Used to swim for Sheffield City back in the early seventies Dunsby

yellow n green cossies were the kit 

Hillsborough Baths 

Sutherland Road 

And Attercliffe 

Our arch rivals were Oak Street they swam in red white n black 

From Heeley they trained,

Dirty scrubbers only time they went neat water ...

True story.

saw Rolf Harris paint that Abo mural at Sheaf Valley ....

Would you believe that when we lived in S.Africa for 12 years until 1993, there was a football team in Soweto called Sheffield Thursday!

Crikey dunsby, me too. Must’ve been back in the early to mid 60s.

 

The firm my Dad worked for used to have a weekly swimming night at Sutherland Road and Mr Scott taught us. Had a bark like a Regimental Sergeant Major.

 

Same firm had season tickets in the north and my Dad used to get the occasional use of them which is how I ended up an Owl.

It's a miracle she didn't drown trying to swim in that!

 

 

P.S. I learned to swim at Heeley Baths, courtesy of Sharrow Lane school.

he didn't write it.  I think it is the oldest song to ever make number one.  Written about 1900 I think, possibly about the American civil war or the first Boer war, can't remember. Wonderful song though about comradeship and love for ones friends.
