I played Sunday League for this team in the late 1960s having been transferred from Woodbridge Villa. We changed in the pub cellar where all our kit was ready for us to change into, we travelled to the games by coach, and after the match several large piping hot tin baths were a welcome sight, this was luxury at this level of football, as many teams had to change pitchside having no facilities whatsoever. Our home ground was at Low Farm Sports Ground at the junction of Otley Old Road and Farrar Lane, a very windy location. I am 3rd from the right on the back row, but I don't remember the names of many others pictured. The most outstanding player in the team was Ray Partridge who also turned out for Farsley Celtic, and was a regular in the Leeds Sunday League side. He is standing far left wearing a cardigan, he was obviously injured when this picture was taken, as his name would normally have been first on the team sheet. The only other player I can remember is Rod Thewliss, 3rd from the left on the front row, I think he also represented The Leeds sunday League.
