Terry Craven Writes (RhAF) Writes:-
The second photo of the 1st XV 1936, the vice captain M Payne is my uncle, thru marriage his wife Jessie is my moms sister. This is the first time I have seen this particular photo. I never knew that my uncle Mikey even played rugby.

My dad went on to play Hockey for Alex and was Captain and Vice Captain.

This Football club was one of the earliest ever started, They had Motivated players and the coach was an outstanding teacher, he told them every single flicker trick's one of his player's got injured so they got to surgical equipment manufacturers to have the safety kit ready for them which helped them alot and are still useful.
