@Reidy138 said, “Really random day, went to Eastbourne after footie training with the boy, day at the beach (not warm enough) then went for a drive to Beachy Head and saw Lee Dixon in a layby taking in the views.

“Had to explain to my boy that Lee was a hero of mine as I played right-back as well when I was younger, he loved the idea.

"Lee gave us a wave especially when he saw Conor in the 2022/23 home kit, made my day.”
