David Rocastle, a Brockley hero

Today is the tenth anniversary of the death of Arsenal, England and Brockley legend David Rocastle, a great footballer and one of life's good guys.

He died of non-Hodgkins lymphoma before his 34th birthday, having earned 228 Arsenal and 14 England caps, as well as playing for Leeds, Manchester City and Chelsea.

Transpontine notes that he went to Turnham Primary School in Brockley and Roger Manwood Secondary School in Brockley Rise.
