Looking at the cups on the ground in front of the players, 1959-60 appears to have been a successful season for the club.

"I believe that these are the names of the footballers.  If I've got any of them wrong, I'm sure somebody will be in touch.

I have been married to Cliff Read for 48 years.  We have known each other since we were at school.  He was in the year above me.
