With special thanks to Ron Stanway and Peter Williams for the photo and names.

Chris Williams adds: "My real name is Peter Williams. I was called Chris because, when I arrived, they told me that they already had a Peter. I put my hand in the badge box and out came 'Chris.' That name stayed with me for three years there." (1964-66)

On the Filey 1965 team photo page, it says that the camp tramp was Bobby Hays-Smith. The following season he was with us. See photo above, at no 9 row 2. He was then camp compere - and very talented he was too. It also mentions on the Filey 1965 page that Bobby was on "Opportunity Knocks." You may remember on the show Hughie Green always had someone on to introduce the act, and Bobby asked me to go to the studios, I think in Manchester, to do that.

He was a talented musician and, on the show, he finished the spot by playing the "Sailors Hornpipe," on a double-bass across his knee - like a guitar. He went on to appear with 'Morton Frazer Harmonica Gang.' Who is old enough to remember them?

I have just had a great reminisce. Thanks, Peter (Chris) Williams
