Below is the Mayfield Senior team representing Ilford Schools in 1960 in the final of the Dewar Shield against Heston. The game was played at Cricklefield and the picture was taken before the game, on a piece of land above the main pitch. It is now I believe a school and playground area. We lost this game 2-1 but it was one of those games that we should have won as we had most of the play but couldn’t score. Just out of interest it was the first time we all wore green shorts to go with our green and white shirts.
