I met Nicky and played golf with him some 10 years ago now in a charity competetion, what a gentleman, above all he loved his time at Homepark. He was then living in Wimborne and working as a probation officer then, a sad day to all of us at a certain age R.I.P. Nicky
Great shame. He was in the team when I saw my first game in 1964. Remember the time he left the pitch to change his shirt but, as an opportunity arose to go for goal on the through ball, cam back on the pitch carrying his shirt in his hand. Memories. RIP.
Loved watching him, totally honest left winger. Very, very quick. Barry Jones, Mike Trebilcock, Mike Bickle, Richard Reynolds, Nicky Jennings - or at least that's the forward line I think I remember… anyone enlighten me?!
The forward line used to roll off the tongue in the early/mid sixties....Barrie Jones, Mike Trebilcock,Frank Lord, Cliff Jackson and Nicky Jennings...used to sing a little song at the time,courtesy of Manfred Mann(Do wah diddy)... Hooray,who scored,was it Jennings or Frank Lord....
Bad week is this, with Ali passing away and now another boyhood hero departing. Very sad news, we didn't see enough of Nicky at HP and he was yet another of the Argyle talents criminally undersold, went on to have a distinguished career at Portsmouth.
