I’ll be completely honest with you guys here, I know nothing about football whatsoever, but this week in the pictures from the past slot, I have a soccer special. Top reader and contributor [Howmuch?] recently located some interesting newspaper scans showing popular local teams of our area in 1921. Some of the names seem very familiar, and I’m hoping that readers can shed some light on the dashing young players in their team photos.
Also in the mix are a couple of images from the 1960’s, which I’m sure will stir memories for those discussing the old Central Boys’ School, pupils and teachers from which must surely be in these two teams.
I thank [Howmuch?] for another top quality contribution, and of course, David F. Vodden for putting together such a wonderful book. If you get chance, bag a copy – it’s brilliant.
