Alcohol Free Football Team 1906-07

My my – you wait ages for a bus and two turn up at once er… I meant football teams. It is interesting to note that two of the players are wearing ties and one is sporting a cap – all of that would be curious to see in modern teams. One of the supporters is smoking so … a ban on drink but not on fags! Does anyone recognise a long lost relative? Do you reckon the picture was taken at Broadgate?

I wish to thank that splendid chap Keith Belton, of the Durham Amateur Football Trust, for this photograph – it formed page three of the Christmas card he sent me. And what an interesting page 3!
If there are any other appropriate acknowledgements to make in respect of the photograph I will gladly arrange it: please contact me if that applies.

    My text has disappeared from this posting – still it was a miracle to get the photo onto the site and I can only thank my son for his time and patience in arranging it.

    Many thanks for the Photo Wilf, I have re-edited your photo making it slightly smaller as was not displaying correctly at full size. I have also added your text.

    Thanks Again

    Paul
