60s footballers

Football team - Memory Lane
Football team - Memory Lane

This team of happy sportsman are from the Matlock and District Football League.

The picture was taken in the 1963/4 season by the Matlock Mercury, when it was based in Bakewell Road, Matlock.

We think the picture is of the former Derbyshire Stone football team.

The picture was submitted to the paper by Hazel Oakden, of Woolley Road, Matlock.

The sporting chaps shown in it earned themselves Derbyshire Football Association medals with their nifty footwork.

As well as this they were the proud winners of the Cavendish Cup and were also named runners up in the Matlock and District Football League.
