I can't claim the credit for this photo as I bought it from a local newspaper, but old Springfield Park supporters can enjoy it!
Superb picture again Ivor!
P.S. Fancy doing an interview for the football fanzine?
I think the player in the centre background is Walter Stanley.If I remember correctly he played on the left wing.From the angle of the header it cold have been this player that crossed the ball.
correct geoff it is walt Stanley
Any latics fans who can recall matches like this please get in touch via the Mudhutter website.
Is Allan Brown at the edge of the box to the right of Harry? and is the inside forward Carl Davenport?
What season would this be?
Now we beat Oswestry 3-0 in seasons 1961-62 and 1964-65. I don't think Harry played for us in 1961-62 so I presume it was 1964-65. Any comments?
It was the 1964-65 season. Allan Brown (player/manager)is just behind Harry's legs with Carl Davenport following up. This was the season we won the Cheshire League and Lyon scored 66 goals in all competitions.
Sad to read about the death of Allan Brown this week (April 2011. He was a very shrewd manager who got the best out of his players. Thanks for some great memories Allan!
Is Barry Knowles on it? he is my dads second cousin
