Norman Deeley

Norman Deeley

Norman Deeley is gebore in Wednesday, 30 November 1933. 'n Talentvolle sokkerspeler wat hy in 1947 vir England Schoolboys gespeel het. Daar word beweer dat hy die kleinste speler ooit was wat sy land verteenwoordig het. Soos Deeley later uitgewys het: "Ek was slegs 4 voet 10 duim toe ek die skool verlaat, hoewel ek uiteindelik tot 'n groot 5 voet 4 gegroei het. Maar ek was nooit bekommerd oor my lengte nie. Ek het vaardighede en baie pas gehad. Ek het geweet ek is 'n goeie voetbalspeler om in die wedstryd te kom. "

Stan Cullis, die bestuurder van Wolverhampton Wanderers, het Deeley in 1949 onderteken en op 16-jarige ouderdom vir die reserwes op die ouderdom van 16 gespeel. Deeley het sy debuut in die eerste span gemaak in 'n 2-1 tuisoorwinning oor Arsenal in Augustus 1951. Die destydse span was Johnny Hancocks, Sammy Smythe, Jesse Pye, Jimmy Dunn, Jimmy Mullen, Billy Crook, Roy Pritchard, Billy Wright, Bert Williams en Bill Shorthouse. Hy was 'n byspeler in die span wat die Eerste Divisie-kampioenskap in die 1953-54-seisoen gewen het.

Deeley het af en toe 'n wedstryd in die binnekant-voorspeler gespeel, maar dit was eers toe hy in 1957 na die vleuel oorgeskakel het, dat hy 'n vaste speler in die span word en die plek van Harry Hooper inneem. Hy sluit hom nou aan by 'n voorspeler wat Jimmy Mullen, Jimmy Murray, Peter Broadbent en Bobby Mason insluit. Soos Ivan Ponting uitgewys het: "Hy vergoed grootliks in vaardigheid, vasberadenheid en dapperheid vir wat hy in fisieke gestalte gehad het."

Wolves het die Eerste Divisie ligatitel in die 1957-58 seisoen gewen. Deeley het daardie seisoen 23 doele in 41 wedstryde aangeteken. Dit het 'n spreuk van 13 in 15 uitstappies gedurende die herfs ingesluit. Dit was 'n uitstekende totaal vir 'n vleuel en hy eindig slegs tweede in Wolves se puntelys van die middelvoorspeler Jimmy Murray.

Deeley het sy eerste internasionale span vir Engeland op 3 Mei 1958 teen Brasilië gewen. Engeland het die wedstryd met 2-0 gewen en Deeley is behou vir die wedstryd teen Peru. Engeland het die wedstryd egter met 4-1 verloor en dit was die einde van sy internasionale loopbaan.

Wolves het steeds goed gevaar en in die 1959-60-seisoen 'n 2de plek behaal. Hulle het ook die FA Cup in 1960 gewen met Deeley wat twee van die doele aangeteken het in die sege van 3-0 oor Blackburn Rovers. Deeley onthou later dat hy 'n driekuns kon behaal het: 'Barry Stobart het 'n goeie afdraai na links gemaak en by die lyn aangekom en 'n kruisie ingeklits. Hy het die bal bereik net voor ek dit gedoen het deur te rek en te gly. Met die doelwagter wat die kruis gaan haal, het ek gekyk hoe die bal die doelwagter slaan en van McGrath af in die net terugkeer. Dit het nie regtig saak gemaak nie soos ek in elk geval sou behaal het. "

Nadat hy 75 doele in 237 liga- en bekerwedstryde aangeteken het, het Deeley hom in 1961 by Leyton Orient aangesluit. In sy eerste seisoen het hy sy nuwe klub gehelp om na die eerste afdeling te styg. In 1963 het hy by Worcester City aangesluit. Hy het ook vir Bromsgrove Rovers en Darlaston Town gespeel voordat hy uitgetree het. Hy het later by 'n gemeenskapsentrum in Walsall gewerk.

Norman Deeley is op 7 September 2007 in Wednesday in die dood oorlede.

Norman Deeley was 'n klein bal met hoë oktaan-energie en het nooit sy terugslag verloor tydens sy medalje-ryk medalje aan die einde van die vyftigerjare met Wolverhampton Wanderers nie.

Hy was 'n onomkeerbare dinamiese doelskieter wat veelsydig genoeg was om aan beide kante te floreer, en het uitgeblink as deel van die tweede kragtige kombinasie wat gevorm is deur die formidabele dissiplinêr Stan Cullis, wat gehelp het om twee opeenvolgende ligatitels en die FA Cup op te hef en Engeland erkenning te kry. die manier.

Daar was nooit baie van die bruisende Midlander nie. Toe hy in 1947/48 op skoolseunvlak die internasionale verhoog betree, staan ​​hy slegs 4ft 4in en word gesê dat hy die kleinste was wat ooit vir die span gespeel is. Hy sou inderdaad net 'n voet langer word, maar hy vergoed grootliks in vaardigheid, vasberadenheid en dapperheid vir wat hy in fisieke gestalte gehad het.

Deeley het moontlik as 'n tiener by West Bromwich Albion aangesluit, aangemoedig deur sy Throstles-ondersteunende pa, maar die seun het sy hart op Wolves gerig en hy het sy sin gekry, en het hom in 1948 aan die begin by die Molineux as amateur aangemeld. suksesvolle bestuurstydperk van Cullis. Niks het daartoe gelei dat hy omring was deur vergelykende reuse nie, maar die klein nuweling speel op 16 vir die reserwes en het gehelp om drie opeenvolgende Central League (reserwe) kampioenskappe te behaal en sy eerste professionele kontrak in Desember 1950 te behaal.

U is nie geneig om binne die eerste vyf minute te rus nie. My maagvlinders het daarna opgehou en ek het baie meer daarmee gevoel, gevestig en gekonsentreerd. Blackburn het wel 'n ordentlike vroeë kans geskep toe Peter Dobing op Malcolm Finlayson deurgeloop het, maar Malcolm het by sy voete gered en dit was hul enigste werklike kans. Ons het toe ook 'n bietjie begin speel. My taak was altyd om van die regterkant af in die boks te kom as die bal op die linkervleuel was. Dit het omgekeerd gewerk vir my doel wat die halfeindstryd gewen het. In elk geval, Barry Stobart het 'n goeie hardloop in die linkerkant gemaak, by die kantlyn aangekom en 'n kruisie ingeklits. Ek het in die middel ingedraai en Mick McGrath, die linkerkant van die Rovers, het saamgegaan. Met die doelwagter wat die kruis gaan haal, het ek gekyk hoe die bal die doelwagter slaan en van McGrath af in die net terugskop.

Dit het nie regtig saak gemaak nie, want ek sou in elk geval behaal het. Sodra die bal die doelwagter geklop het, as Mick dit gemis het, was ek net 'n paar meter agter hom en wag om dit in te tik. Maar eie doele is 'n nagmerrie om op die beste tye agter jou te sit, en hierdie was die grootste spel van almal. Dit blyk toe dat ek 'n driekuns in die FA Cup-eindstryd gekos het. As jy dit net gemis het, Mick! Ek is seker jy wens jy het ook.

Terwyl ek agter hom aanjaag en gereed was om te score, kon ek myself nie keer om die bal in die net te volg en in viering aan die tuig vas te klou nie. Ek het gewoonlik nie te veel gevier nie, nie soos hulle deesdae doen nie, maar 'n doel op Wembley is spesiaal ...

Toe ons ná die rustyd se fluit van die veld afstap, het BBC TV my gevra of dit eintlik my doel was. Lewe op die lug, halfpad! Ek het aan die land gesê dat Mick dit behaal het. Ek kon toe die doel opgeëis het, en ek sou my driekuns behaal het, maar ek het geweet dat Mick nie my raak nie, en ek het gedink dit was duidelik. Ek het ook nie geweet wat die lot vir my in die tweede helfte inhou nie.

Toe ons in die kleedkamer kom, het Stan vir ons gesê: “Hou aan”. Ek het gesien hoe hy sy hemp verander, want die een wat hy aangehad het, was besig om te sweet. Dit was 'n warm dag, maar ek dink hy was so senuweeagtig, want ons was gunstelinge en het dan die manlike voordeel. Hy wou nie hê ons moet dom foute begaan nie. Ons het nie daardie luukse gehad nie. Ek onthou dat my hemp ook nat was, alhoewel ek darem rondgehardloop het! Maar ons kon nie verander nie. Om eerlik te wees, was ek die vorige somer warmer toe ek vir Engeland op toer in Suid -Amerika gespeel het.

