“New kids on the block”

SLC open age football team 2011

This year the club have started a new senior football team, for the first time since the 1970s.
They play in the 4th division of the Eccles and District Sunday league and have won both their opening games. The team is managed by club leader Leon Warmington and assistant Mike Murray.

The photo below dating from the 1950s is taken from almost the same spot, at Lancaster Road playing fields. It was hand tinted by team member Jim Thorpe who is seated front right.
The team also included Bill Seddon who is standing just to the left, behind Jim. Bill is one of the senior volunteers at the club today.
