Jeff Johnson was Aces goalie for a couple of years in the early 80s - I think he was CR's half brother.

I played goal for the Aces in the early 70s. Two other players, Stan Windross and Bruce Beattie had Canadian hamburger shops around Manchester and as a starving student, I worked for them, cooking hambyrgers and steaks late into the night. I recall Benjamin Reeve working in the Burton Road Shop and one Christopher Reeve walking in one day and asking for him. I think he had already made at least one Superman film by then but being famous hockey players, we weren't impressed. Don't remember his brother playing hockey though.

I played with Jeff played for 2 seasons at Alty. He worked in Stans shop in Chorlton, The Canadian Charcoal Pit, flipping burgers. I know that Chris Reeves came to at least one of the hockey games we played in, which was in Richmond, London. Jeffs father came over a number of times to spend sometime with Jeff. He even joined in a five a side footie game with some of the lads. I am pretty much certain that Chris never came to Manchester to visit.
