Our earliest team photograph dates back to the 1956 - 1957 season. The Mens 1st XI were quite successful this year recording results as follows:


Played 28, Won 19, Lost 7, Drew 2.


They also recorded an incredible 110 goals, whilst only conceding 50.

Eleven years later, the kit, equipment and hair styles look remarkably similar in this picture of the Mens 1st XI of c.1967. The team was still doing well,  recording results as follows:


Played 25, Won 14, Lost 6, Drew 5.


They also recorded a respectable tally of 70 goals, whilst only conceding 34.
