Here's a picture taken in 1977 at the New York Comos Stadium, prior to playing against New York Cosmos, they had Pele, Chinaglia etc etc.
It was a packed out stadium with 53,000 people all wanting to watch Pele v George Best.
In the picture was myself, George Best, Bobby McAlinden (Georges good friend) and kneeling was Charlie Cooke, who had played for Chelsea and Scotland.
As it was taken in 1977 and it now being 2017, it's a 40 year old picture that someone sent me.
On the day, NYC won 5-2 and Pele got a hat-trick.
“A big thank you for laying on yet another fantastic Footballers Golf Classic Event in La Manga this week. The organisation and help before, and during, the event is superb and all done with a cheery smile and extraordinary patience and understanding! As you know, we brought along some of our important customers and from a hosts point of view it is a perfect event as all I have to worry about is spending time with them and everything else is taken care of. I am very hopeful that we will be there again in 2016 to enjoy what must be one of the top 'all standard' amateur golf competitions anywhere in the world.”

“What a great ‘Sparks’ trip and much credit to you for all your hard work not only in getting us there but throughout the 3/4/5 days keeping us all in the right place at the right time during the daylight hours. It was all fantastic after the sun went down but I know you were both working behind the scenes in preparation for the next round of golf, etc. I admire your patience in dealing with so many aspects of the event and I sincerely hope you will there again next year. Our travel arrangements were seamless and a big 'Thank You' for always handling our requests calmly.”
