Fond football memories

Sir,

I remember the football pitch at the back of Rutland Cottage. It was the home ground for Charnos football team.

I also remember the genial host Monty. I remember Roy Lacey because I used to work with him and play football with him in the Charnos football team.

I was a linking and seaming mechanic for Charnos from 1948-1952 and played in the Charnos football team in that period.
