  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.
    Barking and District Football League medal.
    Hallmark suggests it is silver.


    INTER DIV 1920-1

    Any ideas? Which team? Team members?

  3. I played in the cup final (14-16yrs age group) at Chelsea in either 1956 or1957 and was presented with a medal by Ted Drake the then manager of Chelsea. As I remember it Bobby Moore then unknown was playing in the opposite side. Unfortunately we lost the game. In those days the dog track ran around the Chelsea Pitch. I still have the ASHLEY SHIELD MEDAL
