Up until now, 30 April 2017, the above was the only information I had for this season.
The report below had been kept by my cousin, who had very recently passed away, and
was found among his family photos. It goes without saying that I would have preferred
to have received it in a lot better circumstances. My thanks to my lovely cousin
Josephine, for passing it on, and to Fred for caring enough to keep it safe for some
1974 / 1975 Season
The final season in the Houghton & District League and the club signed off in style
as Champions and Durham Hospital Cup Winnersagain.
This was the last season for Harry Clark and Norman T Taylor. Harry, who started
in 1967 continued his excellent service with the club until 1986 with roles which
included coach and manager. Norman started in 1964, the clubs second season, and
played some 410 games and was a member of the committee, in various roles, until
1999. He is now one of the clubs Life Presidents.
The only other information available on this season is the article below from the
Sunderland Echo in January of 1975.
