Thanks Paul, will try and put a few names to the faces, as rebus said mainly lads who played i n the Seanglian league and Combination side, Jackie Goodwin and Jimmy Carr (next to Dennis Piggot) managed the youth and Seanglian teams.I saw him after the game and said I had a picture from the late 1890's.
I have vague recollections of being told that behind those windows was some electrical stuff. I think that former GPG stalwart, Nigel Brooks's dad did some work at the ground in the 60s and fuse boxes etc were housed there. He was a sparks in the area and I'm sure I heard this from him.Above the short guy on the left of the photo in a tracksuit is what appears to be a pair of windows in the stand, what was behind them (f they were windows)?
His son Dave went to my school. He was a decent player too and turned out for my Saturday side a few times later on.Yes, pretty sure that's Jackie Goodwin. Used to see him a lot when I was growing up on the Medway Estate in Perivale, just off the A40 in the late '60s/early '70s. I remember a neighbour saying what a good player he was, and having an ex-player from your boyhood club living close by was quite cool. Just as good was having John Docherty and Gordon Sweetzer turn up at a school football training session in the late '70s (this was Burlington Danes in East Acton). I was too gobsmacked to say anything!
