Lido swim helped kick-start club

Back in 1976, the founders of our Club were faced with many challenges. Funds were needed to secure the use of the old Timber Lane playing field in Woburn for home matches, whilst the boys also needed some kit.  Subs were paid on a weekly basis, so additional funds had to be found and a sponsored swim at Woburn Lido was one of a number of creative fundraising ventures.

Pictured above is a similar event ahead of the 1991 trip to Florida, but does anyone have any pictures of the original event ?

Rental on Timber Lane was paid, and a kit was purchased…….. but not the claret & blue we now know.

Future installment to include details of that first match in that first kit with links ‘North of the border’.