Ons het uiters bekwaam gespeel in die tweede helfte. Blackburn het ons nie regtig bedreig nie. Maar ons het nog 'n doel nodig gehad voordat ons kon sê: "Dit is dit." En dit het oor my pad gekom. Des Horne kruis van links na my toe. Ek het die gebied binnegekom en dit die eerste keer gehamer. Ek het geweet dit was in sodra ek dit vasgesteek het, en toe dit agter in die net raak, voel dit geweldig. Daar was selfs 'n mate van kontroversie oor hierdie doelwit, aangesien Blackburn beweer Horne was onkant. Maar wat gebeur het, was dat McGrath op die doellyn gestaan ​​het en hom aan die kant gespeel het, en hy het agteruit van die veld gespring en Des tegnies onkant laat. Maar die skeidsregter het toegelaat dat spel voortgaan. Na my mening heeltemal tereg toe ek behaal het!

Ons het ten minste self 'n doel aangeteken, eerder as om net die beker met 'n eie doel te wen. Niemand het te opgewonde geraak nie. Ek het net 'n klop op die skouer gekry en 'n paar handdrukke. Ek dink 'n bietjie van die glans is van die hele ding afgehaal vir baie van die seuns deur Blackburn, wat tot tien mans was. En ons was in elk geval altyd van mening dat dit 'n spanpoging was. In daardie dae was dit regtig. Nie een van hierdie individualistiese sterre nie. Om die waarheid te sê, die sterre was die spelers wat doelwitte gemaak het, eerder as dié wat hulle geëindig het, wat die lofsange gewen het.

Toe teken ek weer. Des Horne speel 'n kort hoekroetine en steek dit in die boks. Hy het 'n bietjie gemis en die bal het eintlik die paal getref en voor die doel uitgekom. Woods het probeer om dit skoon te maak, maar hy het dit ook misgis. Dit val my perfek op die vlug. Ek het dit goed afgestel en dit getref.

Ek het ure in die "Dungeon" onder die staanplekke by Molineux deurgebring om balle van die ruwe mure af te slaan en te oefen om op die vlug te skiet. Dit het dan vrugte afgewerp toe ek omdraai en dit netjies raak. Daar was net 'n klein vertraging toe ek die bal in die net sien vlieg en toe weet ek dat dit verby is. 3-0 teenoor tien mans. Ons het gewen.

Norman Deeley, wat twee keer in Wolves se FA Cup -oorwinning in 1960 aangeteken het, is op 73 -jarige ouderdom dood gevind in sy huis in Woensbury.

Huldeblyk het ingestroom vir die speler, wat tydens die goue era van die vyftigerjare as vleuel vir die klub gespeel het toe Wolves drie keer as topkampioen gekroon is.

Die heer Deeley word beskryf as '' 'n ware Wolves -legende '' wat alles in sy vermoë gegee het vir die klub - hy het 237 wedstryde gemaak en 75 doele in 11 jaar aangeteken.

Die voormalige speler Bill Slater, kaptein van die Wolves -span wat Blackburn Rovers geklop het om die FA Cup in 1960 op te hef, het gesê: 'Dit is inderdaad baie hartseer nuus - Norman was 'n uitstekende speler wat baie gewild was.

'Hy het baie jare by die klub deurgebring en baie doele aangeteken. Ek onthou toe ons Blackburn met 3-0 geklop het en hy twee keer gedruk het, en as ek reg onthou, het hy die skoot afgevuur vir die ander doel wat eintlik van 'n Blackburn-speler afgekom het voordat hy ingegaan het.

'Hy het 'n grap gemaak dat hy gedink het hy moet dit opeis sodat hy 'n driekuns in die bekerfinaal kon behaal. Dit is die lewendige karakter wat hy was. Dit is baie hartseer nuus en hy sal gemis word. ”

Die oud-speler Ron Flowers, wat van 1952 tot 1967 15 jaar by Wolves deurgebring het, het gesê: 'Norman was 'n uitstekende speler en ek dink hy kon omtrent oral gespeel het.

'Hy was 'n brutale kêrel, soos alle klein spelers, en hy sal vreeslik baie gemis word.


Norman Deeley

Norman Victor Deeley, sokkerspeler: gebore Wednesday, Staffordshire, 30 November 1933, speel vir Wolverhampton Wanderers 1948-62, Leyton Orient 1962-64 twee keer deur Engeland 1959 (een seun, een dogter) sterf Woensdag 7 September 2007.

Norman Deeley was 'n klein bal met hoë oktaan-energie en het nooit sy terugslag verloor tydens sy medalje-ryk medalje aan die einde van die vyftigerjare met Wolverhampton Wanderers nie.

Hy was 'n onomkeerbare dinamiese doelskieter wat veelsydig genoeg was om aan beide kante te floreer, en het uitgeblink as deel van die tweede kragtige kombinasie wat deur die formidabele dissiplinêr Stan Cullis gevorm is, wat gehelp het om twee agtereenvolgende ligatitels en die FA Cup te behaal en Engeland erkenning te kry. die manier.

Daar was nooit baie van die bruisende Midlander nie. Toe hy in 1947/48 op skoolseunvlak die internasionale verhoog betree, staan ​​hy net 'n voet van 4 voet en word gesê dat hy die kleinste was wat ooit vir die span gespeel is. Hy sou inderdaad net 'n voet langer word, maar hy vergoed grootliks in vaardigheid, vasberadenheid en dapperheid vir wat hy in fisieke gestalte gehad het.

Deeley het moontlik as 'n tiener by West Bromwich Albion aangesluit, aangemoedig deur sy Throstles-ondersteunende pa, maar die seun het sy hart op Wolves gerig en hy het sy sin gekry, en het hom in 1948 aan die begin by die Molineux as amateur aangemeld. suksesvolle bestuurstydperk van Cullis. Niks het daartoe gelei dat hy omring was deur vergelykende reuse nie, maar die klein nuweling speel op 16 vir die reserwes en het gehelp om drie opeenvolgende Central League (reserwe) kampioenskappe te behaal en sy eerste professionele kontrak in Desember 1950 te behaal.

Op daardie stadium was hy 'n regter helfte-'n middelveldspeler in moderne taal-en in daardie rol het hy sy senior debuut gemaak in 'n 2-1 tuisoorwinning oor Arsenal in Augustus 1951. Daar volg sporadiese geleenthede vir die eerste span, sommige van hulle in die binnekant-voorspeler, toe hy sy nasionale diens in die weermag voltooi het, en hy 'n voorspeler gebly het toe Wolves die eerste ligakroon in hul geskiedenis in 1953/54 gewen het.

Deeley het sy eerste doel vir die klub aangeteken in 'n pulserende 4-4 gelykop uitslag met West Bromwich in die FA Charity Shield die volgende Augustus, maar dit was moeilik om hom voor te stel dat so 'n klein man 'n gereelde senterveld in die vreeslik gespierde, harde plek sou smee. -loop -eenheid wat Cullis geskep het. Die slinkse baas van Molineux was egter nie lus om van so 'n talentvolle en besige kunstenaar ontslae te raak nie en teen die einde van 1956/57 het hy hom 'n uitgebreide lopie op die linkervleuel gegee, waar Deeley begin wys het om sy volle potensiaal te verwesenlik.

Daarna skitter hy op 'n somertoer deur Suid-Afrika, wat hom in die titelwinningsveldtog van 1957/58 laat sterf het as 'n plaasvervanger van die regterkant vir die ewe minuut plaaslike held Johnny Hancocks, wat die veteraanstadium bereik het.

Gedurende die seëvierende termyn, waarin Cullis se manne vyf punte voor die Preston North End in die tweede plek behaal het, het Deeley slegs een wedstryd gemis en 23 doele bygedra, waaronder 'n hewige spel van 13 in 15 uitstappies gedurende die herfs. Dit was 'n merkwaardige totaal vir 'n vleuel en hy eindig slegs tweede in Wolves se puntelys vir die middelvoorspeler Jimmy Murray, maar hy was nie 'n blote omskakeling van kanse nie.

Met sy onophoudelike beweging en skerp voetbalbrein, het Deeley vlot by sy mede-voorspelers aangesluit en was hy 'n integrale deel van Wolves se kenmerkende opbou. Hy was veral oortuigend saam met sy naaste vriend, die saggeaarde regter Peter Broadbent, en het ook pragtig gekoppel aan die geweldig onderskatte Murray, die vlytige linkerkant Bobby Mason en die ervare linkervleuel Jimmy Mullen.

