The last I heard he (Gil Singh) was running the club on Oatland Lane. But that was in the early 90's and I think the club is gone now. I'm quite sure he's a distant relative (uncle once removed or summat like) of a friend of mine, I'll give him a ring tonight when he's back from work and see what he says.
Sit thissen dahn an' tell us abaht it.

Found an old pic of him. I suppose if you search some wrestling sites there may be other pix.

I thought there were brothers who were wrestlers called Singh from Leeds? Is this just one of them or am I mistaken, probably !    
Is it me or has Leeds gone mad

He used about 3 different names so that's why you think there were others.
