Norman Deeley

Norman Deeley

Norman Deeley nasceu em Wednesbury em 30 de novembro de 1933. Um talentoso jogador de futebol que jogou pelo England Schoolboys em 1947. Foi alegado que ele foi o menor jogador a representar seu país. Como Deeley mais tarde apontou: "Eu tinha apenas 1,20 m de altura quando saí da escola, embora tenha chegado a colossais 1,50 m no final. Mas nunca me preocupei com minha altura. Tinha muita habilidade e bastante ritmo e sabia que era um jogador de futebol bom o suficiente para ter sucesso no jogo. "

Stan Cullis, o gerente do Wolverhampton Wanderers, contratou Deeley em 1949 e jogou pelos reservas como meio-direito aos 16 anos. Após a guerra, ele ajudou o time a conquistar três campeonatos consecutivos da Central League (reserva). Deeley fez sua estreia no time titular em uma vitória em casa por 2 a 1 sobre o Arsenal em agosto de 1951. O time na época incluía Johnny Hancocks, Sammy Smythe, Jesse Pye, Jimmy Dunn, Jimmy Mullen, Billy Crook, Roy Pritchard, Billy Wright, Bert Williams e Bill Shorthouse. Ele continuou sendo um jogador marginal no time que venceu o campeonato da Primeira Divisão na temporada 1953-54.

Deeley jogava ocasionalmente como atacante interno, mas foi somente quando foi transferido para a ala em 1957 que ele se tornou regular na equipe, ocupando o lugar de Harry Hooper. Ele agora se juntou a uma linha avançada que incluía Jimmy Mullen, Jimmy Murray, Peter Broadbent e Bobby Mason. Como observou Ivan Ponting: "Ele recompensou amplamente com habilidade, determinação e bravura o que lhe faltava em estatura física."

O Wolves conquistou o título da primeira divisão na temporada 1957-58. Deeley marcou 23 gols em 41 jogos naquela temporada. Isso incluiu um período de 13 em 15 passeios durante o outono. Foi um total excelente para um ala e ele terminou em segundo apenas na tabela de pontuação do Wolves, atrás do atacante Jimmy Murray.

Deeley conquistou sua primeira internacionalização pela Inglaterra contra o Brasil em 3 de maio de 1958. A Inglaterra venceu o jogo por 2 a 0 e Deeley foi contratado para o jogo contra o Peru. No entanto, a Inglaterra perdeu o jogo por 4-1 e este foi o fim de sua carreira internacional.

Wolves continuou a se dar bem e terminou em 2º lugar na temporada 1959-60. Eles também ganharam a FA Cup em 1960, com Deeley marcando dois dos gols na vitória por 3 a 0 sobre o Blackburn Rovers. Deeley mais tarde lembrou que ele poderia ter feito um hat-trick: "Barry Stobart fez uma boa corrida pela esquerda, alcançou a assinatura e acertou um cruzamento. Eu atacava pelo meio e Mick McGrath, o meio-esquerdo do Rovers, foi comigo. Na verdade, ele alcançou a bola um pouco antes de mim, alongando-se e deslizando. Com o goleiro saindo para receber o cruzamento, observei a bola bater no goleiro e rebater de McGrath para a rede. Não importou muito como eu teria marcado de qualquer maneira. "

Depois de marcar 75 gols em 237 jogos da liga e da copa, Deeley ingressou no Leyton Orient em 1961. Em sua primeira temporada, ele ajudou seu novo clube a ser promovido à Primeira Divisão. Em 1963 ele se juntou a Worcester City. Ele também jogou no Bromsgrove Rovers e no Darlaston Town antes de se aposentar. Mais tarde, ele trabalhou em um centro comunitário em Walsall.

Norman Deeley morreu em Wednesbury em 7 de setembro de 2007.

Norman Deeley era uma pequena bola de energia de alta octanagem e entusiasmo que nunca perdeu seu ímpeto durante seu auge de medalhas com o Wolverhampton Wanderers no final dos anos 1950.

Um atacante de gols irreprimivelmente dinâmico e versátil o suficiente para prosperar em qualquer um dos flancos, ele se destacou como parte da segunda combinação extremamente poderosa moldada pelo formidável disciplinador Stan Cullis, ajudando a levantar dois títulos consecutivos da Liga e a FA Cup, e ganhando o reconhecimento da Inglaterra ao longo o caminho.

Nunca houve muito do efervescente Midlander. Quando ele fez sua entrada no cenário internacional no nível escolar durante 1947/48, ele tinha apenas 4 pés 4 polegadas e foi considerado o menor a jogar pelo time. Na verdade, ele iria crescer apenas trinta centímetros mais alto, mas compensou amplamente em habilidade, determinação e bravura pelo que lhe faltava em estatura física.

