TO start the ball rolling, we kick-off with a photograph that includes none other than our Ipswich Town writing legend Mr Elvin King.
Elvin was a fine footballer in his time (or so he tells us!). But no seriously, he enjoyed many hours of football on the playing fields of Suffolk, netting goals on a regular basis.
So thanks Elvin for kicking us off. Now over to you guys and girls, get those pictures and memories in.

Not only does it give proof that hair did once grow on the King dome, it also illustrates the start of a budding career.

This included a Suffolk Senior Cup final appearance at Portman Road and a winner's medal in the Premier Division of the Ipswich and District League, now the Senior Division of the SIL.
The picture came to life when my attic was being tidied, and there must be host of other football photos of bygone time that would be of interest to Evening Star readers.
I would love some more information about the above motley crew pictured with rural studies teacher Mr Dawes. We never had a PE teacher and not even a sports hall or changing rooms.
But games against other schools, East Bergholt, Claydon, Bramford, Kesgrave and Needham Market were big occasions and the standard quite high.
What would be interesting would be to know what happened to my
former team mates.
Unfortunately I have lost track with most of the lads and would appreciate hearing from them either via e-mail to me at email@example.com or phone 01473 324834.”