In 1958/59, aan die einde waarvan die uiters invloedryke Wolves en die Engelse senter Billy Wright uittree, bly Deeley en sy mede-aanvallers ewe sterk as wat die Black Countrymen hul kampioenskap behou en ses punte voor die naaswenner, Manchester, eindig. United, wat nog in die vroeë stadiums van heropbou was ná die verwoesting van die lugramp in München.

Op hierdie stadium is Deeley beloon vir sy agteruitgang in Wolves se beroemde goud-en-swart met 'n volledige internasionale oproep, wat gekies is vir Engeland se lentetoer deur Suid-Amerika, maar het 'n skrale impak op nederlae deur Brasilië en Peru gehad en was summier deur die afrigter, Walter Winterbottom, weggegooi.

Op klubvlak bly hy egter net so effektief as ooit tevore en in 1959/60 het Wolves pynigend naby gekom aan wat hul grootste glorie sou gewees het - die eerste klub in die 20ste eeu wat die liga en FA Cup -dubbelspel gewen het. Nadat hulle hul Eerste Divisie -program voltooi het, was hulle bo -aan die tafel, met Deeley wat 14 keer aangeteken het, maar daarna het Burnley, wat hul laaste wedstryd twee dae later gespeel het, hersien.

Daar was egter troos teen Blackburn Rovers in die FA Cup-eindstryd, waarin Deeley die sentrale figuur moes bewys en twee doele in die tweede helfte in 'n gemaklike oorwinning van 3-0 behaal het. Trouens, hy het naby 'n driekuns van Wembley gegaan, want hy was gereed vir 'n tik om die telling kort voor die interval te open, net vir Rovers se Mick McGrath om voor hom in te skuif vir 'n eie doel.

Minder gelukkig, met die telling van 1-0 was hy betrokke by 'n botsing met Dave Whelan, waarin die heelagter van Blackburn-wat 'n fortuin in die sakewêreld sou verdien en die merkwaardige opkoms van Wigan Athletic in die Premierliga sou opdoen-'n been gebreek het. In die dae voordat plaasvervangers toegelaat is, het die besering die eindstryd tot 'n ongelyke wedstryd gemaak en Blackburn -aanhangers woedend gemaak, wat meen Deeley moes vir die uitdaging afgedank gewees het. Die Wolves -vleuel het egter altyd volgehou dat die botsing 'n ongeluk was, 'n standpunt waarmee die meeste neutrale waarnemers saamgestem het.

In 1960/61, wat sy laaste volle veldtog by Molineux sou bewys, het Deeley in goeie vorm gebly toe die span derde in die tabel eindig en 'n eeu se ligadoelwitte vir die vierde agtereenvolgende seisoen saamgestel het, maar sy ster begin afneem en in Februarie 1962, terwyl Cullis probeer om sy vervaagende krag te herbou, is die klein flankman bevry om by Leyton Orient aan te sluit.

Op Brisbane Road, onder leiding van die bestuurder Johnny Carey, het Deeley 'n kort, aanvanklik bevredigende Indiese somer geniet, wat Orient se opkoms in die eerste afdeling op die hoogtepunt van die kwartaal gehelp het. Daarna het hy slegs 'n handjievol wedstryde misgeloop, aangesien die Londenaars wat hopeloos verbygegaan het, nie in staat was om hulself onder die elite te hou nie, en hy het die Liga verlaat ná 'n halfseisoen van moeite in die tweede.

Later dien hy 'n opeenvolging van nie-ligaklubs, waaronder Worcester City, Bromsgrove Rovers en Darlaston Town, voordat hy in 1974 uit die spel tree. In die daaropvolgende jare bestuur Deeley die Caldmore Community Agency in Walsall en werk as rentmeester by Walsall FC's VIP sitkamer.


Norman Deeley - Geskiedenis

Norman Deeley – miskien een doel beter af as wat ons gedink het.

'N Klein stukkie Wolverhampton Wanderers-geskiedenis kan binnekort herskryf word ten gunste van die tuisgemaakte vleuel Norman Deeley.

Die in Johannesburg gebore held van die FA Cup-eindstryd van 1960 het reeds 'n prominente plek in die geskiedenis van Molineux, met sy doelwit vir die klub in liga en bekerwedstryde op 75.

Maar die totaal kan op 76 klik, danksy die noukeurige ondersoek van voetbalstatistici in Manchester en op hierdie pleister.

Daar word noukeurig aandag gegee aan een van die doelwitte waarmee Wolves Manchester United met 2-1 geklop het in 'n wedstryd van die Eerste Divisie wat in Februarie 1961 deur meer as 38,000 gekyk is.

Die boeke van die Wolves Complete Record waarna ons geneig is om te verwys vir hierdie aangeleenthede, het Ron Flowers en Shay Brennan (eie doel) as die puntemakers van die span van Stan Cullis en#8217.

Maar 60 jaar later word vrae gevra of die inligting korrek is, en die voormalige Express & amp Star-sportredakteur Steve Gordos speel 'n rol in die uitsorteerproses.

Ek het 'n e -pos van Tony Williams by die English National Football Archive gekry met 'n doelwit wat as 'n Shay Brennan se eie doel beskou word, en die skrywer van baie Wolves -boeke het gesê.

Hy het gewonder of dit 'n Norman Deeley -doelwit moet wees, en aangesien ek nog die plakboeke vir daardie seisoen het, het ek die Sporting Star -verslag van Phil Morgan gevind en dit lyk redelik duidelik dat dit vir Norman moes wees. Daar was geen idee dat Brennan betrokke was nie.

Die uiteinde is dat ek reken Norman moet 76 Wolves -doele op sy naam hê, eerder as 75, maar die ENFA het blykbaar ongeveer 1500 navrae oor puntemakers wat terugkeer na die begin van liga -sokker! ”

Verskeie van die vraagtekens hou verband met ander wedstryde uit die verlede van Wolves, dus sal ons moontlik in die komende maande weer na hierdie onderwerp kyk.

Geen melding gemaak van 'n verdediger se ingryping nie.

'N Kykie na die Goal Aces-afdeling van hierdie webwerf toon dat Deeley die 19de hoogste puntemaker in die geskiedenis van Molineux is en drie agter Terry Wharton op die 18de plek sal wees, selfs al word hy hierdie ekstra doel toegeken, gestuur deur United ’s amateurhouer Mike Pinner .

Die poging teen United sal hom ook die vierde topskieter van die klub vir die jare 1960-61 maak, 'n veldtog waarin hy saam met Cliff Durandt op agt doele staan, agter Ted Farmer (28), Jimmy Murray (25) en Peter Broadbent (14).


Atletiese loopbaan

In plaas daarvan om by die West Bromwich Albion -klub aan te sluit, geliefd by sy pa, is Norman Deeley gehuur deur sy mededinger Wolverhampton Wanderers toe hy 'n skoolseun was, en op 16 -jarige ouderdom het hy sy eerste wedstryde in die reserwespan gespeel. Daarvoor het hy alreeds die aandag op hom gevestig in die nasionale skolespan en met 'n hoogte van net meer as 1,30 meter lyk dit asof hy 'verlore is tussen reuse', aangesien hy vir hierdie tekort met tegniese vaardighede vergoed het. In Desember 1950 teken hy sy eerste professionele kontrak met die "Wolves", en as regtervleuel, wat aan die begin van sy loopbaan Deeley was, maak hy sy debuut in Augustus 1951 by 'n 2-1 tuisoorwinning teen Arsenal. . Daar het sporadiese verskynings in die eerste span gevolg, waaronder sommige as 'n halfskieter, voordat hy 'n bietjie bygedra het om die Engelse kampioenskap met ses ligawedstryde te wen nadat hy diensplig in die 1953/54-seisoen voltooi het.

