Occasionally you receive exciting mail and today was one of those days. Thanks to the lovely Barbara in the US, I now have a newspaper clipping about the Wing football team of 1927/8! This photo was published in the Leighton Buzzard Observer in February 1988:
|Wing football team 1927/28|
Back row standing: P Paxton (trainer), W Corbett, W Woolhead, L Pitchford, E Gates, Joe Brand, G Woodwards, Mr Osborne (chairman), landlord of the Dove Inn [which you can see in the background] P Janes, and L Corbett (secretary).
Middle row seated: J Corbett (linesman), B Roper, W Rowe, V Woodwards, and Mr Fowler of Aylesbury (referee).
Front row seated: M Bolton, L Bandy, W Hounslow, O Horne, and F Rickard.
The team had won the Marsworth Cup a week or two previously. Well done, lads!
