LIGHTING UP AT TRAINING

At this time smoking was very much a feature of social habits particularly after the rigors of a physical training session. In October 1961 the club gave a new meaning to ‘lighting up’ when the installed floodlights to facilitate dark night training. Sadly, in keeping with the clubs tradition of being always just one penny short of a full purse those that trained were asked to pay towards the cost of turning on the lights. Amateur days indeed and may be there was a double benefit if players had less to spend on cigarettes as well as getting fit!
