PETER LAWERY 'S LOCAL SPORT

 For all dedicated Fans of any local sport.

 

FOREWORD BY
John Doxey
One of the things I remember from my childhood and teens is that everyone in the area seemed to be involved in sport, mainly soccer. As can be seen on the Sporting Legends page on this site, the area had quite a few stars who emerged in the last century.
Peter Lawery is a true fan and follower of soccer, and also very knowledgeable regarding local soccer, after receiving his email below I decided to call this and subsequent pages the Peter Lawery Sporting Pages.


Now like every kid in the area back in the fifties I played soccer, no I wasn't going to be a super star, nor was I ever going to be termed a good player, but I loved playing the game. Today the game has changed greatly in how it is played, and how the teams line up, in short it has become a more defensive game. Personally I think this has taken a lot of excitement out of the game, and possibly why a lot of people turned toward Rugby League. Here in New South Wales Australia Rugby League is dominant over soccer, and when you see the speed and non stop relentless action in Rugby here, it is not hard to understand why.

 

At heart I will always be a football fan, and here is a thought, despite my lack of playing skills I landed the job as a football coach with a local soccer team. My sons Coach quit and as there was nobody willing to take on the job, rather than see the team of kids fold, I stuck my silly 50 year old hand up. I acquired a Coaching certificate from the Australian Institute of Sport, gained in ten hours of exercises one week end with a temperature of 100 degrees plus [ I kid you not ] .

 

For five years I trained twice a week with the boys, who came from a much varied multicultural background. In our first season of competitive games, we took out the premiership and Grand Final, and I was voted Coach of the year by the Club. Which just goes to show that even the lesser talented from our little area of South Yorkshire can achieve even if at a lesser level.

 

PETER'S EMAIL

 


Dear John.,
I don't know if you know but The Thrybergh / Dalton area produced three of the greatest Football teams to ever grace a pitch. I am sure if you put something on your site other tales & legends would be forthcoming. The first is Silverwood C. W. (Colliery Welfare ). I believe they played at a very high level, not that much below The Football League & I believe their heyday was the 1950s -1960s.They are one of the oldest teams in Rotherham & I believe they were playing before The Welfare Club was built. I can even remember one of our neighbours in The Brook, Mr Bradley of Osberton Street being the groundsman for many years, when the pitch was that good you could play snooker on it.


The second is Thrybergh Old Boys, now we are getting closer to my heart. My best mates dad was the manager through their best years, The 1960s when they won most of the local trophies. If they didn't win them their bitter rivals The Centralians did .One story was from 1966 when they visited France & Belgium & beat Barlin FC. of The French 3rd Division. I have in my safekeeping the trophy & medal that was given to their manager Mr Dick Ward. The third & I would say the best team Rotherham has ever seen ( no I am not biased just because it is a Dalton team ) is Dalton & Eastwood United , ( better known as Dalton Nibs or more affectionately, just " The Nibs". Their greatest season was undoubtedly 1924-25 WHEN THEY WON SEVEN TROPHIES , two finals in one day & Billy Jowett scored 200 goals?
Regards. Peter Lawery.



What  Peter has suggested here is a collection of pages involving the sporting people of Thrybergh, Dalton and Ravenfield. Any sport, any club, just send in what you know, and please send in those memories. We would also like the names of participants in any of those sports from any era, Clubs, Teams, Managers , Coaches, Trainers, Players even Referee's. 

 

Old Photo's, whatever you can add to make these pages a tribute, relive old games, or stories that the young folk can read about.  Your Team can be any age group, and  they don't have to be World Beaters to have a page on this site.

 

So please send them in.
 

HELP!

 

HELP !
Silverwood F. C. has had strong ties with Huddersfield Town starting in 1913 when Larrett Roebuck and Harry Linley signed on at the League club.
Huddersfield Town F. C.  are at this moment in time [ 2006 ] preparing a centenary celebration in 2008. The Publication Committee are seeking information on past players of the club for inclusion in a tribute.
We now have two players from Thrybergh listed with Huddersfield and it is thought that there may be others from the area who also played with Huddersfield. Information sought  on the players includes Birth, Place of Birth, Death, place of Death, Parents, and any relevant information regarding their football careers.
If you have any information regarding the above please contact Alan Hodgson AJH@aaooo.wanadoo.co.uk
