Back to BRAZILYMM '66 - huge fund raising success at The Lymm Hotel

Interview with Bessie Vale

Bessie Vale worked at the bar in the Lymm Hotel.  In 2016, Bessie recalled  'I remember Pele was left at the hotel for the Hungary game  - injured apparently. But when Brazil scored, he started running up and down the room, jumping for joy'.  I said, ' I thought you were supposed to be injured!'.  He smiled, not that he understood very much English apart from 'biscuits'.
