This photo was taken
at St. Bedes at Halebarns in the Autumn of 1967; it shows
the famous team that never lost a match in its whole
Two of the players, Macca McDonald and Tiny Walton, were
actually pupils at Oldwood Secondary, but as this school
was about to be amalgamated with Poundswick, it was felt
that they were eligible to be part of the Poundswick
Tony Pickford particularly remembers Dave Measures
playing on the wing: "Dave's out-of-school hobby was
velodrome cycling and he was extremely fit - we'd get the
ball out to him and he'd go off like a scalded cat!"
