Congratulations to the Angel team for winning Division 2 with one week to play. Come on Longmead you can do it as well to give us four teams in Division one next season. The last time we had three teams in that division was circa 1995 so four teams would be amazing.

ARCHIVES – GROUP PHOTO CIRCA 1935-1945
Member Rowland Wills has sent me this photo donated from his next door neighbour in Woodfield Road. She thinks that the period is between 1935/45 when her grandfather Walter Eades- Back row 4th from left was a member of TBC. Can any member help with establishing the year? The Cup does not look familiar perhaps we had won a local league? Gentleman on front row left might be Mr Markwick? Open neck shirts- looks post war to me when ties were more optional!
