Being present at the final game of the season against Leicester back in 1990. Sheffield United needed to win to gain automatic promtion to the old First Division. Brain scored two in a 4-2 victory. I then met him eactly 20 years later at the bar in Hotel de Vin Harrogate. He was brilliant and chatted about the game. I have a fantstic photo of him with my son that day, who had just finished his footbal training session.
