A while ago I posted a blog entry on my hometown, Blackley. I have been overwhelmed by the response from people all around the world either with their comments on the post or directly to me by email.
One of the lovely people who have contacted me is a chap called John who is trying to trace anyone who knows anything about the local football team around 1913. John has very kindly sent me a copy of a photograph of the team and I’m throwing it open to anyone who might know anything about the club or any of the players and where they played.
The information we have already is that this picture was in the Middleton Guardian in 1913 following a match where the team were the victors, winning 4-2 (we don’t know who they played so can’t check out the details of why the story made it to the local papers). The family name Sutterby has been mentioned in connection with this picture (three brothers Harold, Percy and Albert (Bert)), and they were related through the previous generation to a grocer and butcher by the name of Frank Hulme of Moston.
If you can shed any further light on the people in this photo or any details about the club then please do get in touch. Many thanks!!
