Two New Images

Before the game yesterday, City director Bill Roper kindly donated two photographs to the museum. They are both from the 1970s and show some of the celebrations following promotion to Division Three (League 1 equivalent) of the Football League. The first one (left) is of a Civic Reception at City Hall. Pictured are: Ces Podd, Hughie Martinez, Tibor Szabo (front), Bill Roper, Roy Stead, Peter Hardcastle, Bernie Wright, Bob Martin, Frank Hillam (Lord Mayor), Bobby Kennedy, Rod Johnson, Trevor Davidson, Jack Tordoff (middle), John Dunne, John Napier, Ron Barrett, Steve Thompson, Dave Fretwell, Gary Watson, Joe Cooke, Don Hutchins, Alex Spark, Peter Downsborough and Terry Dolan (back).
The second was taken at an FA dinner in London at The Royal Lancaster Hotel. Pictured are Bill Roper, Bob Martin, John Garside, Rod Johnson, John Napier, Bernard Ellison, Bryan Edwards, Terry Newman and others.
thanks to David Markham for the names. If you know any of the missing ones, please drop us an email or comment.
