Memory Lane – The Seed Collection (Part 2)

Peter Seed, manager of one of the greatest Sunday league sides ever, Oceans XI, gives unique access to his collection of photographs and press cuttings.  In the second and final part we take a look at the Sunday football scene from the late sixties to the early seventies.  Pictures, newspaper articles and programmes.

We'd like to thank Peter Seed for giving us access to his collection of pictures and photographs.

The frst ever Sunday league final at Bloomfield Road.

Hard to read but the best I could do.  Great picture of Pete Collins.

A celebrity line up on the left with Tom Nolan (Brother of the Nolans) and our very own registration secretary Dennis Peters in goal.  Dennis tells me that despite a heroic display of net keeping his side went on to narrowly lose 4-0.  Dennis was slightly more agile in those days.

A regular event in the late seventies/early 1980's and still going today.  Current referee Mike Mahoney below showing his drinking prowess.

Mike 'Crazy Barney' Mahoney.
