Here is the photo I was looking for. Michael's Dad was a referee and helped a lot with the club.

This was Charnford Mills Southalls 1935.

I wonder if anyone can help a friend of mine.A friend of his celebrates his 70th birthday this year,and he is looking for any information he can get on a Sunday morning team he played for in the early to mid 1960s.
The team were called ROCKWOOD ALBION they were based in Alum Rock/Washwood Heath area.
Some of the names he remembers are.Brian Phillips.Graham Spencer.Graham Baffery.John Wellings.Bobby Heath.David(Ginger)Bryan.? Webb.
The manager was known as Satchmo.
Any information would be much appreciated.Moss

Hi Paul,I am well thank you,I hope you are too.
Well fancy you playing for Rockwood,I had never heard of them until my mate set me this task.They must have played at a good level if you played for them.
Thanks to both you and Ken for responding to my question.Moss

So did I. The manager of Sutton Town youth, who I played for as well, moved to Rockwood around that time. I think his name was Reg Brassington or something like that, and he was a bit short of players for a couple of weeks. Funny how these things stick in your mind, but I remember bumping in to him outside Withers by Snow Hill station and him asking me to play.

Hi All,

This is a photo of Heybarnes Utd who played in one of the Sunday leagues. I am in the photo and played for them in ther late 1940s. Any man who lived in the Haybarnes area may remember the chap in civvies second from the left in front row. He was Billy Stokes the barber whose shop was in Heybarnes Road near Coventry Road. Billy was our chairman.