Deeley pode ter se juntado ao West Bromwich Albion quando adolescente, encorajado por seu pai apoiador de Throstles, mas o menino tinha seu coração voltado para Wolves e ele conseguiu o que queria, alistando-se em Molineux como um amador direto da escola em 1948 no início do era bem-sucedida da gestão Cullis. Nada desanimado por estar cercado por gigantes comparativos, o diminuto recém-chegado jogou pelas reservas aos 16 anos e ajudou na conquista de três campeonatos consecutivos da Liga Central (reserva), ganhando seu primeiro contrato profissional em dezembro de 1950.

Você não tende a se acalmar nos primeiros cinco minutos ou mais. Meu estômago embrulhou depois disso e eu me senti muito mais com ele, acomodado e concentrado. Blackburn criou uma chance inicial decente quando Peter Dobing passou por Malcolm Finlayson, mas Malcolm salvou a seus pés e essa acabou sendo sua única chance real. Começamos a brincar um pouco também. Meu trabalho sempre foi entrar na área do lado direito quando a bola estava no lado esquerdo. Tinha funcionado o contrário para o meu gol, que venceu a semifinal. De qualquer forma, Barry Stobart fez uma boa corrida pela esquerda, alcançou a assinatura e acertou um cruzamento. Eu corri para o meio e Mick McGrath, a metade esquerda do Rovers, foi comigo. Com o goleiro saindo para receber o cruzamento, observei a bola bater no goleiro e rebater de McGrath para a rede.

Realmente não importava, pois eu teria marcado de qualquer maneira. Depois que a bola bateu no goleiro, se Mick não a tivesse acertado, eu estava apenas alguns metros atrás dele esperando para rebatê-la. Mas os próprios gols são um pesadelo para deixar para trás nos melhores momentos e este foi o maior jogo de todos. Acontece que isso me custou um hat-trick na final da FA Cup. Se você tivesse perdido, Mick! Tenho certeza que você gostaria de ter também.

Enquanto corria atrás dele, pronto para marcar, não pude evitar de seguir a bola para a rede e me agarrar ao cordame para comemorar. Não costumava comemorar muito, não como eles fazem hoje em dia, mas um gol em Wembley é especial ...

Quando saímos do campo após o apito do intervalo, a BBC TV perguntou-me se era mesmo o meu golo. Ao vivo no ar, no intervalo! Eu disse à nação que Mick marcou. Eu poderia ter reivindicado o gol naquela hora e teria meu hat-trick, mas sabia que Mick havia acertado o lance, não eu, e achei que era óbvio. Também não sabia o que o destino me reservava para o segundo tempo.

Quando entramos no camarim, tudo que Stan nos disse foi "Continue". Eu o vi trocar de camisa porque a que ele estava vestindo estava torcendo de suor. Foi um dia quente, mas acho que ele estava muito nervoso, por sermos favoritos e depois ter a vantagem do homem. Ele não queria que cometêssemos erros tolos. Não tínhamos esse luxo. Lembro que minha camisa também estava molhada, embora pelo menos eu estivesse correndo! Mas não podíamos mudar. Para ser honesto, eu estava mais quente no verão anterior, quando toquei pela Inglaterra em uma turnê na América do Sul.

Jogamos com extrema competência no segundo tempo. Blackburn realmente não nos ameaçou. Mas ainda precisávamos de outro objetivo antes de podermos dizer "É isso". E veio do meu jeito. Des Horne cruzou da esquerda em minha direção. Eu estava correndo para a área e martelei da primeira vez. Eu soube que estava lá assim que o enfiei e quando bateu no fundo da rede, a sensação foi incrível. Houve até alguma controvérsia sobre esse gol, já que Blackburn alegou que Horne estava impedido. Mas o que aconteceu foi que McGrath estava parado na linha do gol jogando contra ele e ele pulou do campo para trás, deixando Des tecnicamente impedido. Mas o árbitro permitiu que o jogo continuasse. Muito bem, na minha opinião, quando marquei!

Pelo menos nós mesmos tínhamos marcado um gol, em vez de apenas ganhar a Copa com um gol contra. Ninguém ficou muito animado. Acabei de receber um tapinha nas costas e alguns apertos de mão. Acho que um pouco do brilho foi tirado de tudo para muitos dos rapazes por Blackburn diminuindo para dez homens. E, de qualquer forma, sempre achamos que era um esforço de equipe. Naquela época, realmente era. Nenhuma dessas estrelas individualistas. Na verdade, as verdadeiras estrelas foram os jogadores que fizeram gols, e não aqueles que os finalizaram e ganharam os aplausos.

