I don't remember a slide on William Foster playing field's I was on there quite a lot with a friend who lived just off Darlington At.

Wherever it is it’s a cracking picture. I love the guy on the left even though he looks like he’s come straight from slopping out his Pig Sty. He obviously sees the photo shoot as a great opportunity for a quick drag on his Woodbine!

Johnny: If Philip G had been with you that day he'd have shown you how to take that shine off the ball, he was very good at football as a young chap.

John G
I often had a kick-about with PhilipG on the field between London Fields and Royden Road Billinge.
You know he could send a ball over in such a manner that you wouldn't head the laces
By the cringe those old leather balls were heavy !!
