Peter Bradshaw and history of the club

08 Sep 2019

We have been contacted by Peter Bradshaw who played for Old Actonians in the 1950’s. He is interested in finding a copy of the 1954 Fixture Card – Does anyone have a copy or know of anyone who might?

Peter remembers the Barwick’s; the captain at the time was Lionel Perkins (whose sister he married). He talks about celebrating his birthday on the 8th May at the Abbey Hotel back in 1954.

This has reminded me that something we are not very good at is recording our history - myself, Robbo and Smithy are trying to rectify this – so any help with this or any other historical artefact is appreciated - Old team photo’s; scorebooks etc

We have our Centenary Season coming up in a couple of years and it would be good to get as much information together as possible.
