No owdlad cant say has ive heard of him. Iwas at woodbourn rd school when Carl Shutt was there and even then teachers saw what a good footballer he was.When we all moved up to waltheof there were four or five ladsall on the books at swfc.Three of them mel, charlie and carl all made it in to the first team.:thumbsup:

Just to note, i also had a mate who went to both woodbourn rd and waltheof who was the best footballer ive ever seen.His name was Steven Mchale and he lived across rd from me on Chelmsford st attercliffe.His uncle Ray played for sufc and swindon, but steve was without doubt more talented than any of the waltheof lads by far.The problem with mac was he liked the inside of pubs and even after been offered a contract at both sheffield clubs still let it slip him bye.See him down attercliffe sometimes in our old watering holes and i still go on about him wasting his chance 30 odd years ago.:thumbsup:

I was born top end of Bright Street 126 and well remember the area. Over the back wall which led onto Hide Street, (affectionately known as The Brick) a man called Bowler used to keep pigs and chickens which frequently escaped terrifying us kids. The Filesmiths was at the bottom of this road on Milford Street and close bye was the Wentworth which is still standing. I went to Carbrook County School and then on to Coleridge Road School, where 'Pop Naylor ' was still teaching up to 1962 when I left. Lants was definately the best chippy of the two, But can you remember when Jacksons went upmarket and introduced roasting chickens?.:thumbsup:

Thanks for replying Cheryl, I remember the name Mirrians cafe but not it's exact location. Regarding Carbrook County School, I'm afew years older than you (Left school in 62) but remember that the Head Teachers respectively were Miss Carr, Infants And Miss Middleton Juniors. The absolute 'Terror' during my time in the juniors was a certain Miss Renshaw. Any of them still there during your time?.

Does anyone remember the Attercliffe roller skating rink. Saturday afternoon was full of kids learning to skate, but evenings there was dancing on skates and some people were pretty professional at it. I thought I was too at 14 till a broken arm and a few days in City General proved otherwise

Definitely remember the roller rink. Loved it. Went there heaps. Remember mugs alley?

[Hey Old timer. Very interesting letter there from you. I remember all of that. The skating rink with with that that long strip you talked of i spent many hours in there on my bum It was known as The Mugs ally) remember] I left the Uk in 1963 for Aussie

Regards vera

Hi Vera,

Seems that we are the ones that remember the training area as 'Mugs Alley'. Loved it when I was a kid. Used to make the trip from Grimesthorpe often. My dad would take me down and then come and pick me up.

Where are you in the land of Aus and how long have you been here. I am at Albion Park south of Wollongong. Been here since 1970 and much as I love hearing about the 'Old Dart' wouldn't go back to live for quids.

Dors.
