  2. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Billy Best v Chico Hamilton QF4

    The last of the quarter-finals.
  3. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Colin Morris v Peter Taylor QF3

  4. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Roy Hollis v Bill Garner QF2

    Next up is two front men.
  5. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Peter Watson v Trevor Roberts, QF1

    I'll kick off the quarter-finals now with Peter Watson up against Trevor Roberts, even though we still have one tie outstanding (Halse v Hamilton). As players should by now need no introduction, I'll include a poll straight away.
  6. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Harold Halse v Chico Hamilton 2:8

    Last tie of the round sees one of Southend's first ever players, Harold Halse up against Jazz drummer1960s midfielder Chico Hamilton.
  7. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Billy Best v Gary Moore

    Best and Moore. Not George and Bobby, but the true greats of Billy and Gary, who formed probably the most famous partnership in Southend history. But which one makes it through to the next round?
  8. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Jimmy Evans v Peter Taylor 2-6

    Two internationals go to head to hear, Welsh international Jimmy Evans (the first player to be capped at Southend?) and Peter Taylor who went onto play for England.
  9. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Colin Morris v Derek Woodley 2:5

    Is this the weakest tie of the round? Persuade me otherwise by regaling me with your tales of these two.
  10. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Tony Bentley v Bill Garner 2:4

    Another intriguing clash as Tony Bentley is up against Bill Garner in the type of tie that I suspect would have made a good 50:50 on the pitch.
  11. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Eddie Firmani v Roy Hollis 2:3

    A cracking tie this one, as Eddie Firmani takes on Roy Hollis.
  12. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Trevor Roberts v Joe Sibley 2:2

    Second tie of round 2, Roberts v Sibley.
  13. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Sam McCrory v Peter Watson 2:1

    First tie of the second round throws up an intriguing clash between one of our best centre-forwards and one of our best centre-halves. You know the drill: post up your tales, I'll add a poll and if it then if it's still a tie, I'll judge it on the evidence posted on the thread (and then if I'm...
  14. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane SUFC's greatest players (pre 1980s) Results and Discussion thread

    McAlinden v McCrory Anderson v Watson Beesley v Roberts Sibley v Threadgold - after a tie Firmani v Clayton Smillie v Hollis McKinven v Garner Bentley v Ford Bellotti v Morris Woodley v Crossan Slack v Evans Taylor v Chisnall Best v Kurila Couslon v Moore Halse v Parker Guthrie v Hamilton 2nd...
  15. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Chris Guthrie v Chico Hamilton 1:16

    Last tie of the first round, Guthrie v Hamilton.
  16. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Harold Halse v Stuart Parker 1:15 - poll added

    Penultimate tie of the first round. The only person old enough to see Halse will have been Cricko who is too senile to remember. Stuart Parker should be recent enough for a fair few memories though.
  17. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Willie Coulson v Gary Moore 1:14 - poll added

    Willie Coulson v Gary Moore
  18. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Billy Best v John Kurila 1:13 - poll added

    Hmm, wonder what way this one will go:unsure:
  19. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Peter Taylor v Phil Chisnall 1:12 - poll added

    This one is probably tie of the round a future England player v a Busby babe and both answers to popular trivia questions.
  20. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Mel Slack v Jimmy Evans 1:11 - poll added

    Am looking forward to hearing Napster's memories as 1920's full-back Jimmy Evans takes on 1970's full-back (I think) Mel Slack.
