"UNDER 15 FOOTBALL The season was one in which some excellent results were achieved, but in which a few games were disappointingly lost. The nucleus of the side remained constant. Sentance proved a reliable but bad-tempered goalkeeper. Hudson, Cowley and Morgan played soundly at the back, and Henry of the mazy runs played at right back - occasionally. The team was well served in mid field by Charlesworth, Tindall, Aplin and Webster whose hair, at least, was reminiscent of Charlie George. Percy, Stacey and the sly Mayor scored the goals, and Rogers and Grainger were faithful reserves. The team played well enough to get into Europe, but succumbed in both games on Belgian soil. However, they did put the Under 14's in their place on a unforgettable day at Blankenburge Stadium."
