1956 - 1958 Bill Barkess's Recollections
Bill Barkess was a member of the team for several years in the 50's/'60s. He has supplied the following information for the team of 1956 to 1958:
|Jim Gregson, Goalkeeper||Over 6
feet tall, commanded his area and had a
great pair of hands, very good at his job.
|Stan Waters, Right Winger.||Stan was very fast and tricky olso a great
striker of the ball. Defenders hated to play against him.
|Bill Barkess, Left half.||
The team regarded me as the hard man ,anyone
|The Smiths||There were also three brothers who played the season
before I joined
the club The Smiths. Leo was left half. Paul was right winger who was at the club before Stan Waters arrived. Jerry who was a strong centre half who was in the side before Alan Laxjoined the club.
be some sort of record three brothers playing in the same side?
[Note: the three Mason
brothers, Cliff, Eddie and Barry also played together for Seaham
Wednesday in the '60s.]
We used to hold our meetings in the Golden Lion next to the Theatre
chaired by CUD Trainer, picked the side. THEY WERE VERY LIVELY MEETINGS.
