the Tudor back in 1976 ish.

    No not him, I remember Evans the darter in Oldham's social club when city fans smashed it up, he hid behind the curtain on the stage.

    No, I knew Ivor well, we used to play in the same pool team, Ivor was a smart fella, hard as nails but a good laugh.

    Not when he was old he wasn't mate. He used to be an absolute nuisance (not aggressive) by the end. Him and Terry both ended up on the streets. Chris as well..Sad to see really.

    Last time I saw Ivor was in 1987, he was living with a woman in Rumney then and was settled and happy, gutted to hear he had lost his way in life, he was a good mate in the years I knew him.
