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 ....

Love to know where it is now, can imagine someone at the council saying years ago we'll keep hold of this will be worth millions when old Rolf croaks it lol

When you used to have to tie knots in your 'jamas, make a float and dive for a big block of hash just for your bronze medal......

 

Them were the days.

Going off the top splash at Sheaf was a rite of passage into being a big boy ..as surely has drinking..smoking and "doing it".

"...av a look at im..he goes offa top splash...."

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.

American civil.

I honestly thought that was a photoshopped image for the minute and was trying to figure out the joke until I realised that it’s just your normal everyday family snap.
