An interesting one reachers me from friend of the blog Lisa Ashby who’s spotted this appeal floating around Facebook – we seem to be doing a lot of football-related photos lately, and we’ve been so successful I think this one’s worth sharing too.
The appeal is from Jo and Mike Beardsmore, and is a little unusual.
Going through some stuff of my dads last night and found this picture that was given to him along with a note asking him to get in touch.
It was from a Gene Hunter. My dad cannot remember how this was passed to him and didn’t even know he had it although likely to be a while ago. My dad would love to meet up with Gene for a chat about the old days. If anyone could help me get in touch I really would appreciate it. The first picture is of Aldridge Athletic 1961 and the 2nd picture is of Gene Hunter himself. Last known to be living in Walsall.
If you can help with this one, or indeed, have anything to contribute on the subject of Aldridge Athletic football team, I’d be glad to hear it.

Cheers to Lisa for the tipoff, as ever.