Om 4: 4 in die Charity Shield -wedstryd teen West Bromwich Albion, het Deeley in Augustus 1954 die eerste doel vir die professionele span aangeteken en hy lyk nog steeds 'n bietjie eksoties vanweë sy klein grootte. Die langtermynperspektief was ook vaag, aangesien afrigter Stan Cullis wou hê dat sy span 'n spesiale fisiese teenwoordigheid in die wedstryde toon. Aan die einde van die 1956/57 -seisoen het Deeley na die eerste span gewerk en groot bereidwilligheid getoon om aan die linkerkant te hardloop. Tydens die somertoer deur Suid -Afrika kort daarna, het hy uiteindelik na vore gekom en sy deurbraak in die 1957/58 -seisoen op die regtervleuelposisie gevier - die vertrek van die veteraan Johnny Hancocks en Harry Hooper, wat in onguns was met Cullis, het die regse buitepos vakant gelaat. Deeley het 23 doele aangeteken, was die span se tweede beste doelskieter agter die middelvoorspeler Jimmy Murray en het die Engelse kampioenskap gewen. Toegerus met 'n bogemiddelde spelintelligensie, was Deeley en sy vriend en ook tegnies vaardige Peter Broadbent die beginpunt vir die vinnige bouwedstryd om dit te doen. In die daaropvolgende seisoen het Deeley die ligatitel met die Wolves verdedig, veral in 1959 het hy Mullen dikwels na links ontwyk. Op die hoogtepunt van sy kreatiewe krag, tydens 'n toer deur Suid-Amerika in Mei 1959, speel hy ook twee A-wedstryde vir Engeland, maar hulle eindig met 0: 2 (teen Brasilië in die Maracanã-stadion) en 1: 4 (teen Peru in die Estadio Nacional) het albei verlore gegaan en veroorsaak dat afrigter Walter Winterbottom Deeley in die toekoms laat vaar het.

Deeley het 'n derde Engelse kampioenskapstitel met die Wolverhampton Wanderers in die 1959/60 seisoen amper misgeloop. Maar hy het twee doele in die FA Cup-eindstryd bygedra tot die 3-0 eindoorwinning teen Blackburn Rovers en Deeley word in verskeie opsigte as 'n beslissende speler beskou, terwyl hy die teenstander Dave Whelan in die 43ste minuut geklop het toe die telling 1-0 was. been gebreek en die Rovers is erg benadeel - plaasvervangers was nog nie toegelaat nie. In die seisoen 1960/61 kom Deeley vir die vierde agtereenvolgende keer op 'n dubbelsyfer-doelopbrengs, maar stadigaan kom die beste tyd tot 'n einde. In Februarie 1962 word hy die slagoffer van uitgebreide veranderinge in die span en verhuis hy na Leyton Orient in Londen.

Met die nuwe klub het Deeley geslaag in die oorblywende wedstryde van promosie na die hoogste Engelse afdeling, maar in sy laaste seisoen 1962/63 as 'n beroepspersoon kon hy nie die direkte terugkeer na die tweede afdeling keer nie. Sy laaste stop was in die laer ligas van Worcester City (162 mededingende optredes, 44 doele), die Bromsgrove Rovers en Darlaston FC, waar hy sy aktiewe loopbaan in 1974 beëindig het. Deeley werk toe by die Caldmore Community Center in Walsall en woon in Woensbury , die stad van sy geboorte, tot sy dood in September 2007.

Oudste ter wêreld

Ons spreker Dinsdagaand (27 November) is Duncan Close van Sanquhar, wat ons 'n bietjie sal vertel oor die oudste poskantoor ter wêreld.

Die Sanquhar -poskantoor is lank reeds aanvaar as die oudste in Brittanje. Dit is sedert 1712 werksaam en word tans beskou as die oudste ter wêreld.
Teen die tyd dat die poskantoor begin het, was die krone van Engeland en Skotland nie lank verenig nie. Daar was aansienlike aktiwiteite in die grensgebiede van albei lande en een van die belangrikste en invloedrykste gesinne van die dag was die Crichton -familie, wat die Sanquhar -kasteel besit het.
In 1712 is 'n diens bekend as die "Nithsdale-dwarspos" gestig, met poslopers te perd wat boodskappe lewer aan die landgenote aan weerskante van die Skotsk-Engelse grens.
Toe Robert Burns in die laaste deel van die 18de eeu geleef het, was hy baie bevriend met die eienaar van die Sanquhar -poskantoor, en die kaggel in die woonkamer van die gebou is gemaak van elmbome wat deur Burns op sy plaas op Ellisland Farm gegroei het , naby Dumfries.

Kom Dinsdagaand saam en leer meer.

Kilmarnock Tydskrifte

Kilmarnock Periodicals (1815 – 1900) is een van die spesiale versamelings van die Burns Monument Center en#8217.

Dit is 'n byna volledige versameling van die tydskrifte wat van 1816 tot 1900 in Kilmarnock gedruk is (dit bevat ook The Ayrshire Magazine en West Country Monthly Repository, wat in 1815 in Irvine gedruk is).


Veral die vroeë tydskrifte bied 'n interessante blik op die destydse literêre toneel van die stad. Die meeste van hulle bevat oorspronklike gedigte, verhale, essays en resensies deur skrywers met 'n mate van verband met die omgewing. Byvoorbeeld, die Kilmarnock jaarlikse en Westerse literêre jaarlikse (1835) bevat twee liedjies deur John Galt.
Sommige van die belangrikste drukkers van die stad het in 'n stadium periodieke drukwerk gedoen. Byvoorbeeld, H. Crawford (wat die volgende drukker in die stad was nadat John Wilson na Ayr vertrek het), gedruk Die Ayrshire Miscellany vanaf 1817. 'n Rukkie later het James McKie 'n paar titels gedruk, waaronder Die Ayrshire Inspirer (1839). D. Brown en Company, wat baie Burns-boeke van die 1880's tot die 1900's gedruk het, het die Burns-geïnspireerde vervaardig Auld Killie (1893 – 1898).


The FitzGeralds of Carton House en vorm 'n diep disfunksionele gesin: die ondergang en val van die hertogte van Leinster

Die fondamente vir hierdie boeiende boek is moontlik gemaak deur die ontdekking van 'n kasbriewe wat geskryf is deur Hermione Duncombe, die vrou van Gerald FitzGerald, die vyfde hertog van Leinster (1851-1893).

Die FitzGeralds, een van Ierland se voorste aristokratiese gesinne, het amper 300 jaar in die Palladiaanse herehuis Carton House, buite Maynooth, in Co Kildare gewoon. Hermione se briewe, wat in Somerset Record Office gestort is, het Dooley, wat baie oor die grondvraagstuk en die agteruitgang van die groot huise in Ierland geskryf het, in staat gestel om die private dimensies wat gepaard gegaan het met die openbare krisis wat die Anglo-Ierse aristokrasie geteister het in die laat 19de en vroeë 20ste eeu, namate sosiale, ekonomiese en politieke verandering die mag, oorheersing en opsies daarvan verdun het.

The Decline and Fall of the Dukes of Leinster, 1872-1948: Liefde, oorlog, skuld en waansin

Die familie was afkomstig van die Anglo-Normandiese FitzGeralds en was sedert die vroeë 13de eeu teen die laat 17de eeu in Kildare, wat in die hart van Anglo-Ierse sake gestig is. Maar toe Gerald volwasse word, in 1872, was daar verandering in die lug, en oor die volgende 50 jaar het nasionalistiese revolusies, in land en politiek, die eerste Wêreldoorlog en die Ierse Onafhanklikheidsoorlog gepaard gegaan met die privaat ervaring van die gesin wat in die ondertitel van die boek uitbasuin word, insluitend “liefde, skuld en waansin”. Die realiteit is egter dat daar baie min liefde is, dit was 'n diep disfunksionele gesin wat vernietig is deur voorreg en gebrek aan liefde.

Toe Gerald hertog word, was die landgoed van Leinster meer as 28.000 hektaar en het dit £ 40.000 in landbouhuur opgelewer (£ 3 miljoen in 2014), maar beheptheid met voorkoms en die begeerte om die kontinuïteit van die historiese status van die FitzGeralds te verseker, beteken dat "uiterlike vertoning" was baie belangriker as bekostigbaarheid ”. Arrogante ambisies en snobisme het groot skuld opgelewer.

Die landgoed was 'n groot werkgewer en van kritieke belang vir die plaaslike ekonomie, wat self 'n hiërargie geskep het, met ryker werknemers wat eiendom koop, en die opkoms van die 'winkelokrasie', saam met sukkelende huurders en laer-betaalde werknemers.

Hulle gesamentlike aspirasies en frustrasies verseker die periode van Gerald se hertogdom "verteenwoordig die skemering van paternalisme en eerbied op die landgoed Leinster". Die opkoms van die Leinster Tenants Defense Association in 1872 en omstredenheid oor huurkontrakte het die idee van die FitzGeralds as paternalisties veroorsaak, en die leen op die sterkte van die groot eiendom het problematies geword.

Die verhaal van hierdie krisisse verskuif na miskien die interessantste deel van hierdie boek, wat die wanhopige ongelukkigheid van Hermione in haar huwelik met Gerald ("hy gebruik klein tirannie") en haar oneindige eensaamheid dek.

