OMG, believe it or not, I walked down Nuffield Road as the sirens sounded, and then ran like hell, didn't want to be near the Morris. Can’t actually say it was that particular night, but possible as there was a lot of damage next morning. As I have posted before I brought a lad up from Brighton, top of the bill for weightlifting British title at the Morris middle of the fifties. We had a packed house and he smashed the record by a good margin.

My grandparents moved to Tackford Road, having previousley being bombed out in Crabmill Lane. They were only 200 yards from the Morris. Where were you living, Kaga, when the Morris got bombed?

Mr Blue Sky, Miles away at Tusses Bridge, but my brother was in the Fleet Air Arm in the Pacific, his girlfriend had visited my parents, I was 13 at the time. Time to go home, mum made me escort her, and the bloody black-out was on. She lived in Stoke.

Hi Binkey. I think the apprentice bed race was held at the old Butts Stadium.

I was searching through some papers and photos and came across this photo of my dear dad Ken McPherson, ex CCFC player who worked in the Progress Department at Austin Morris, Courthouse Green. He also played football with Harry Barratt who also worked in the main office block. The photo of was taken in New York during his football career. Edited by member, 14th Dec 2020 6:32 pm

I'm sure that Ken McPherson lived just down the road from us in Macaulay Road Wyken, during his playing years with CCFC. Were you there too, Dean?

Hi Dean I grew up at number 16 from the age of four in 1951, going to Ravensdale and then KHVIII, then at 1967 to London Uni. Between school and Uni I worked in the brand new computing centre at the GEC Copsewood. We would often say hello to your dad - and good luck for the match!