Então eu marquei novamente. Des Horne fez um canto curto e cruzou para a área. Ele errou um pouco e a bola atingiu a trave e saiu na frente do gol. Woods tentou limpá-lo, mas também errou. Caiu para mim perfeitamente no vôlei. Eu cronometrei bem e acertei.

Eu havia passado horas no "Calabouço" sob as arquibancadas em Molineux, arremessando bolas das paredes ásperas e praticando o chute de vôlei. Isso valeu a pena então quando me virei e acertei com precisão. Houve apenas um pequeno atraso enquanto eu via a bola voar para a rede e então eu sabia que tudo estava acabado. 3-0 contra dez homens. Nós vencemos.

Norman Deeley, que marcou duas vezes na vitória dos Wolves na FA Cup em 1960, foi encontrado morto em sua casa em Wednesbury aos 73 anos.

Há muitas homenagens ao jogador, que jogou pelo clube como ala durante a era de ouro da década de 1950, quando o Wolves se sagrou campeão da primeira divisão por três vezes.

Deeley é descrito como “uma verdadeira lenda dos lobos”, que deu tudo de si pelo clube - ele fez 237 partidas, marcando 75 gols em 11 anos.

O ex-jogador Bill Slater, que foi capitão do time Wolves que derrotou o Blackburn Rovers para erguer a FA Cup em 1960, disse: “Esta é uma notícia muito triste - Norman era um bom jogador que era imensamente popular.

“Ele passou muitos anos no clube e fez muitos gols. Lembro-me de quando derrotamos o Blackburn por 3 a 0 e ele marcou duas vezes, e se bem me lembro, ele atirou para o outro gol que na verdade saiu de um jogador do Blackburn antes de entrar.

“Ele brincou que achava que deveria reivindicá-lo para que ele pudesse ter um hat-trick final da copa. Esse é o personagem animado que ele era. É uma notícia muito triste e sua falta será sentida. ”

O ex-jogador Ron Flowers, que passou 15 anos no Wolves de 1952 a 1967, disse: “Norman era um grande jogador e acho que ele poderia ter jogado em qualquer lugar.

“Ele era um sujeito atrevido, como todos os pequenos jogadores, e fará muita falta.”


Norman Deeley

Norman Victor Deeley, jogador de futebol: nascido em Wednesbury, Staffordshire 30 de novembro de 1933 jogou pelo Wolverhampton Wanderers 1948-62, Leyton Orient 1962-64 internacional duas vezes pela Inglaterra 1959 (um filho, uma filha) morreu em Wednesbury em 7 de setembro de 2007.

Norman Deeley era uma pequena bola de energia de alta octanagem e entusiasmo que nunca perdeu seu ímpeto durante seu auge de medalhas com o Wolverhampton Wanderers no final dos anos 1950.

Um ala marcador de gols irreprimivelmente dinâmico e versátil o suficiente para prosperar em qualquer um dos flancos, ele se destacou como parte da segunda combinação extremamente poderosa moldada pelo formidável disciplinador Stan Cullis, ajudando a levantar dois títulos consecutivos da Liga e a FA Cup, e ganhando o reconhecimento da Inglaterra ao longo o caminho.

Nunca houve muito do efervescente Midlander. Quando ele fez sua entrada no cenário internacional no nível escolar durante 1947/48, ele tinha apenas 4 pés 4 polegadas e foi considerado o menor a jogar pelo time. Na verdade, ele iria crescer apenas trinta centímetros mais alto, mas compensou amplamente em habilidade, determinação e bravura pelo que lhe faltava em estatura física.

Deeley pode ter se juntado ao West Bromwich Albion quando adolescente, encorajado por seu pai apoiador de Throstles, mas o menino tinha seu coração voltado para Wolves e ele conseguiu o que queria, alistando-se em Molineux como um amador direto da escola em 1948 no início do era bem-sucedida da gestão Cullis. Nada desanimado por estar cercado por gigantes comparativos, o diminuto recém-chegado jogou pelas reservas aos 16 anos e ajudou na conquista de três campeonatos consecutivos da Liga Central (reserva), ganhando seu primeiro contrato profissional em dezembro de 1950.

Naquele ponto, ele era um meio-campista - um meio-campista na linguagem moderna - e foi nessa função que ele fez sua estréia sênior na vitória por 2 a 1 em casa sobre o Arsenal em agosto de 1951. Seguiram-se oportunidades esporádicas para o primeiro time, alguns deles no atacante interno, quando completou seu Serviço Nacional no Exército, e permaneceu um jogador marginal enquanto os Wolves conquistaram o primeiro título da Liga em sua história em 1953/54.

