An Eighties Team Photo

June 9, 2016

Phil Hopkins posted this on Facebook. I’m not sure of the year (he thinks ’80 or ’81), or if it’s a first team squad. If anybody has any info, or can name any of the players, leave a comment or drop me a line.

Autographed Programme from the 1952 F.A. Amateur Cup Final

June 9, 2016

Many thanks to Marilyn Mcintee who sent this scan of the 1952 Amateur Cup Final programme, signed by (nearly) all the players from both Leyton & Walthamstow Avenue

This item is from her father Derrick Mcintee’s personal collection. Derrick was playing up front for Leyton that day, and ironically is the only player not to have signed the programme!
