JUST BEEN TRYING TO SORT OUT MY VAST COLLECTION OF FOOTBALL PROGRAMMES. AND CAME ACROSS THIS PROGRAMME FOR THE GAME PLAYED AT THE ORRELL RUGBY UNION GROUND. PRESTON LADIES STARTED LIFE AS DICK KERR'S LADIES IN THE 1920'S. DID ANYONE GO TO THE GAME? I CANT REMEMBER IF I WENT OR NOT?

I didn't go to the game but I do remember Baxter Bros shop in Up Holland, Baxter's had a shop in Up Holland until Arnold Baxter retired in the mid/late 1980's. The Parker Family took over the shop till it closed in the mid 1990's.
