Here is a photograph of Wirksworth Ivanhoe taken sometimes in the 1960s by the Matlock Mercury.

The team played in the Sutton and Skegby Premier League.

The submitted shot shows referee Mr Everson in the back row with Gordon Beet, Colin Hopkinson, Richard Needham, goalkeeper Mick Needham, Tony Spencer, and Graham Buckley.

Kneeling down on the front row is Brian Wanford, Norman Lawrence, John Taylor, Harry Redfern and Peter Haywood.

The club was formed in 1921 and is still going strong today.

They play at the Recreation Ground in their club colours of green and white.
