...that I don't fully understand:

"Six-nil: fast and rough" = violent. I see the 6-0 part...

"Slimmer ancient swimmer lost note" is probably 'leaner' but I've not been able to google any old swimmers by prefixing A-G.

Many thanks.

Hi Trevor
Despite living in Liverpool for 7 years,this was just before Ian Broudie was active on the Rock scene.
Never met him as he was a Liverpool fan and my allegiance lay with Everton.

Apparantly, Ian McCulloch is a big cryptic Xword fan.
