Peter Brookes: I played for the ‘National School’ (Mexborough St. John’s), probably in the 1957/58 season. We were coached by the hugely charismatic teacher, Fred Marklew. Mr Marklew had a Triumph ‘Mayflower’ and used to get the whole of the team into the car! We may not have played them in the Totty Cup but my main memory is getting hammered by Swinton Bridge captained by the great Frank Barlow with Geoff Salmons playing as well. It’s wonderful to still see Frank after all these years.