Sy vat haar ellende saam in 'n brief aan haar suster: "Ek het niks om my energie aan te bestee nie, geen voorwerp of doel in die lewe nie, geen groot belangstelling nie". Deur depressie, wat sy 'die swart honde' genoem het, het sy gesmag na afleiding, wat gelei het tot 'n verhouding met Hugo Charteris, 'n humeurige dobbelaar, wat haar afskuwelik behandel het.

Skandalig, het Hermione in 1892 geboorte geskenk aan hul buite -egtelike seun, Edward, nadat sy al twee seuns, Maurice en Desmond, by Gerald gehad het, hoewel dit gerieflik was, maar toe nie besonder ongewoon nie, het sy weer in die huwelik ingeglip en Gerald is 'n jaar oorlede. later.

Dooley erken leemtes in die argiefrekord, baie briewe “gooi soveel vrae as wat hulle antwoorde gee”, en hy wend hom soms aan vermoedens en popsielkunde om hom voor te stel wat Hermione gedryf het. Dit is onnodig, want watter ambivalensie ook al bestaan, word meer as swaarder as die duidelikheid van haar wanhoop en wat sy beskryf as haar morele blindheid.

Openbaarbaar, "het sy in geen van haar briewe melding gemaak van haar kommer oor openbare aangeleenthede of openbare pligte nie". Tuberkulose en dood op 30 -jarige ouderdom het gevolg.

Boedeltruste was nou nodig totdat Hermione se oudste seun, Maurice, in 1908 sy meerderheid bereik het, en die hooftrustee was die broer van Gerald, Lord Frederick, wat geen persoonlike dokumente agtergelaat het nie, maar wat die laaste van die Kildare FitzGeralds was wat 'n openbare verteenwoordiger geword het, as lid van die Kildare County Council.

Met die Wyndham Act (1903), wat staatsfinansierde oordrag van boedels aan huurders vergemaklik het, staan ​​Frederick ook voor die verkoop van die Leinster-landgoed. Daar is onvermydelik ook leemtes in hierdie vertelling, omdat geen boedelverhurings of rekeninge oorleef het nie, “en ook niks bekend is oor die werklike besluitnemingsproses rakende die verkoop van die boedel nie”. Maar daar was groot media -belangstelling in die verkoop daarvan vir £ 754,000 (£ 73 miljoen in vandag se waardes), en dit vergemaklik die ambisies van die boere wat goed geplaas is om 'n nuwe sosiale status te koop.

Hierna was die probleem vir die FitzGeralds, wat die woonbuurte van Carton House en sy eiendom behou het, hoe die kapitaalbedrag uit die verkoop van die landgoed belê kon word om geslagte lank 'n goeie lewe te handhaaf. Dooley, with the assistance of the opinions of contemporary investment experts, is unimpressed that so much of the capital was invested in mortgages, but it seems dubious and unhistorical that he examines the portfolio in terms of good investment practice by today’s standards.

Dooley’s return to the private lives of the family is, however, once again fascinating, and less speculative. Maurice came of age with the ducal title but no vast estate. Profoundly affected by the loss of his mother, stricken with epilepsy and a victim of sexual abuse at school in Berkshire, he subsequently ended up in an asylum in Edinburgh following a nervous breakdown. Dooley uses a good range of sources to give an insight into his condition and the taboo around it throughout his confinement the focus of the trustees was on finances rather than his mental health. He died in 1922.

His younger brother, Desmond, had a very different experience. Educated at Eton and then Sandhurst, he was subsequently killed during the first World War, at Ypres. Edward, however, the seventh duke, was the “polar opposite of Desmond” there was great media interest in him, and he exploited fame for all it was worth, swindling money, signing promissory notes, facing regular bankruptcy proceedings and treating women cruelly. He was also introduced to Henry Mallaby-Deeley, “ an intrepid speculator”, who agreed to pay off his debts and pay him an allowance in return for Carton and the income from the estate.

Mallaby-Deely’s control over Carton was just as well he was “better for Carton than an impoverished and feckless heir would have been”, and feckless Edward certainly was – or, as he wrote in 1957, when he sold his life story to the Sunday Dispatch: “My road to ruin was the gay road – the road of mad parties, reckless friends and lovely women.” That road also involved four marriages, but “ruin” was relative.

In search of an heiress, Edward went to the US in 1932, married and became bankrupt for a third time, but he continued to live on an annual allowance of £1,000 from Mallaby-Deeley. He and his wife “could afford a butler, a cook, a housemaid, a between-maid, a Lady’s maid, a chauffeur and a part time secretary”. By 1965, however, the News of the World took pleasure in highlighting that he and his fourth wife were “living on baked beans” as they “dodged the creditors”. He lived until 1976.

Mallaby-Deeley was adversely affected by the Great Depression of the 1930s. His family decided in 1948, with the agreement of the trustees and Edward’s son Gerald, to sell Carton. Given the narcissism of so many of the characters in this book, it was perhaps an inevitable end to a fascinating saga, recounted with verve in this book.


Norman Deeley - History

Inleiding

In their 142 year history the England national football team have had a number of famous matches against South American opposition, most notably in World Cup finals games. In 1966 they drew 0-0 against Uruguay in their opening match before going on to win the tournament. 1970 saw Bobby Moore’s England lose 1-0 to Pele’s Brazil. In the 1986 quarter-final versus Argentina they succumed to the hand, and genius, of Diego Maradona and then 12 years later Beckham’s sending off and a penalty shootout loss against the same opposition in the last 16.

But against Peru their playing record is not so extensive. They’ve only played the La Blanquirroja (‘The White and Red’) only twice so far. But now a third game against Peru has now been confirmed. This will bring the team currently ranked 39 in the world to Wembley for a warm-up match for England prior to leaving for the United States where they will prepare for the finals tournament in Brazil with further friendlies against Ecuador and Honduras. The English FA were keen to test themselves against South and Central American opposition due to the fact that they are due to play Luis Suarez’s Uruguay in Sao Paulo on 19 th June following by Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte 5 days later. Although Uruguay are obviously a far superior team, holding 6 th place in the current FIFA rankings, it is thought that the meeting with Peru will bring useful experience against a team with a similar playing style and tempo.

The Peruvian national team are currently without a manager following the sacking of Sergio Markarian after finishing 7 th in the last South American World Cup qualifying tournament. This is despite an unexpected 3 rd place finish in the 2011 Copa American competition which was held in Argentina. A number of names have since been linked with the post, among them Diego Maradona and his fellow Argentinians Marcelo Bielsa, Sergio Batista and Julio Falconi. Home-grown candidates include the current coach of Peruvian Primera Division club Universidad Cesar Vallejo, Victor Rivera, and former Newcastle United winger Nolberto Solano.

Previous Meetings

The game on the 30 th May will be the first time in 52 years that the two countries have met and the first time on English soil. The two previous meetings took place took place in 1959 and 1962 and were both friendlies played in the Peruvian capital city of Lima. England had had a disappointing performance in the 1958 World Cup in Sweden having been knocked out in the group stage. However, they did manage to share the in 1959 Home International title with Ireland before leaving for a tour of the Americas at the end of the 1958-59 season.

The touring party was relatively inexperienced. The team was captained by 35 year-old Billy Wright of Wolves, who had won his 100 th England cap shortly before the tour. Only four other players had caps numbering in double-figures and three would make their international debuts during the tour. In their first game of the tour they lost 2-0 to Brazil in Rio de Janiero in front of a crowd of 160,000.

Peru had a decent side at the time and were ranked just outside the top 20. Earlier in 1959 they had managed 4 th place in the Copa America tournament and their team, with a mixture of youth and experience, had attracted much praise for its attractive play. They warmed up for the England game with friendlies against Lima club sides Union America, newly promoted to the Primera Division, and Ciclista Lima winning the former 1-0 thanks to a goal by Miguel Loayza and losing the second by the same score. The latter result brought much criticism by the Peruvian press who questioned whether the team’s players were really good enough to play against such an esteemed side as England and if the national side’s coach, the Hungarian Gyorgy Orth, was the right man for the job.

The game created much interest in the Peruvian media. Very few Peruvian households had television in those days and so the majority of the country got their information via newspapers. The England coach Walter Winterbottom spent two hours giving an exclusive interview to one newspaper in the Hotel Crillon, the England base during their stay in Lima. The 21 year-old Manchester United forward Bobby Charlton drew the most attention and commented that he expected a difficult game as it would be played outside of England and expressed concern that he would be up against a good defender in “Mr Benitez”. The game was played on 17 th May, a Sunday, and over 50,000 spectators turned up at the National Stadium to watch.

