  1. The Beatles first appeared in Sheffield in March 1963 at the City Hall (Helen Shapiro tour). They visited Sheffield four times that year (1963), the second being at the Azena Ballroom, White Lane, Gleadless in April.
  2. That pub was probably the Adelphi Hotel (Tudor Way). John Costello was the landlord in the late 60's.
  3. Mick McCarthy was born in Barnsley, I think he's going to like this confrontation,
  4. Thanks Jim , Ralph O'Donnell left under 'what cloud' from the Owls or the EA? Pete Swan's eventual successor was Vic Mobley (not bad eh ?) Thanks for the Ralph info Jim.
  5. Yes Ralph O'Donnell, he was understudy to Peter Swan for a while.
  6. Did her Majesty nip over to Handsworth from the Wybourn for a couple or three snifters ?
  7. Yes Jim, Billy was a school teacher-good for him- in Manchester (I think he was from that area). Can you imagine that happening now with a player playing in England's top division and that being their other job ? I recall another Blades player being a school teacher in Sheffield, Dennis Shields an Irish lad who lived in Pitsmoor and was there a teacher at Owler Lane school who was a semi-pro, Ralph ??
  8. Yes Mr.T but where were Courages' products brewed, in the chalk ridden waters of the London area or did they ever come to God's (and Geoff Boycott's) county ? ---------- Post added 28-02-2018 at 23:14 ---------- Yes Mr.T but where were Courages' products brewed, in the chalk ridden waters of the London area or did they ever come to God's (and Geoff Boycott's) county ?
  9. Yes I recall Worthington 'E', was that the same one ? And Courage,weren't they a 'Landan' brewery ? Cor blimey gavner ! ---------- Post added 28-02-2018 at 22:17 ---------- I will send you a few Quid if you will agree to keep Arthur Askey or even Max Bygraves out of this discussion.
  10. Didn't Whitbread's or Worthington have a slogan for whatever pint of beer they were promoting-mid 70's- 'It's what your right arm is for' ?
  11. The Hodson pub was on Carlisle Road at the corner of Draper Street.
  12. Lincolnshire and Warrington (wasn't that in Lancashire once ?). If you want to be a honorary Yorkshireman then I will gladly sponsor you but you will not be able to play Cricket for God's county. ---------- Post added 27-02-2018 at 00:36 ---------- To Derbyshire (as in Chesterfield) pintor ? ---------- Post added 27-02-2018 at 00:40 ---------- To Derbyshire (as in Chesterfield) pintor ? Well they might then have a good football team.
  13. Yes Mr. T but Harry Catterick (went to Everton) and in came Vic Buckingham and between those two, the Owls never finished below 6th in the old First division between 1961 and 1964. Imagine that now ? ---------- Post added 26-02-2018 at 19:30 ---------- Yes Mr. T but Harry Catterick (went to Everton) and in came Vic Buckingham and between those two, the Owls never finished below 6th in the old First division between 1961 and 1964.

  14. Yes Jim, it was Tom who was the club captain until 'Meggy' got it around 1965. I don't think his brother Jim made too many appearances as he was a similar player. Not sure if Gerry Young was a regular then (1961) either.
  15. You forgot Jim McAnearney and John Fantham from that line up and the Owls also drew 1-1 at White Hart Lane that season (1960-61), a Don Megson free kick I think ?
  16. Yes the Wheatsheaf. It was a Duncan Gilmour's pub and their brewery was next door and Tennant's (later Whitbread's) was on the other side of Bridge Street
  17. That place on Bridge Street was Weston's and became Gray's Motorcycles after they moved out.
  18. Yes Jim, I don't think Mike Doyle was the regular penalty taker, as they had Colin Bell, Mike Summerbee, Alan Oakes and Neil Young who could 'whack' them but City stuck to the 'script', well almost. Thought I'd post this as today's game v Villa, I'd rather not go into. Also weren't Manchester City the champions going in that season ?
  19. Perhaps Jim, (as you know) 'Riding' means three, the old Yorkshire being North, East and West. There was never a 'South' then so how did we get left out ? Perhaps Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster etc. was in the West Riding then.
  20. Yes Jim and didn't they do that with Kingston upon Hull (it's proper name) and made it 'Humberside' ? To me Hull is in East Yorkshire and Yorkshire CCC used to play first-class matches there. ---------- Post added 24-02-2018 at 01:12 ---------- Mooks, if tha' were born theer, tha't a Yorkshireman ! (Don Revie and Brian Clough were born there.)
