In 2011, we asked Kevin Bridges to write his top football memory for an Alzheimer Scotland project we were involved in. It is a brilliant reflection on his first meeting with Graham Hunter in Barcelona in 2010 and then attending his first Clasico, the 5-0 game in November of that year.

His knowledge and understanding of the game is exceptional. He is also something of a football tourist, having attended the Superclascio – Boca Juniors v River Plate – and now planning a trip to a San Lorenzo game.