Deeley marcou seu primeiro gol pelo clube em um empate pulsante de 4-4 com o West Bromwich no FA Charity Shield no mês de agosto seguinte, mas era difícil imaginar um homem tão pequeno forjando uma vaga regular no meio do campo. -unidade de execução que Cullis havia criado. No entanto, o astuto chefe do Molineux relutou em dispensar um artista tão talentoso e vigoroso e no final de 1956/57 deu-lhe uma corrida prolongada na ala esquerda, onde Deeley começou a insinuar em realizar todo o seu potencial.

Depois disso, ele brilhou em uma turnê de verão pela África do Sul, que o preparou para estrelar a campanha pela conquista do título de 1957/58 como um substituto do flanco direito para o igualmente minúsculo herói local Johnny Hancocks, que havia chegado ao estágio de veterano.

Durante aquela temporada triunfante, que viu os homens de Cullis terminarem com cinco pontos de vantagem sobre o segundo colocado Preston North End, Deeley perdeu apenas um jogo e contribuiu com 23 gols, incluindo um período galopante de 13 em 15 partidas durante o outono. Foi um total notável para um ala e ele terminou em segundo apenas na tabela de pontuação do Wolves, para o atacante Jimmy Murray, mas ele não foi um mero conversor de chances.

Com seu movimento ininterrupto e cérebro futebolístico incisivo, Deeley se misturou fluentemente com seus companheiros atacantes e foi parte integrante do jogo rápido de construção de fogo rápido característico de Wolves. Ele foi particularmente atraente em conjunto com seu amigo mais próximo, o sedutoramente habilidoso interno-direito Peter Broadbent, e se relacionou lindamente, também, com o imensamente subestimado Murray, o laborioso esquerdista Bobby Mason e o experiente ala esquerdo Jimmy Mullen.

Em 1958/59, no final do qual os muito influentes Lobos e meio-campo da Inglaterra Billy Wright se aposentaram, Deeley e seus companheiros atacantes permaneceram igualmente potentes enquanto os Black Countrys mantiveram o campeonato, terminando seis pontos à frente do vice-campeão Manchester United, que ainda estava nos estágios iniciais de reconstrução após a devastação do desastre aéreo de Munique.

Neste ponto, Deeley foi recompensado por sua bravura no famoso ouro e preto dos Lobos com uma convocação internacional completa, sendo selecionado para a turnê de primavera da Inglaterra pela América do Sul, mas teve pouco impacto nas derrotas para Brasil e Peru e foi sumariamente descartado pelo treinador, Walter Winterbottom.

Em nível de clube, porém, ele permaneceu tão eficaz como sempre e em 1959/60 Wolves chegou dolorosamente perto do que teria sido sua maior glória - tornando-se o primeiro clube no século 20 a vencer a Liga e a Copa da Inglaterra. Depois de completar o programa da Primeira Divisão, eles chegaram ao topo da tabela, com Deeley marcando 14 gols, mas depois veio a mortificação de ser revisado por Burnley, que jogou sua última partida dois dias depois.

No entanto, havia consolo na loja contra o Blackburn Rovers na final da FA Cup, na qual Deeley provou ser a figura central, marcando dois gols no segundo tempo em uma vitória confortável por 3-0. Na verdade, ele esteve perto de um "hat-trick" em Wembley, já que estava pronto para um remate para abrir o placar pouco antes do intervalo, apenas para Mick McGrath dos Rovers passar à frente dele para um gol contra.

Menos feliz, com o placar de 1 a 0 ele se envolveu em uma colisão com Dave Whelan, na qual o lateral do Blackburn - destinado a fazer fortuna nos negócios e presidir a notável ascensão do Wigan Athletic à Premiership - quebrou a perna. Naqueles dias, antes que os substitutos fossem permitidos, a lesão tornou a final uma disputa desigual e enfureceu os fãs do Blackburn, que achavam que Deeley deveria ter sido dispensado pelo desafio. No entanto, o ala do Wolves sempre sustentou firmemente que o confronto tinha sido um acidente, uma visão com a qual a maioria dos observadores neutros concordou.

Em 1960/61, que provou sua última campanha completa em Molineux, Deeley manteve-se em boa forma com o time terminando em terceiro na tabela e compilando um século de gols na Liga pela quarta temporada consecutiva, mas sua estrela estava começando a declinar e em fevereiro de 1962, com Cullis tentando reconstruir sua força decadente, o pequeno flankman foi libertado para se juntar a Leyton Orient.