England made one change from their game versus Brazil with 19 year-old inside forward Jimmy Greaves of Chelsea replacing Peter Broadbent of Wolves to make his international debut. The England team thus lined up as: Eddie Hopkinson (Bolton Wanderers) – GK, Don Howe (West Bromwich Albion), Jimmy Armfield (Blackpool), Ronnie Clayton (Blackburn Rovers), Billy Wright (Wolverhampton Wanderers) – Captain, Ron Flowers (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Norman Deeley (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Jimmy Greaves (Chelsea), Johnny Haynes (Fulham), Albert Holden (Bolton Wanderers), Bobby Charlton (Manchester United). Both Armfield and Deeley were winning only their 2 nd caps, Holden his 4 th and Flowers his 6 th . The team lined up in Winterbottom’s favourite 3-2-5, or WM, formation with Armfield and Howe at fullback, Wright at centre-half and Flowers and Clayton and midfield. Charlton was the centre forward with Greaves and Haynes as inside forwards and Deeley and Holden as outside rights.

The Peru team was Rafael Asca (Sporting Cristal) – GK & Captain, Willy Flemming (Deportivo Municipal), Victor Benitez (Alianza Lima), Jose Fernandez (Universitario), Isaac Andrade (Sport Boys), Juan de la Vega (Alianza Lima), Oscar Montalvo (Deportivo Municipal), Miguel Loayza (Ciclista Lima), Juan Joya (Alianza Lima), Jose Carrasco (Deportivo Municipal), Juan Seminario (Deportivo Municipal). Peru coach Orth also used a 2-3-5 formation with Flemming and Fernandez flanking Benitez at the back and Andrade and de la Vega in Midfield. Up front Joya was the centre forward with Loayza and Montalvo to his right and Carrasco and Seminario to his left.

The game was referred by Erwin Hieger. Hieger was born in Austria and referred in the Austrian League before emigrating to Peru in the mid 1950s. He took charge of a number of matches in the 1957 Copa America under Austrian nationality but had become a Peruvian citizen by the time he referred in the 1968 Olympic football tournament.

Peru started the game very brightly and Howe and Armfield found it very difficult to cope with the movement of Seminario and Montalvo. The former opened the scoring in the 10 th minute and then added a second five minutes before half-time. Debutant Greaves, who had finished as the First Division top-scorer with 32 goals in the season just ended, pulled a goal back in the 58 th minute but Joya restored the two-goal lead nine minutes later. Seminario would complete his hat-trick after 80 minutes to make the final score 4-1 to Peru. Despite his three goals Seminario was actually criticized by certain members of the Peruvian media for his greedy play. Jose Fernandez was named man of the match with high praise also being received by both Montalvo and Loayza.

England had decided to wear a blue shirt for the game, for the first time since their disastrous 1-0 defeat to the United States in Belo Horizonte during the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. As a result of this thrashing the blue shirt has never been worn again by England. Each of the Peruvian players received a sum of 4500 sols for their performance against England. 2500 sols of this was received as salary from the Peruvian Football Federation with the remaining 2000 sols been paid as prize money by the local drinks manufactuer Backus and Johnston. England’s defeat resulted in much delight in Peru but much criticism back in London. Sam Leitch, the famous broadcaster and journalist, wrote in the Evening Standard “Imagine that indignity that Peru, playing with four good players and seven ballet dancers, and sponsered by a brewery, made England look like a panting novice.”

Norman Deeley’s poor performance against Peru meant that he never played for England again and Albert Holden won only one more cap, in England’s next fixture away to Mexico which they also lose, 2-1. England would finish their tour of the Americas with an 8-1 thrashing of the United States with Charlton getting a hat-trick in what would be Billy Wright’s 105 th , and last, England cap but overall the tour was considered to be a disaster.

As a result of their performances against England a number of the Peru team earned moves abroad. Victor Benitez was signed by Boca Juniors of Argentina in 1960 and then 8 years in Italy’s Serie A played for, amongst others, both Milan clubs and AS Roma. Juan Joya also moved to Argentina in 1960 to join River Plate and then spent 8 years with Penarol of Uruguay. Shortly after the England game 20 year-old Miguel Loayza was signed by Spanish giants Barcelona but only managed 10 games, scoring 4 times, before returning to South America in 1961 to join Boca Juniors. He then played for 5 other Argentinian clubs, including River Plate, before finishing his playing career with Colombian side Deportivo Cali. Hat-trick hero Juan Seminario earned a move to Sporting Lisbon of Portugal before joining Real Zaragoza of Spain. His 33 goals in the 1961-62 season brought him to the attention of Serie A club Fiorentina. He returned to Spain in 1964 to play for first Barcelona and then CE Sabadell before finishing his career back in Peru.

At the time the Peruvian FA refused to select players who played outside of Peru for their national team and so Seminario, Benitez, Loayza and Joya never appeared for the Peruvian national team again after the England game although Juan Joya later played one game for Uruguay. Other players moved abroad a few years later. Isaac Andrade played for various clubs in Argentina between 1962 and 1969, Oscar Montalvo played for Deportivo La Coruna in Spain in the mid 1960s. They would also end their international careers with these moves. The Peru team of the 1960s could easily have rivaled those of the 1930s and 1970s had all these players been able to represent their country but as it was they failed to make much of an impression during that decade.

In May 1962 England returned to Lima for a second international game against Peru which would act as a warm-up to the World Cup which was to be held in neighbouring Chile shortly afterwards. Walter Winterbottom was still in charge of the England team and a number of players from the 1959 game were still present – Jimmy Armfield, Ron Flowers, Jimmy Greaves, Johnny Haynes and Bobby Charlton. The full England line-up was: Ron Springett (Sheffield Wednesday) – GK, Jimmy Armfield (Blackpool), Ray Wilson (Huddersfield Town), Bobby Moore (West Ham United), Maurice Norman (Tottenham Hotspur), Ron Flowers (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Bryan Douglas (Blackburn Rovers), Jimmy Greaves (Tottenham Hotspur), Gerry Hitchens (Inter Milan), Johnny Haynes (Fulham) – Captain, Bobby Charlton (Manchester United). Both Moore and Norman were making their England debuts.

This time England played with a 4-2-4 formation which was much in fashion at that time. The fullbacks were Armfield and Wilson with Moore and Norman, the debutants, at centre-half. Charlton and Flowers made up the midfield and up front were Douglas on the wing, Hitchens at centre-forward with Greaves and Haynes as inside forwards outside him.

This was the first senior international for the Peruvian national team since losing to Colombia in the South American qualifiers the previous May and six players made their Peru debut versus England – Guzman, Bazan, Lobaton, Mosquera, Zevallos, Zegarra. Donayre won his 2 nd Peru cap, nine years after his 1 st . The team was coached, for the first time, by the Brazilian Jaime de Almeyda who was also the manager of Alianza Lima at the time. To warm up for the England game Peru had played two friendlies against Spanish club Real Zaragoza who featured Juan Seminario, hat-trick hero from the 1959 game and reigning La Liga top-scorer, in their side. They also had another Peruvian in their ranks, veteran defender Guillermo Delgado. Seminario scored twice in a 4-1 Zaragoza win in the first game but Peru won 3-1 in the second.

The Peru team was: Rodolfo Bazan (Alianza Lima) – GK, Willy Flemming (Deportivo Municipal), Adolfo Donayre (Alianza Lima), Rodolfo Guzman (Alianza Lima), Juan de la Vega (Alianza Lima) – captain, Manuel Grimaldo (Alianza Lima), Víctor Zegarra (Alianza Lima), Nicolas Nieri (Sporting Cristal), Hugo Lobaton (Sporting Cristal), Alejandro Zevallos (Centro Iqueno), Oscar Montalvo (Deportivo Municipal). Later on in the game Humberto Arguedas of Universitario would replace de la Vega and Nemesio Mosquera, also of Universitario, replaced Zegarra. Flemming, de la Vega and Montalvo remained from the previous meeting in 1959.

De Almeyda had hoped to include Guillermo Delgado and Juan Seminario from the touring Real Zaragoza, who had agreed to release them, as well as other Peruvians playing overseas such as Juan Joya and Miguel Loayza but was refused permission to do so by the Peruvian FA. They argued that they had to take into account the long-term future of the national side and not consider the result of just one game.

