My father and uncle played in this team. My uncle (Jim ‘Ticker’ Bray) was the goalie and my father (Bob Bray) is in the middle row, second from left.

  • My Parents and Sister moved to WGC in 1940 to enable my Father to take up the position as Staff Manager at the new Welwyn Department Stores, I arrived in 1944 and have spent my life in the Town. The Store Manager was a Mr.Eccles I believe and initially my family had a  flat in Howardsgate before moving to Handside Lane, where I was born. Unfortunately my Mother became very ill which obviously caused a lot of worry to my Father and with the stresses of his new job, he was unable to continue his employment, as he too became ill. I only found out recently that the man who replaced him was the Father of a friend of mine, a Mr Childs. I could write a book about growing up in WGC, maybe one day I will do just that while my memories are reasonably good.

  • My Granddad is third from left in the centre row. Man with the big forearms! Jim Humes was his name.