Em Brisbane Road, sob a orientação do gerente Johnny Carey, Deeley desfrutou de um breve verão indiano, inicialmente satisfatório, auxiliando na ascensão do Oriente à Primeira Divisão no clímax daquele mandato. Depois disso, ele perdeu apenas um punhado de jogos, já que os londrinos irremediavelmente superados se mostraram incapazes de se manter entre a elite, então ele deixou a Liga após meia temporada de trabalho duro na Segunda.

Mais tarde, ele serviu em uma sucessão de clubes fora da Liga, incluindo Worcester City, Bromsgrove Rovers e Darlaston Town, antes de se aposentar do jogo em 1974. Nos anos subsequentes, Deeley gerenciou a Caldmore Community Agency em Walsall e trabalhou como administrador do Walsall FC Sala VIP.


Norman Deeley - História

Norman Deeley & # 8211 talvez um gol melhor do que pensávamos.

Um pequeno pedaço da história do Wolverhampton Wanderers pode em breve ser reescrito em favor do atacante local Norman Deeley.

Nascido em Wednesbury, o herói da final da Copa da Inglaterra de 1960 já tem um lugar de destaque na história do Molineux, com sua marca de gols pelo clube em jogos da Liga e da Copa em 75.

Mas esse total pode estar prestes a chegar a 76, graças à verificação diligente dos estatísticos do futebol em Manchester e neste patch.

Atenção especial está sendo dada a um dos gols pelos quais os Wolves venceram o Manchester United por 2 a 1 em um jogo da Primeira Divisão assistido por mais de 38.000 jogadores em fevereiro de 1961.

Os livros de registro completo dos lobos, aos quais tendemos a recorrer como referência sobre esses assuntos, têm Ron Flowers e Shay Brennan (gol contra) como artilheiros do lado de Stan Cullis e # 8217.

Aproximadamente 60 anos depois, no entanto, perguntas estão sendo feitas sobre se essas informações estão corretas & # 8211 e o ex-editor de esportes da Express & amp Star, Steve Gordos, está desempenhando um papel no processo de classificação.

& # 8220Eu recebi um e-mail de Tony Williams no English National Football Archive, questionando um gol creditado como um gol contra Shay Brennan, & # 8221 disse o autor de muitos livros do Wolves.

& # 8220Ele se perguntou se deveria ser um gol de Norman Deeley e, como ainda tenho meus álbuns de recortes para aquela temporada, encontrei o relatório do Sporting Star de Phil Morgan e parece bastante claro que deveria ter sido um de Norman. Não houve sugestão de Brennan estar envolvido.

& # 8220O resultado final é que eu acho que Norman deveria ter 76 gols do Wolves em seu nome, em vez de 75, mas o ENFA aparentemente tem cerca de 1.500 consultas sobre artilheiros desde o início da Liga de futebol! & # 8221

Vários desses pontos de interrogação referem-se a outras correspondências do passado de Wolves & # 8217, portanto, poderemos revisitar esse assunto nos próximos meses.

Nenhuma menção de uma intervenção do defensor & # 8217s.

Uma olhada na seção Goal Aces deste site mostra que Deeley é o 19º maior artilheiro da história de Molineux e estará três vezes atrás do 18º colocado Terry Wharton, mesmo se ele receber este gol extra tardiamente, despachado pelo goleiro amador Mike Pinner do United e # 8217 .

O esforço contra o United também fará dele o quarto melhor artilheiro do clube em 1960-61 e # 8211, uma campanha na qual atualmente está ao lado de Cliff Durandt com oito gols, atrás de Ted Farmer (28), Jimmy Murray (25) e Peter Broadbent (14).


Carreira atlética

Em vez de ingressar no clube do West Bromwich Albion, amado por seu pai, Norman Deeley foi contratado pelo rival Wolverhampton Wanderers quando ainda era um garoto de escola e, com apenas 16 anos, fez seus primeiros jogos no time reserva. Antes já tinha se destacado na seleção nacional da escola e com uma altura de pouco mais de 1,30 metros parecia apenas estar “perdido entre os gigantes”, pois compensava essa deficiência com habilidades técnicas. Em dezembro de 1950, ele assinou seu primeiro contrato profissional com os "Lobos" e como um corredor de direita, que foi Deeley no início de sua carreira, estreou-se em agosto de 1951 por ocasião da vitória em casa por 2 a 1 sobre o Arsenal . Seguiram-se aparições esporádicas na primeira equipe, incluindo algumas como meio-atacante, antes de ele contribuir um pouco para a conquista do campeonato inglês com seis jogos no campeonato após cumprir o serviço militar na temporada 1953/54.

