Brain now exhausted, but will have another look later on...

12 Jeff winter?

Yes of course Charlieboy! I had foolishly been thinking of David Allison.

I'll give you and Charlieboy a mark for Winter. I had been thinking of Alice in (Allison) Wonderland

19. I don't think Raymond Boggs ever made it to the Football League list.

Warm, and I'm not talking about the stuff in the conveniences!

17. About whom I once penned a daft wee verse.

I don't remember it, but I'm sure you're right, you have been so far.

Well done everyone so far. I enjoyed reading the answers from the balcony of my country pile (caravan). More tomorrow!

My apologies to AT for inadvertently giving him a dumb rating. I must stop using my phone for this site.

41 though, is a problem. I'm not sure whether Worrall is too independent to count as a suburb. And what about the key? The musical key favoured for the carol singing at the Blue Ball? Unlikely. I shall look on the Brightside and keep thinking.

Not so foolishly after all,  then. But it is always better to think of David Allison rather than Jeff Winter.

17. About whom I once penned a daft wee verse.

I don't remember it, but I'm sure you're right, you have been so far.

it was over 4 years ago, and not memorable, so you can be forgiven.

To remind you, here it is

One problem that I've long found tough
Is knowing how to say "John Hough."
That seemed the best to me, although
Some others may prefer "John Hough."
Then one day, by an Irish Lough,
I wondered "Could it be 'John Hough?'"
A songbird tweeted from a bough
That really he was called "John Hough."
My friend remarked, with discreet cough,
That really it should be "John Hough."
But having thought the whole thing through
I'm sure most fans just asked "John Hough?"

To which you amusingly, if none too helpfully, posted "I think it's Hough."

For 32 my guess would be George Tyson, with J. Cross of Accrington in reserve if not.

1. I suspect Specsavers must do hearing tests now, but whether they could have helped  Dr Spooner with his problem is open to question. Is Coventry relevant?

I believe we need to wait for AT 's response before treating the above list as gospel.
