Comment on Callum Murray Retires from Montgomery County Planning Department by Callum Murray /callum-murray-retires-from-montgomery-county-planning-department/#comment-5 Fri, 12 Feb 2016 17:45:21 +0000 Hello Willie:

This is only the second time I looked at this page. I remember you very well. Boy! Larkhall 5- a – sides – that takes me back.

So how are you? Are you retired? How’s your brother doing?

After I read your comment, I took a peek at the old Heathfield Drive house on Google Earth. I was amazed to see some trees I planted in 1972!

I continued playing when I arrived in the States in 1984. I became a lot fitter, because I was off the hard stuff (the reason I left). Played in some ridiculously hot weather (104F or around 35C)
I played fives until I was 47, just before the Brazil -Italy World Cup Final in 1984, which I went to.
I then coached the World Bank Team for 3 years. I enjoyed it, but ended up spending way too much time recruiting players, because everyone was so mobile, and kept moving on.

Anyway, Willie, I hope you get this. I have no idea if you will or not.

My home email is

All the best,