The game, at 3:45 pm on the 20 th May at the National Stadium in Lima, was attended by around 32,000 spectators. The referee, as for the game 3 years previously, was Erwin Hieger. England played far better than in 1959 and the young debutant centre-halfs Moore and Norman were rarely troubled despite the good play from Montalvo and Zegarra in the Peruvian attack. After quarter of an hour England were awarded a penalty which was converted by Flowers. Greaves then scored a hat-trick between the 24 th and 40 th minute giving England a 4-0 half-time lead. The England forwards continued to torment the Peruvian defence in the second half and nly a fine performance by Bazan in the Peru goal prevented further English goals. After the game the England team attended a reception at the Lima Cricket club hosted by local English residents. They then left for the World Cup in Chile where they would be defeated in the quarter-finals by eventual champions Brazil.

Expatriate players

Nolberto Solano is by far the most succesful Peruvian player to have plied his trade in the English leagues. After moving from Boca Juniors to Newcastle United in 1998 to became the first ever Peruvian to appear for an English club he made 240 appearances, scoring 45 goals, in two highly succesful spells with the Tyneside club punctuated by a season with Aston Villa where he finished as the club’s player of the season.

After leaving Newcastle he spent a season with West Ham United before leaving for short stints in Greece with Larissa and back home in Peru with Universitario. In 2010 he returned to the English game when he signed for Leicester City and later that year moved to Hull City before finished his career at Hartlepoool United. During the latter part of his time at Hartlepool he also combined his playing career with coaching duties at Northern League side Newcastle Benfield.

In 2000 Ysrael Zuniga became the 2 nd Peruvian to play in England when he joined Coventry City, then of the Premier League, for £750,000 in January 2000 following a very debut succesful season with FBC Melgar of Arequipa in which he scored 32 goals. Zuniga was almost joined at Coventry by his Melgar team-mate Walter Zeballos but that transfer broke down due to passport problems.

During the 2 nd half of the 1999-2000 season Zuniga scored two goals, against Bradford City and Sheffield Wednesday, in 6 games. The following season he found the net only once in 15 league appearances, against Manchester United at Highfield Road, and Coventry ended up relegated. Another goal came in the League Cup away to Preston North End. In total he managed only 4 goals in 30 appearances with the Midlands club before moving to Estudiantes of Argentina.

On 1 st July 2007 two more Peruvian footballers moved to England – Claudio Pizarro and Miguel Mostto. Striker Claudio Pizarro had spent a number of succesful seasons playing in the Bundesliga scoring 100 goals in 240 games with first Werder Bremen and then Bayern Munich before joining Chelsea on a free transfer. He got off to a promising start, scoring on his Premier League debut as Chelsea beat Birmingham City 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

However, following Jose Mourinho’s replacement by Avram Grant Pizarro fell out of favour and moved further down the striking pecking order after Chelsea signed Nicholas Anelka in January 2008. He managed only one other goal in Chelsea colours, also against Birmingham City in the return match at St. Andrews. He finished with a record of 2 goals in 31 appearances, the majority of them as substitute. The following season he returned to Werder Bremen for a very succesful loan spell and re-signed for them permanantly in 2009.

Miguel Mostto finished at the top scorer in the Peruvian Primera Division in both 2005 and 2006 scoring 18 and 22 goals respectively. His goalscoring exploits resulted in him being signed by Championship side Barnsley for a fee in the region of £350,000-£400,000. His only goal in 14 appearances during the 2007-08 season came with a second-half equaliser at home to Burnley in October. In January 2008 he was allowed to join Peruvian club Coronel Bolognesi for the rest of the season. The following season Mostto struggled with personel problems as a result of his young son’s serious illness and homesickness because his family had stayed in Peru. Barnsley allowed him to go back to Peru for a short period to deal with these matters but he returned briefly to England and scored his second goal for the club in the home match versus Watford in November. In January 2009 he returned to Peru permanently when he joined Total Chalaco.

The last Peruvian to appear for an English club, up till now, was Diego Penny. Unlike the previous players, who were all forwards, Penny was a goalkeeper. After making 180 appearances for Coronel Bolognesi from the southern Peruvian city of Tacna between 2004 and 2008, during which time he was also called up for the national team, the 24 year-old Penny signed for Championship side Burnley. He made his debut for Burnley in the opening game of the 2008-09 season but a 4-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday resulted in him losing his position to Brian Jensen for the rest of the season. Burnley ended the season by being promoted to the Premier League via the playoffs.

Penny made his only top-flight appearance when he replaced the injured Jensen after 15 minutes in the home game against Wigan Athletic in October 2009. The score was 1-1 at that time but Burnley would go on to lose 3-1. This would be his last appearance for the Lancashire club although he had also played 2 games in the League Cup earlier that season. He started the 2 nd Round tie against Hartlepool United, which Burnley won 2-1, and again replaced the injured Brian Jensen, this time in the 34 th minute, in the 3-2 defeat away to Barnsley in the following round. He left Burnley by mutual consent at the start of the following season following their relegation from the Premier League and signed for Peruvian club Juan Aurich a short time later.

Like Penny, Mark Cook was also a goalkeeper. He started his career at Newcastle United playing for their youth and reserve teams. Nolberto Solano was also on Newcastle’s books at that time but would shortly leave the club for West Ham United. After leaving Newcastle United, Cook ended up at non-league club Harrogate Town. Meanwhile in June 2012 Solano started his managerial career with his former club Universitario from Lima, one of the big three clubs of Peruvian football. His first signing for Universitario was his old team-mate Cook who arrived in Lima to much attention from both the Peruvian and English media, and elsewhere. Cook was the first, and so far only, English player to appear in the Peruvian league in the professional era.

Cook made his Universitario debut in the 1-0 home defeat against Sport Huancayo at the beginning of September. His 2 nd game for the La “U” came two weeks later in Moquegua when the home team Cobresol were victorious 3-0. An injury to his finger then prevented Cook from making further appearances. Universitario’s poor performances in the Second Stage of the Torneo Decentralizado led to Nolberto Solano’s sacking and Cook left the club to return to England shortly afterwards.

English involvement in the early football history of Peru

There is much debate about exactly who introduced football to Peru. Some sources claim that it was English sailors who were responsible during their visits to Callao, at that time a very important trading port, in the late 19 th century by. The sailors would arrange kick-abouts between themselves and the local residents, known as Chalacos.

Others say that it was young Peruvians, or the offspring of English immigrants living in Peru, who brought the game back with them when they returned home after studying in England. Alejandro Garland (1852-1912) was a Peruvian-born writer and economist with an English father and an education gained in England and Germany who, in the early 1870s, tried to organise football games in a small park between the Exhibition Palace and the prison known as the Lima Panopticon. However, this was met with little enthusiasm, even amongst those locals who had also been educated in England, and after the War of the Pacific, fought between a united Peru/Bolivia and Chile broke out in 1879 participation in all sporting activities were halted.

English residents in Lima had already formed a number of sports clubs by that time with some sources claiming that the Lima Cricket and Football club was founded in 1859. Although football was part of the club’s sporting program it’s main focus was cricket. Similar clubs with an emphasis on other sports but with some involvement in football emerged later on. Regatas Lima, formed in 1875, was mainly focused on rowing whilst Lawn Tennis (1884) was the second oldest tennis club in the Americas. Ciclista Lima (1896) was initially only interested in cycling but introduced football into its program following the merger with the Association Football Club (1897) in 1917.

The first documented football match to be played in Peru took place on 7 th August, 1892 at Santa Sofia, a playing field close to the Jose Pardo Institute which belonged to the Lima Cricket and Football club. The game involved residents of Callao, captained by a Mr. Foulkes and a team representing Lima, captained by Pedro Larranaga. The teams were mostly made up of English residents with the remainder being Peruvians. According to some sources the result of the match was 1-1 with neither side finishing with eleven players. In 1895 an “international” match was played between a team made up from Peruvian and English residents of Lima and a team from the crew of the British cruiser HMS Leander. The latter team won 5-0 in front of a crowd of 3000. Similar matches also took place over the next few years.

Jack Greenwell, from Crook in County Durham, began his playing career with his home-town club Crook Town. In 1909 he played for West Auckland during their victorious campaign in the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy tournament, often refered to as “the first World Cup”. He then played for, and managed, Barcelona before managing numerous other Spanish clubs. When the Spanish Civil War broke out in 1939 he fled briefly to Turkey before moving to Peru where he became the manager of both Universitario de Deportes, who won their 3 rd Campeonato Peruano title in 1939 and the Peruvian national team.

The 1939 Copa America was held in Peru in January and February of that year with all games taking place at the National Stadium in Lima. Prior to the tournament four teams – Colombia, Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil – withdrew leaving only five participants – the hosts Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and Ecuador, who made their Copa America debut. The tournament format was that of a single round-robin schedule where all teams played each other only once.

