WELL, hello again and welcome to another Green'Un Gold and this week something a little bit different from the norm.
And thanks to Dennis Ellis from Ipswich for some wonderful old photographs.
Dennis has many old pictures autographed and his fine collection includes this signed picture of the 1948 England team that played against Wales.

“I enjoy looking at the old pictures in the Green'Un,” Dennis said.
“I'm 62 now and remember many of them.”

Well, thank you Dennis for the photographs and remember, like Dennis, you don't have to send us the originals, you can make good photocopies of them and send them in to us.
The photograph in Green'Un Gold of the Whitton side two weeks ago brought back happy memories. We had a very strong side in those days although four of us in that picture were 19 and under.
Several of us were on Football League club books or had previous experience with league Clubs.
From memory Bill Thorpe, Brian Green, Mick Banthorpe and Ron Mann had been associated with League Clubs before joining Whitton, Barry Harper and myself were on Ipswich books, and Tommy Woodward was signed by Norwich.
The "not known" player in the picture is Russell Bryant, called into the side to replace Billy Greaves who was injured just before the Final, although you mentioned this in last week's Green'Un.
To jog Derek's memory I scored twice that day and Russell Bryant got the third.
