Crow­land in the cup fi­nal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

HERE we have an­other pho­to­graph taken by the late Cyril Foster, a keen pho­tog­ra­pher from Crow­land.

The notes ac­com­pa­ny­ing the pho­to­graph state that the Crow­land team was ap­pear­ing in the ju­nior cup fi­nal at Peter­bor­ough United’s Lon­don Road ground in 1952. How­ever, this left us a lit­tle con­fused sim­ply be­cause few of the play­ers looked as if they were out of their teenage years!

Tracy Purdy on email thinks that one of the play­ers may be a fam­ily mem­ber.

She said: “My son Gavin thinks that the man in the sec­ond row, sec­ond on the left with no hair and his arms folded, is his late pa­ter­nal gran- dad, Gil­bert Simp­son.

“My ex-hus­band, Gavin’s dad, now lives in Canada and his grand­mother has passed away too, so there is no-one who can ver­ify this for us. It would be re­ally bizarre if it was him, as Gavin’s son, Bradley, was in the pa­per the same day this pic­ture was pub­lished, scor­ing a hat trick for the same team!”

ALL SET FOR THE BIG MATCH: The Crow­land team that ap­peared in the ju­nior cup fi­nal.