Peru’s first game was against the debutants Ecuador and they won easy 5-2 thanks to a hat-trick by Teodoro Fernandez, managed by Greenwell at Universitario, and two goals from Jorge Alcalde of Sport Boys from Callao. In their second game, against their bitter rivals Chile, Greenwell used an attacking 2-3-5 formation and Peru won 3-1 with two more goals by Fernandez and another by Alcalde. The same scoring pattern was repeated in the 3-0 victory over Paraguay.

In their final match Peru had to play Uruguay, the strongest South American side at that time. Both teams had 100% records and so the game would decide the title. In front of a full- capacity crowd of 40,000 spectators Peru opening the scoring through Alcalde in the 7 th minute then Victor Bielich added a second after 35 minutes. Uruguay pulled one back just before half-time but Peru hung on to record their first ever Copa America title. Not long afterwards Greenwell moved to Colombia where he coached a number of clubs before dying there from a heart attack in 1942 aged 58.

MORE FROM GOLDEN YEARS

Sportsmail's nostalgic picture series Golden Years features the humble bus this week, with a fabulous new set of photographs from across the decades.

We begin with Motherwell players celebrating at Hampden Park in the 1950s, and take you all the way through to Sir Alex Ferguson's farewell to football in 2013.

We feature many famous names and teams here, and some surprising images too, like AC Milan players walking across a muddy Irish car park and former Liverpool manager Bob Paisley on Manchester United's team coach.

Please feel free to share any of your own memories in the comments section beneath this article, and we'll return next week with more nostalgia.

Here's a picture of a triumphant Motherwell team leaving Hampden Park after claiming victory in the 1952 Scottish Cup final. A crowd of 136,274 saw Motherwell claim a 4-0 win over Dundee, with goals from Jimmy Watson, Willie Redpath, Wilson Humphries and Archie Kelly

Old Gold | 60 years on: Wolves’ 1960 FA Cup victory

It was the eighth time a Wolves side had taken part in England’s showpiece football event and hopes were high on Wolves claiming their fourth FA Cup title in what was a golden era for the club.

Favourites heading into the final, Wolves had won the league title in the previous two seasons and had only been denied a third successive championship during the 1959/60 season by a single point to Burnley.

While their opposition, Blackburn Rovers, had not had a great year, finishing 17 th in their second campaign back in the top-flight. Wolves had also won both league games which had taken place between the sides during the season a 3-1 victory at Molineux and a 1-0 success at Ewood Park.

The 1960 final was one of the warmest cup finals recorded at the time, with many spectators having to be treated for fainting.

This led to the game being played at a steady pace, meaning the final wasn’t the most memorable spectacle in the world – especially for the neutrals watching on their TVs at home.

ROAD TO THE FINAL

Wolves’ long haul to Wembley began with a difficult third round tie against Newcastle United at St James’ Park which ended in a 2-2 draw, but Stan Cullis’ side were victorious 4-2 in the Molineux replay.

A one-sided affair against Charlton Athletic followed, before Wolves travelled to relegation-threatened Luton Town, ending in a final score of 4-1 to the Wanderers.

The quarter final paired Wolves and Leicester City at Filbert Street which the visitors overcame by two goals to one.

The semi-final was an all-West Midlands affair, as Norman Deeley’s goal secured a 1-0 win against Aston Villa at The Hawthorns.

Blackburn needed to overcome three replays to make it to the final, eventually beating Sunderland at Ewood Park, before reaching the fifth round with a 3-0 win against Blackpool.

A shock win over Tottenham Hotspur was followed by victory against heated rivals Burnley, securing Blackburn a place in the semi-finals.

The last-four tie, at Maine Road, ended in a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

CLASSIC MATCH REPORT

Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolves 3 (McGrath OG 41, Deeley 67, 88)

Celebrations rang around the gold and black half of the Black Country as Wolves lifted their fourth FA Cup trophy at Wembley thanks to a dominant final drubbing of Blackburn Rovers.

After a slow start to the game, Wolves began to gain control of the contest and seemed most likely to open the scoring, but it was Blackburn who had the first real chance when Bryan Douglas fired just wide of Malcolm Finlayson’s near post.

Finlayson was also called into action just before half time when he acrobatically denied a Peter Dobing effort, but it was Wolves who took the lead moments later when Barry Stobart delivered a teasing cross that Mick McGrath turned past his own goalkeeper.

Blackburn suffered a further setback just two minutes later when Dave Whelan was stretchered off the pitch and taken to hospital after suffering a broken leg following a challenge with Deeley.

Half-time: Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolves 1

Blackburn started the second-half strongly, but Wolves doubled their lead after 67 minutes. From a corner, Des Horne played a short ball to Ron Flowers, whose cross came back off a defender, but Flowers returned the ball to Horne and his cross ran through for Deeley to slam it into the net from close range.

Horne missed a great chance himself to make it three for Wolves when he was put through with just Blackburn keeper Harry Leyland to beat, but he failed to make proper contact and screwed the ball wide, while Flowers had a goal ruled out for offside shortly after.

Two minutes from the end, Blackburn’s misery was complete as Leyland missed Stobart’s cross and Deeley was there to ram the ball into the roof of the net.

Full-time: Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolves 3

Blackburn: Leyland, Bray, Whelan, Clayton, Woods, McGrath, Bimpson, Dobing, Dougan, Douglas, MacLeod.

Wolves: Finlayson, Showell, Harris, Clamp, Slater, Flowers, Deeley, Stobart, Murray, Broadbent, Horne.

Skeidsregter: Kevin Howley

Attendance: 98,954

When Wolves captain Bill Slater went up to receive the trophy, he was greeted by a crescendo of boos and jeers by the Blackburn supporters following the first-half injury to Whelan.

As Cullis took his players off the pitch, Rovers’ fans vented their displeasure by showering the Wolves players with orange peels, apple cores, stale sandwiches, plastic cups and general rubbish.

After being presented with the cup, Slater said: “We are terribly sorry about the injury to Whelan which was a most unfortunate accident. It took the edge of the game, but I felt we were making progress and just getting on top when it happened.

“Perhaps this latest occurrence will add weight to the case for substitutes to be allowed in the final. Blackburn played pluckily despite their great handicap.”

Millard Military School

In 1953, Colonel Homer Millard and his wife, Esther, opened the Millard Military School on Langlois Mountain. It was patterned after the Millard School that had been in Washington, D.C. In 1962, the school was moved to Bradley Lake in Bandon due to the increasing number of students. Colonel Millard died that year and Esther continued to deliver her quality education for another 19 years. The last class to graduate from the Millard School in Bandon was in 1981. Esther died in 2006 at the age of 96.

The Millard School on Langlois Mountain pre-1962. That site, along with the restored buildings, became “Langlois Mountain Retreat” and later "Highland Woods Group Getaway". Those of you who attended prior to the move will recognize some of the buildings at the above site. Some of you apparently penned your names on a wall in one of the bulidings this has been preserved behind a plexiglas shield. Notice the shield on the flagpole. This shield is presently at the Bandon Historical museum.

Randall Holloway identified the class photo as the class of 1961. He also said that “R House” (seen in the photo of names etched on the wall) stood for “recreation house” and the dog’s name in the top picture was “Benno”.Thanks Randall!

Esther Millard is seen in the photo addressing dignitaries at the school. Notice the cannon which Mrs. Millard donated to our museum. This is the same cannon seen in the color photo sitting in the museum. Because of the weight of the cannon, we have it on display in the gift shop which has a concrete floor (the other floors in the museum would not support its weight). This cannon was manufactured in 1859 by the French. It was captured in the Franco-Prussian War by the Germans. Its only link to Bandon history is its appearance at the Millard School. We think it is a beautiful piece of history and are grateful to Mrs. Millard for donating it to the Bandon Historical Society.

Bill Marvel, Millard class of 1965 has authored a very interesting booklet detailing the story titled The Millard School and Foundation and can be viewed by clicking the link on the title.

Ric Lewallen, Millard class of 1971, also has created several web pages devoted to the Millard School and the students that attended it. You can view those pages by clicking on this Millard Prep School LINK .

The Millards had quite an impact on the lives of many young people throughout their tenure at the Millard School. The Bandon Historical Society often gets emails from former students who attest to their positive influence. Homer and Esther are both interred in the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon.

The following listing contains names that the Bandon Historical Society has obtained from various sources. Where possible, the year of expected graduation has been included. If you would like your name added to this list, please contact Museum's Executive Director. If there is a correction needed on these pages, please contact the webmaster.
