General:
"Isca" is the main clue here. It was the roman name for Exeter. "Enabes" is Steve's name backwards. Michael rows the boat ashore and Pip was my childhood nickname - just names for the boats as is Primrose. The train 4589 was shedded at Exeter. The daffodils refer to one of Exeter's main stations - St David's (patron saint with the flower of Wales) and the telegraph pole is for Telegraph Hill, a well known traffic hazard nearby. The anchor points us to Exeter's Maritime Museum and the avocets can be seen at certain times of the year on the Exe Estuary. The chess bishop and bishop's crook illustrate a reference in the text to the Bishop's Throne in the Cathedral and the dovecote facing north to Northcote, a theatre in Exeter.
Key:
Again there are two roman numerals here - VII and IX (7 and 9). The only reference to time here is how much time costs - 10/6 per hour. The tenth and sixth words in the text are "this" and "station" which go into positions 7 and 9 in the "key" message
Boy's Name:
To pretend and to false are both a sham. Butchers' shops used to be known as Shambles - take of the sound of bulls and you get "sham". The answer to this clue is SHAM
Article:
Nottingham won the European Cup twice, in 1979 and 1980 - either side of this double victory (i.e. the 'bread' of the sandwich) LIVERPOOL won the trophy.
