Gone but not forgotten. R.I.P.
I played in three teams over the years in the Festival League between 1964 and 1980 ish. Stratford Star, Selbrooke and Stone FC. Great times and 1st class leagues. Wish I could play 90 minutes now!!
I played for Witton Rangers, It must have been around 1952/3 before I went in the army. I think it was in the early days of Festival League.The only names I can remember were Bernard Gilbert, Norman............the manager/player. We didn'y win anything.Did anyone play in this league. If so who did you play for?. Jean.
Lion Rangers were a good team around 1962 I think. I remember them turning up at Perry Common Rec one Sunday in a new strip. Dark green shirts black shorts and burgundy socks. They looked very impressive. I knew a couple of the players but I can't remember their names now.Thanks John. Great photo's Bob. Did Johny play for Lion Rangers at any time Jim?. Jean.
