Football in Broadstairs

A nice bit of feedback from my post “Britton the Broadstairs Butcher
“Well - I got as far as the 4th pic on your site (Broadstairs Football Team 1937) - and found myself looking at my own father.

Ernest (Joe) Darby (1914 - 2007) is the last footballer on the right of the pic. Nick”

Nick also sent me the picture above of Broadstairs Football Team in 1906, click on it to enlarge and click here for the 1937 picture.

  1. My father (Stanley G. Clark, 1915 - 2005) is in the 1937 Broadstairs Football photo too. I have a copy of the photo and the badge from Dad's shirt. My father had annotated the photo as follows:
    Back Row: George Bishop, W. Stannard, Len Wood, Stan Clark, Jack Carlisle, Bill Rudland, Norman Gore, Ernest Darby & Tom Stannard father of bill Stannard. Front row: Les Crampton, Reg. Harris, George Perry and Vic Perry. Les Crampton and Jack Carlisle both killed early in the war.

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