Aos 4: 4 no jogo Charity Shield contra o West Bromwich Albion, Deeley marcou o primeiro gol pelo time profissional em agosto de 1954 e ele ainda parecia um pouco exótico devido ao seu tamanho pequeno. A perspectiva de longo prazo também parecia vaga, já que o técnico Stan Cullis queria que sua equipe mostrasse uma presença física especial nos jogos. No final da temporada 1956/57, Deeley subiu para a primeira equipe e mostrou grande disposição para correr pelo lado esquerdo. Durante a turnê de verão pela África do Sul logo depois disso, ele finalmente veio à tona e comemorou sua descoberta na temporada de 1957/58 na posição de ala direita - as partidas dos veteranos Johnny Hancocks e Harry Hooper, que haviam caído em desgraça com Cullis, havia deixado o posto avançado da direita vago. Deeley marcou 23 gols, foi o segundo melhor goleador do time, atrás do atacante Jimmy Murray, e conquistou o campeonato inglês. Equipado com uma inteligência de jogo acima da média, Deeley e seu amigo e também tecnicamente habilidoso Peter Broadbent foram o ponto de partida para o jogo de construção rápida para fazer isso, ele formou um "alicate asa" com o experiente ala esquerdo Jimmy Mullen. Na temporada seguinte, Deeley defendeu o título da liga com os Lobos, especialmente em 1959, ele frequentemente desviava de Mullen para a esquerda. No auge de seu poder criativo, durante uma turnê pela América do Sul em maio de 1959, ele também jogou duas partidas A-internacionais pela Inglaterra, mas elas terminaram com 0: 2 (contra o Brasil no Estádio do Maracanã) e 1: 4 (contra Peru no Estadio Nacional) foram perdidos e levaram o técnico Walter Winterbottom a renunciar a Deeley no futuro.

Deeley perdeu por pouco o terceiro título do campeonato inglês com o Wolverhampton Wanderers na temporada 1959/60. Mas ele contribuiu com dois gols na final da FA Cup para a vitória final por 3-0 sobre o Blackburn Rovers e Deeley foi considerado um jogador decisivo em vários aspectos, pois derrotou o adversário Dave Whelan aos 43 minutos, quando o placar estava 1-0 no. uma perna quebrou e os Rovers estavam em grande desvantagem - substituições ainda não eram permitidas neste momento. Na temporada 1960/61, Deeley veio pela quarta vez consecutiva com um rendimento de gols de dois dígitos, mas lentamente o melhor tempo estava chegando ao fim. Em fevereiro de 1962, ele foi vítima de grandes mudanças na equipe e mudou-se para Leyton Orient, em Londres.

Com o novo clube, Deeley teve sucesso nos jogos restantes de promoção à primeira divisão inglesa, mas em sua última temporada 1962/63 como profissional não conseguiu evitar o retorno direto à segunda divisão. Suas últimas paradas foram nas ligas inferiores de Worcester City (162 partidas competitivas, 44 gols), Bromsgrove Rovers e Darlaston FC, onde encerrou sua carreira ativa em 1974. Deeley então trabalhou no Caldmore Community Centre em Walsall e morou em Wednesbury , a cidade de seu nascimento, até sua morte em setembro de 2007.

Mais velho do mundo

Nosso palestrante na noite de terça-feira (27 de novembro) é Duncan Close, de Sanquhar, que nos contará um pouco sobre a agência dos correios mais antiga do mundo.

Os correios de Sanquhar há muito eram aceitos como os mais antigos da Grã-Bretanha. Funciona desde 1712 e agora é considerada a mais antiga do mundo.
Na época em que os correios começaram, as coroas da Inglaterra e da Escócia não haviam sido unidas por muito tempo. Havia uma atividade considerável nas áreas de fronteira de ambas as terras e uma das famílias mais importantes e influentes da época era a família Crichton, proprietária do Castelo de Sanquhar.
Em 1712, um serviço conhecido como "posto cruzado de Nithsdale" foi estabelecido, com mensageiros a cavalo entregando mensagens entre a pequena nobreza de ambos os lados da fronteira entre a Escócia e a Inglaterra.
Quando Robert Burns estava vivo na última parte do século 18, ele era grande amigo do dono da agência dos correios de Sanquhar, e a lareira na sala de estar do prédio foi construída com olmos cultivados por Burns em sua fazenda em Ellisland Farm , perto de Dumfries.

Venha na terça à noite e aprenda mais.

Periódicos Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock Periodicals (1815 & # 8211 1900) é uma das Coleções Especiais do Burns Monument Center & # 8217s.

Esta é uma coleção quase completa dos periódicos impressos em Kilmarnock de 1816 a 1900 (também inclui The Ayrshire Magazine e West Country Monthly Repository, que foi impresso em Irvine em 1815).


