I also recall the Maccabbi pitch - I was there ( 1965?) when Mike and Bernie winters did the opening ceremony...we used to play up there on Sundays - the ball forever being hooted down the rocks!!
Names I recall included the Samworths, Bob Grimes, Malcolm Dixon, Triggs , Schofield , Dyson and others - there even used to be a changing room further up the Common...possibly 6 pitches in all.....
Can anyone out there remember the name of the passageway opposite Betney`s ??....also Allison`s bakery down the gennel..!!

Hi - I am one of the Trigg family - sister (with Jennifer) of Andy and Norman. Andy lives at Worrall now and Norman in Midlands - both were keen football players. We all went to Wisewood Primary - names I remember are Mr Greatorex, Miss Bates (headmistress), Mrs Scrimshaw (scary dinner-lady) and Miss Starling who I had a bit of a crush on! Remember Gissing family from Wadsley Park Crescent, Birchenough Farm and Audoires. Pity we all lost touch with each other after 11+ split us all up. My best friend was Janice Kangley who lived on Luke Lane. Remember bakery shop on Luke Lane and cobblers at bottom of gennel near there. Also used to play with someone who lived in the big Sea Cadet building but can't remember her name.

Hi there ..was your brother Andrew Trigg ? Went to Wisewood secondary ? If so , we were in the same class at one point . My grannie lived on Wadsley park Crescent and I knew the Audoires very well. Angela was a friend of mine for a few years . I remember the Gissings but didn't know them well . Janice Kangleys name rings a bell . I moved away from the area but I keep in touch with a couple of friends from Wisewood secondary and one of them has occasional contact with Angela Audoire . Which secondary/ grammar school did you go to ??

Yes my brother's Andy! He had a reputation for being a little monkey! (Still has actually!) He went to Wisewood Secondary. I went to High Storrs. What was your surname?

I was recently browsing Sheffield Forum and was very interested in the mention of a cobbler who had a small workshop in the village. His name was Ibbotson (not Harrison) and he was my uncle on my mother's side.

I myself attended Wisewood Secondary School and I would be very interested to have a chat with anyone who may have any connection with the Ibbotson family. They had a cottage on Stour Lane which was demolished years ago.

My maiden name was Hutton (Maureen).

I can't trace my original reply to your post as I am new to this, but here goes.

My mother's family lived on Stour Lane in the old Wadsley village. The family name was Ibbotson and my uncle Vic had the cobblers workshop. I often used to spend time there in the pretence that I was helping, but it was fascinating to watch and listen to the tall tales he used to tell with visiting customers, it was more like a Social club - he was such a character. Elsie Ibbotson was my mother. I am the youngest of two sisters (Maureen Hutton) my father was Alexander, he worked for Sheffield Transport Department tram driving during the second World War and thereafter.

If there is anyone out there with a connection I would love to hear from you should this attempt be successful.

I noticed the name of Terry Dooley whilst browsing through the Wadsley Village
notices recently and wonder if it is the same guy who attended Wisewood Seco dary Modern at the same time I did. It was probably early fifties. As I remember his name when a first knew him was Flanagan, but I recall we were told that his name was to change to Dooley. I would like anyone who remembers this time to get in touch. I was Maureen Hutton and lived on Hallowmoor Road on the Wisewood estate.

My mothers family lived on Stour Lane Wadsley Village, their name was Ibbotson. My uncle Vic. was the village cobbler - quite a character. I remember supposedly helping out at his workshop on occasions, I watching and listening to his anecdotes with the various people who visited for a chat as much as anything.

I have sent messages previously, but so far no response. Hope I will have more luck this time.
