OSFC Ex-players Reunion, 2013
A report from Ian Meyrick, & a couple of photos from Tim Westbrook…
Fortunately despite a wet forecast the weather held fair for the annual gathering of ex-OSFC players at the club on Saturday 12th October 2013. The event was well supported by many ex-players (listed below), ranging from those who had joined the club over 50 years ago to those that had played more recently
Keith Allen, Geoff Blackmore, Danny Bone, Don Bucknall, Terry Butler, Paul Cane, Nigel Clarke, Chris Davenport, Peter Derrick, Bruce Donaldson, Pat Dunphy, Roger Engledow, Liam Gallagher, Keith Hacker, Tony Hemmings, Dick Hersey, Marsden Hubbard, Dave Hudson, Brian Humphreys, John Jackson, Peter Jarvis, Alun Jefferys, George Jones, Mike Kassie, Bernie Keaney, Ian Meyrick, Steve Presland, Geraint Pritchard, Gordon Rose, Dave Sheath (President), Kevin Spence, Mark Tansley, John Taylor, Nigel Wade, Tim Westbrook, Peter Whitecross, Chris Wilkins... apologies for any omissions
The assembled "masses" were treated to an exciting 1st XI match against HSBC. We dominated the game for 70 mins, led 2-0 and should have probably have been further ahead, only for the opposition to grab two late goals to deny us a deserved 3 points. The other home games saw the 2nd XI lose 0-4 to Carshalton and the 3rd XI win 3-0 against Southgate Olympic
After the games the "supporters" retired to the bar to reminisce and tell anyone who would listen what good players they were and how things had changed since day!!
Look out for details for next season's re-union again due in early October 2014!
