Thanks to Pete McGregor for sending this one for the 1962-63 Milford Junior School Team and it will be added to the Clifton teams of the 1960s and 1970s that now has an impressive 22 teams of the past. These are on the homepage of the website and can be seen in the photo section
A lot of these lads have now retired. Is Your Grandad here. Luckily this one which is in fantastic condition comes with the full team list.
The players are
(back row) Martin Wright, Brynley Parfitt, Andre Tinkler, Ronnie Hill, Andrew Robinson, Andrew Anderson, Graham Bosworth
(front row) Stuart Swift, Peter Wells, Geoffrey Smith, Pete McGregor, Terry Freer, Stephen Jackson, Jeffrey Shepherd, John Tomlinson, Ivan Kidger
At the time a lot of these lads were looking to play local football and the Nottingham City Council in previous years had prevented them from doing so. This was the start of the competitive game for 8 to 15 year olds. One such friendly was played on Swansdowne Road where New Clifton beat Thistledown Rovers 36-0, Pete McGregor scoring 12 of the goals.
This type of score was not uncommon as the ages of players could see one team of 11 year olds up against a team of 9 year olds. Do You have an old Football Photo from Clifton Junior Schools
We add a new team every Tuesday morning. Do you have any original Clifton All Whites or other teams that can be added to the photo sections. Somebody out there has them stuffed in their drawers. Send a picture of old teams by email or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
