1977

1964 / 1965 Season










Bill Bond did step back to leave the youth club members to run the team themselves and thankfully the addition of a few ex ‘YC Juniors proved to be a tremendous help in keeping the club going. The key role of secretary was taken on by Billy Anderson and was helped by Norman T Taylor.

 

Billy played until the 1971/72 season and stayed on the committee until 1992. He was a quality player who was fast and a natural goal scorer. He should have played many more games than he did. However he made the ultimate sacrifice in taking on the secretary’s job to ensure the Club survived and progressed. His other roles included Treasurer and Vice Chairman.


Norman played until the 1974/1975 season and served the club until 1999. His roles included, Press Officer, Chairman and is now a Life President. He was responsible for bringing in many quality players to the Club and his vision, ambition and drive was one of the main reasons for the clubs success and eventual progress to the Northern League.


Other players who came from the Juniors included Harry Orrell and George Routledge

Again it was another difficult season with all games still having to be played on opponents grounds. It was still a bit of a learning curve with it being run for the first time by the players themselves. There was obviously no success in terms of League titles or trophies but proving that the players could run the club on their own  was a huge success in itself. The season ended with great optimism for the clubs future.
