    Only Gedling. Carlton is only the second best place.

    1925 "Liverpool Echo" cartoon depicting our game at Liverpool, 2nd match of the 25/26 season (when we were wearing chevron shirts).




    Note the mention of the new offside rule. The average goals scored per match in the top flight went from 2.58 in 1924/25 to 3.69, which did for us as we had the 2nd best defence in the league in 24/25 and then, after the new rule was introduced, got relegated in 25/26.

    Have we got anybody here brought up in The Meadows? Often said to be the reason our support was decimated when it was knocked down and re-built but I'm not sure how true that is. Fword were more local than Notts in that area for a significant period of growing the roots of a support base, so I would guess it was more evenly split in the Meadows than assumed.

    I was born on Peel Street close to the city center, I think there was somebody here who lived on Meadow Lane (or their Grandparents/parents did).

    Seeing as you're interested, I was born in the bedroom of a council semi situated just before the bakery on the B600 in Watnall.

    I've never thought of it in terms of pride or shame, it's just where I was born. I must like the area though, because the four houses I've lived in since have all been within a few miles of there.

    Good sporting area Elite, I played for Hazel Grove Celtic on Titchfield Park and Nabbs Lane FC strangely on Nabbs Lane Park.

    A prefab in Gedling for me and I do have a pride in my birthplace and returned to it a few years ago after 30 years away as it is a great community, a group of 15 friends from 50/60 years ago now meet quarterly for a catch up.
