Back in the 1970's the people of Chile suffered under the rule of Pinochet, thousands suffered torture imprisonment, and death. The only people that seemed to do anything about this were the trade unions of other countries who sponsored the release of political prisoners and their families. So it was that England accepted these people from Chile, Thrybergh, Dalton, and the Rotherham area received some of these families.

These people became a great asset to the communities they lived in and during the miners strike of 1984, they immediately organised fund raisers to help support the local miners.


They also brought to the area a touch of football Chilean style, and the above photo is of the local team posing at Thrybergh Comprehensive School.


Ok, we have the photo, what we need now is the names of the players!



I don't know what year this club was formed, If anyone has memories of this club please send them in.
