Goldonian Summer 1949

Goldonian Summer 1950

Our first season in Junior League football was quite successful, and we finished sixth in the league. Derek Morgan was top scorer,
and Bob Pegg and Peter Taber turned out for every game. A jolly good effort.
We applied for election into Division 1 if there were any vacancies, and once again we have been lucky. I am quite sure Mr. Maslin
must have said a good word for us! Thank you very much!
With our promotion of course, the competition will be keener, and the football better, so I appeal now to all members to support
