I remember Tom Boland from St Josephs back in the 50s,and Tony Fairhust from "Tommy More" in the late 50s
Most of this side played in the Hancock Trophy Final in 1981 when we lost to Shevvy Plough n Harrow, 2-3 ( aet ). The match was played on a bone dry pitch in blustery wind at Ashton Town one friday night. Keeper,Alan Baybutt was out injured , so here's a teaser:
.... Who replaced him in goal for the final and also scored one of The Swan's two goals? And for a bonus point who got the other goal?
HELLO BILL WAS IT CEORGE POOLE WHO PLAYED IN GOAL FOR WHITE SWAN F.C.IN THE HANCOCK TROPHY FINAL AT ASHTON TOWN AND SCORED A GOAL. (WRONG AGAIN HOPE NOT GOOD TEAM THIS)
you're right pal, it was pooley who played in goal andscored the pen . It was a lad - not in the picture- named Leo? who got the other... a teacher mate of dave braithwaite's i recall.
Bill -it was Leo Conley who now forms part of great quiz team as " white Swan B" every Thursday with associates Berry , Braithwaite and Walls ! 3 defenders and a forward who says we did not have brains !
