This one is of the iconic Nottingham Parks Sunday Afternoon Premier League Champions side. A team made up mainly of Saturday Clifton All Whites players who had taken the first team from Young Elizabethan football up to the dizzy heights of East Midlands Regional football.

Although not an All Whites photograph, there are pictures of some of the great players of the period and we have now decided to open up another photo section of other Clifton teams of the 60s and 70s to bring back memories to a generation of wrinklies now hobbling up and down on walking sticks around Clifton Market.
The team shows the great, late Alan Newman, who tragically lost his life too early but still holds the record as the highest number of goals in one season for the All Whites, 120, a record that will probably never be beaten.
Eddie Simpson, who emigrated to Bermuda with a dream job and his partner in crime up front Dennis McKenna, who emigrated to South Africa. They formed a partnership up front that was the envy of any team, slagging each other off for not passing to each other.
Dave (Spud) Taylor , a brilliant goalkeeper who made some fantastic saves. Another one that played for All Whites and Parks.
Paul Hills, “the Chopper Harris” of the team, just liked the opposition to know he was there. Another player that was just as good at cricket as football.
Iain Walsh, (together with Tony Saunders), the first All Whites players to sign contracts with Professional clubs although the accolade for the first All Whites player to play as a Professional in the first team goes to David Staniforth for Sheffield Utd in 1968.
Finally Howard Kilbourne, who formed and managed the team and became a great servant to the local amateur scene.
There is also a picture of Clifton Athletic and Clifton Dynamoes with an up and coming new player Steve Brodie (bottom right)
Finally a picture of the 28th Boys Brigade St Francis Church team with President of Clifton fc Spud Taylor with the ball.
The new section is entitled Clifton from the 60s and 70s
