RE­GARD­ING the pho­to­graph of the Hope Tav­ern foot­ball team who ap­peared in the De­cem­ber 12 edi­tion of the Bu­gle.

They joined the Dud­ley and Cradley Heath League in 1990 and in their first sea­son as Divi­sion Three cham­pi­ons, Dean Sey­mour fin­ished as the league’s lead­ing goalscorer, with 53 goals. Paul O’neil fin­ished with 37.

The sec­re­tary was Fred White­house, and the team played on Dud­ley Wood play­ing fields, pitch num­ber 3.

In 1991-92 they fin­ished as run­ners-up in Divi­sion 2. They lost in the Dud­ley Guest Hos­pi­tal Cup fi­nal to Dud­ley Labour, they won the Se­nior Cup by beat­ing Malt Shovel 2-1.

Dean Sey­mour was again the league’s lead­ing goalscorer, this time with 59 goals. Again they played on Dud­ley Wood, but changed at the Wood­man pub.

Then in the 1992-93 sea­son they changed their name to Nether­ton Old Boys. There­fore the pho­to­graph [re­pro­duced on the right] must dated from be­tween 1990 and 1992.
