  1. My uncle, Stanley Radley, played with the Barking & District Football League. I have just found a photograph of the team – Season 1933-34 which includes H. Morris, Chairman, G. Richardson Hon. Sec. and H. Ross Captain.

    Might the Club like to have it as a part of their archives?

  2. Found, in Scotland.
