Gaywood's Peter Mendham tells of the good and bad times
He was the local boy made good. A Gaywood lad who went to the big city and became a footballing star.
But as his autobiography In His Own Words, Peter Mendham, On The Inside, recounts those good times have been more than counterbalanced by the not-so-good, culminating in him being sent to prison for a terrible knife attack on his girlfriend that nearly killed her.
