  1. 1975-76. FA Vase First Round Wallingford Town 2 Melksham Town 0.
    WTFC then lost 0-2 away at Abingdon Town in the Second Round… but you know all this by now, I guessing… Colin Franklin was my PE and Geography teacher and Form Tutor, pretty much my only claim to fame…

    • Thank you for your reply squiredrew. This is the first comment provided for this post so appreciate the info. Mr Franklin was also my PE and Geography teacher in the late eighties (i was rubbish at both). Put your hands up if you enjoyed ‘Cross-Country’.. anyone?..