Os primeiros periódicos, em particular, fornecem uma visão interessante da cena literária da cidade & # 8217 na época. A maioria deles contém poemas, histórias, ensaios e resenhas originais de escritores com alguma conexão com a área. Por exemplo, o Kilmarnock Annual e Western Literary Annual (1835) contém duas canções de John Galt.
Alguns dos principais impressores da cidade aventuraram-se na impressão periódica em algum momento. Por exemplo, H. Crawford (que foi o próximo impressor da cidade & # 8217s depois que John Wilson partiu para Ayr), imprimiu A Miscelânea de Ayrshire de 1817. Um pouco mais tarde, James McKie publicou alguns títulos, incluindo The Ayrshire Inspirer (1839). D. Brown and Company, que imprimiu muitos livros de Burns da década de 1880 até 1900, produziu o livro inspirado em Burns Auld Killie (1893 – 1898).


The FitzGeralds of Carton House & ndash uma família profundamente disfuncional: O declínio e a queda dos duques de Leinster

As bases para este livro absorvente foram possíveis com a descoberta de um esconderijo de cartas escritas por Hermione Duncombe, esposa de Gerald FitzGerald, o quinto duque de Leinster (1851-1893).

Uma das famílias aristocráticas mais importantes da Irlanda, os FitzGeralds viveram por quase 300 anos na mansão Palladiana Carton House, fora de Maynooth, em Co Kildare. Depositadas no Somerset Record Office, as cartas de Hermione permitiram a Dooley, que escreveu extensivamente sobre a questão fundiária e o declínio das grandes casas da Irlanda, avaliar as dimensões privadas que acompanharam a crise pública que afligiu a aristocracia anglo-irlandesa no final do século 19 e início do século 20, quando as mudanças sociais, econômicas e políticas diluíram seu poder, domínio e opções.

Declínio e queda dos duques de Leinster, 1872-1948: amor, guerra, dívida e loucura

Descendente dos Anglo-Norman FitzGeralds, a família morava em Kildare desde o início do século 13 até o final do século 17, e foi estabelecida no centro dos negócios anglo-irlandeses. Mas quando Gerald atingiu a maioridade, em 1872, a mudança estava no ar, e nos 50 anos seguintes as revoluções nacionalistas, na terra e na política, a Primeira Guerra Mundial e a Guerra da Independência da Irlanda foram acompanhadas pela experiência privada da família de o que é proclamado no subtítulo do livro como “amor, dívida e loucura”. A realidade, porém, é que há muito pouco amor em exibição - esta era uma família profundamente disfuncional, destruída pelo privilégio e pela falta de amor.

Quando Gerald se tornou duque, a propriedade de Leinster tinha mais de 28.000 hectares e rendeu £ 40.000 em aluguéis agrícolas (£ 3 milhões em termos de 2014), mas a preocupação com as aparências e o desejo de garantir a continuidade do status histórico dos FitzGeralds significava que "exibição externa era muito mais importante do que acessibilidade ”. Ambições arrogantes e esnobismo geraram grandes dívidas.

A propriedade foi um grande empregador e de vital importância para a economia local, que por sua vez criou uma hierarquia, com empregados mais ricos comprando propriedades, e o surgimento da “shopocracia”, ao lado de inquilinos em dificuldades e empregados de salários mais baixos.

Suas aspirações e frustrações combinadas garantiram que o período do ducado de Gerald "representou o crepúsculo do paternalismo e da deferência na propriedade de Leinster". O surgimento da Leinster Tenants Defense Association em 1872 e a controvérsia sobre os arrendamentos prejudicaram a noção dos FitzGeralds como paternalistas, e tomar empréstimos com a força colateral da vasta propriedade tornou-se problemático.

A narrativa dessas crises muda para talvez a parte mais interessante deste livro, que cobre a infelicidade desesperada de Hermione em seu casamento com Gerald ("ele usa tirania mesquinha") e sua solidão abjeta.

Ela resumiu sua miséria em uma carta à irmã: “Não tenho nada com que gastar minhas energias, nenhum objetivo ou objetivo na vida, nenhum grande interesse”. Consumida pela depressão, o que ela chamava de “os cachorros negros”, ela ansiava por diversão, o que a levou a um caso com Hugo Charteris, um caprino temperamental, apostador, que a tratava terrivelmente.

Escandalosamente, Hermione deu à luz seu filho ilegítimo, Edward, em 1892, já tendo dois filhos, Maurice e Desmond, com Gerald, embora convenientemente, como então não era particularmente incomum, ela voltou a se casar, e Gerald morreu um ano mais tarde.

