The addition to the Association's website of photos of Dave Clough at a netball match triggered my memory of his court-
Cloughie decided, unbeknown to the rest of us, that it would clear his head to have a quick spin on his motorbike before he went to bed. I say "motorbike", but what most of us had was the Honda 50, and mostly second-
"Nothing much," he mumbled, "Fell off my bike last night."
He then explained about going for a ride to clear his head.
"How's the bike?"
"Oh, it's fine."
And that was the end of it -
"I'm in the pooh" was all he said.
