BTH Offices football team 1944

A huge thank you to Hilary Curley, who has given Memory Lane a lovely selection of pictures to use over the coming weeks. The first includes her late father, Geoff Tye who is the team captain in the front holding the ball. Readers will probably recognise it was taken in front of the old sports club building, which stood in Hillmorton Road.

The Offices team won the BTH Inter-departmental Football Competition in 1944, beating the WMF team 2-1 in the final. The report he had kept with the picture lists the members, who were: P Baker, R Pollard, J Madden, G Tye, P Lutkin, B Booth, W Pulham, K Shepherd, C Watson, J Nichols and R Maton. The WMF team were: W Thomas, H Adams, W Kitchener, H Murphy, W Montgomery, R Stephens, L Cronin, R Stephenson, F Stoddart, L Souter (capt) and S Way.

Does anyone know what WMF stood for or recognise any of their relatives among those pictured?
