Look , I apologise, in advance, if this kind of thing upsets anyone but I have been trying, since 2000 when I first bought this thing (PC), to discover what happened to my old football club, without success. I used to play with a team called GWR (It had been founded by employees of the old , original, Great Western Railway) Our home ground was at Vallis Way, West Ealing and I used to take a railcar from Ealing Broadway to Castlebar Park Halt on the Greenford line. We had , for the times, terrific facilities there and I had many friends, needless to say. I often wonder if the club still exists and would be very grateful for any information that anyone can provide.

cheers

Well there's a tennis club there:

Great Western Railway LTC
Castle Bar Park, Vallis Way, Argyle Road, Ealing London
W13 0DD (020 77237000 e2959).

Maybe worth ringing them, someone might know

Or try the 'Friends Reunited' website, they have sporting connections too, or if they don't they might be encouraged to start some....

One childhood sport, I am both glad and a little surprised to have survived, was brought back to my mind by this post.

The sport (not football) required for those brave enough or stupid enough, to run along the platform at Drayton Manor and jump on the (slow) moving goods trains.... Jumping off again at Castle Bar Halt....

Shambles, now I know why those trains were always so slow moving as they "ploughed" through a "swamp" of youngsters bodies along the tracks, (-:? Still I'll bet you enjoyed the "games", never even imagining how dangerous it was? Cheers

I must confess that I only did it once. I also killed a blackbird with a capapult in the elms growing along the railway embankment there. I only did that once as well.

Alas, although keen, I was not good enough to be picked to play football for the many teams playing locally. I did managed to get 'sent-off' while watching my friend play for the Boys Club team on Cuckoo Schools playing field.

I was behind the goal when two chaps from the visiting team lifted up the goalposts about a foot, then left me alone behind the goal. When this was brought to the refferee's attention, he assumed that I was responsible and ordered me off!
