Nostalgia: 1966 Claxby cup winners

It wasn’t just the national team celebrating a cup win back in 1966.

Claxby’s footballers beat Owmby 5-2 in the Innes Cup Final.

Pictured are: back row - D Clark, M Owen J Sharpe, C Cade, N Fieldsend, W Thompson; front row - M Wilmot, J Cade, M Sharpe, P Surfleet, and D Heath.

The report of the day tells us there was a hat-trick for M Owen, with the Claxby scoring completed by P Sharpe, one from the penalty shot and the other from a ‘fine shot’ into the corner of the net.
