About this site


If you wish to get in touch with the author, please do so via the 'Contact' section. Perchance you will have some additional snippet to add to a mini-biography or correction to a statistic.  All constructive suggestions will be gratefully received.


The author is particularly indebted to Clive Shippen: his research led him to record the story of the club up to the Great War of 1914-1918; also to Steve Williams who gathered many statistics some 30 years ago; but we also owe thanks to all those many others who saw fit to record something of what went on in their day, whether it be a note or two in the minutes of our committee meetings, a report in a newspaper or a club gazette.

Information available from this site, particularly when of a statistical nature, will often be in the form of portable document files (pdf files) which are most suitable for printing. If using information from this site please quote the source:
