Richard Rawson: “The match was played at Denaby United’s ground. We lost 1-0 to Swinton Bridge. David Wren got injured so I had to go in goal. They were all over us. I got awarded the best player from our teacher, Mr Shacklock and coach. I got a ovation from the old men spectating that is my claim to fame. I cannot remember Goodlad playing that year the shield between davids legs is for winning the conisbrough and denaby league i have the r/u medal plus we got to use the big bath at the ground you dont forget the highlights of your childhood.”

Phillip Sanderson

“Rossington St. beat Balby St then won a very tight Semi-Final against St Albans 1-0 on their way to meeting Morley Place.

Morley Place won the other semi against the much fancied Station Rd. Who had beaten every one in the league matches.

a very tight final which went to possibly two replays was won by a solitary goal from Colin Pears.
some very good youth and adult players came out of those two teams.”

When asked what competition this referred to, Phillip replied…

“it was the DUFC supporters cup in 1959 this was played for by the junior schools in Denaby and Conisborough, think there was 5/6 teams they also had a sort of mini league playing each other twice, That along with the Totty cup matches, Queens st “A”  Thurnsco  “A” + replay before we came up against Geoff and his Swinton Bridge team, all in all a good few matches played that year,”
