Throwback Thursday (25/02/2016)

Following a recent "Flashback Friday" Martin Smith of Droitwich A.C has got in touch.

"Just looking on the website I came across the article about Smethwick Harriers and Oldbury AC. At that time I was a member and secretary of Smethwick Harriers and was involved with the merger of the two clubs. I also had the Harriers minute book for those years (1966) until recently. On 2nd Dec 2013, we had a reunion of old members and I handed the minute book to Brian Bird.
I think it now resides in the Smethwick Heritage Centre. Other members of Smethwick Harriers at the time were Ken Westley and Alan Smallwood (Halesowen)."
He goes on to add.
"I also have a photo of the Holly Lodge Grammar School Cross Country Team (probably about 1963). Bud Baldaro and I are in it."
