Not sure about the Malin Bridge site belonging British Gas in the 60's.  Remember Brown Baileys at Olivers Mount very well. The Metro Vickers /AEI  site I think was known as Firth Vickers in the 60's and I played there a few times also. Further up Bawtry Rd on the same side was Edger Allen-Aerex and on the opposite side was Dunford Hadfields. Over the crest was Steel Peach and Tozer later BSC. 

I used to go to school at Meadowhead and remember the sports field at Jordanthorpe but never got the chance to visit there.

Also remember playing in Chapeltown, was that Newton Chambers ?

Wild guess,  British Gas.

We played British gas and they were on Claywheels lane just before you got to Bachelors.

The gas company's football pitch on Claywheels Lane was actually on British Acheson (later Union Carbide) property, their own being on Grange Mill Lane. Wincobank/Blackburn, Also on Claywheels Lane was the Hope and Anchor brewery football/cricket pitches,
