Fitzwilliam beat Wath Central Thurnscoe Hill beat Wath St. Josephs
John HudsonSomeone scored a hat-trick. It was either Ian Rogerson or Andrew Wilson? I think Gordon Mckenning scored one, not sure about the others.
The teacher, who was the coach, was Mr Facer. He was years ahead in respect to sports science, from memory he used to supply us with a Mars bar each ( full of glucose and sugar for energy ) before some games.
Dan Taylor (Fitzwilliam) remembers “I played in this final for Fitzwilliam, alongside Andrew Harrison, Nicholas Thrustle amongst others. It was a pretty much one sided game, as the scoreline suggests. We played the semi-final at Swinton Brookfield where we won 1-0, with a goal scored from the halfway line.”
