Isn't this a great pic?

It's Westerfield United, with a certain Mr Roger Osborne, bottom row, right, with ball.

It's the Suffolk Senior Cup final, April 1969 and it is at Portman Road - the Swans were playing Hadleigh United.

I've done a bit of digging and Hadleigh won 3-2.

Again the Green'Un Facebook page members came to the party with the line-up....

Westerfield United team was, P Mayhew in goal, D. Foskett, R. Laughlin, R.Pyett, R. Harrison, R. Welham, K. Rayon, B. Sadler, J. Pipe, A. Farthing, R. Osborne. Sub was Norman Green.


AND FINALLY....

This photograph was posted on Suffolk Sporting Memories (why not join that group - lots of interesting sports old pix on there).

It was posted by David Keeble, who posted this note with it.

'This is Woodbridge Youth Club Football Team from around 1966.

'Taken on the old Woodbridge Town ground at Peterhouse Crescent in Woodbridge. We played in the Sunday Combination league with the likes of a very good Belstead side (The Bunn bothers, Dave Pearsons and Barry Tooke, et al).

'Some very good other sides also.'


We'll be back with some more old teams of yesteryear, not just from football. But if for now you would like to post any, go to either to Suffolk Sporting Memories, or Green'Un Facebook pages and join the community.