Dooley reconhece lacunas no registro de arquivo de muitas cartas “lançam tantas perguntas quanto fornecem respostas”, e ele às vezes se entrega a conjecturas e psicologia popular para imaginar o que move Hermione. Isso é desnecessário, pois qualquer ambivalência existente é mais do que compensada pela clareza de seu desespero e pelo que ela descreveu como sua cegueira moral.

De forma reveladora, “em nenhuma de suas cartas ela fez menção às suas preocupações com assuntos públicos ou deveres públicos”. Seguiram-se tuberculose e morte aos 30 anos.

Os curadores do estado eram agora necessários até que o filho mais velho de Hermione, Maurice, atingisse a maioridade, em 1908, e o curador-chefe era o irmão de Gerald, Lord Frederick, que não deixou documentos pessoais para trás, mas foi o último dos Kildare FitzGeralds a se tornar um representante público, como membro do Conselho do Condado de Kildare.

Com o Wyndham Act (1903), que facilitou a transferência de propriedades financiadas pelo estado para os inquilinos, Frederick também enfrentou a venda da propriedade de Leinster. Inevitavelmente, também existem lacunas nesta narrativa, pois não subsistiram quaisquer rendas ou contas de imóveis, “nem se sabe nada sobre o próprio processo de tomada de decisão quanto à venda do imóvel”. Mas houve grande interesse da mídia em sua venda por £ 754.000 (£ 73 milhões nos valores de hoje), e isso facilitou as ambições dos agricultores bem posicionados para comprar uma nova posição social.

Depois disso, a questão para os FitzGeralds, que mantiveram os ornamentos residenciais de Carton House e sua propriedade, era como a soma de capital da venda da propriedade poderia ser investida para sustentar um estilo de vida ducal por gerações. Dooley, with the assistance of the opinions of contemporary investment experts, is unimpressed that so much of the capital was invested in mortgages, but it seems dubious and unhistorical that he examines the portfolio in terms of good investment practice by today’s standards.

Dooley’s return to the private lives of the family is, however, once again fascinating, and less speculative. Maurice came of age with the ducal title but no vast estate. Profoundly affected by the loss of his mother, stricken with epilepsy and a victim of sexual abuse at school in Berkshire, he subsequently ended up in an asylum in Edinburgh following a nervous breakdown. Dooley uses a good range of sources to give an insight into his condition and the taboo around it throughout his confinement the focus of the trustees was on finances rather than his mental health. He died in 1922.

His younger brother, Desmond, had a very different experience. Educated at Eton and then Sandhurst, he was subsequently killed during the first World War, at Ypres. Edward, however, the seventh duke, was the “polar opposite of Desmond” there was great media interest in him, and he exploited fame for all it was worth, swindling money, signing promissory notes, facing regular bankruptcy proceedings and treating women cruelly. He was also introduced to Henry Mallaby-Deeley, “ an intrepid speculator”, who agreed to pay off his debts and pay him an allowance in return for Carton and the income from the estate.

Mallaby-Deely’s control over Carton was just as well he was “better for Carton than an impoverished and feckless heir would have been”, and feckless Edward certainly was – or, as he wrote in 1957, when he sold his life story to the Sunday Dispatch: “My road to ruin was the gay road – the road of mad parties, reckless friends and lovely women.” That road also involved four marriages, but “ruin” was relative.

In search of an heiress, Edward went to the US in 1932, married and became bankrupt for a third time, but he continued to live on an annual allowance of £1,000 from Mallaby-Deeley. He and his wife “could afford a butler, a cook, a housemaid, a between-maid, a Lady’s maid, a chauffeur and a part time secretary”. By 1965, however, the Notícias do mundo took pleasure in highlighting that he and his fourth wife were “living on baked beans” as they “dodged the creditors”. He lived until 1976.

Mallaby-Deeley was adversely affected by the Great Depression of the 1930s. His family decided in 1948, with the agreement of the trustees and Edward’s son Gerald, to sell Carton. Given the narcissism of so many of the characters in this book, it was perhaps an inevitable end to a fascinating saga, recounted with verve in this book.


Norman Deeley - History

Introdução

In their 142 year history the England national football team have had a number of famous matches against South American opposition, most notably in World Cup finals games. In 1966 they drew 0-0 against Uruguay in their opening match before going on to win the tournament. 1970 saw Bobby Moore’s England lose 1-0 to Pele’s Brazil. In the 1986 quarter-final versus Argentina they succumed to the hand, and genius, of Diego Maradona and then 12 years later Beckham’s sending off and a penalty shootout loss against the same opposition in the last 16.

But against Peru their playing record is not so extensive. They’ve only played the La Blanquirroja (‘The White and Red’) only twice so far. But now a third game against Peru has now been confirmed. This will bring the team currently ranked 39 in the world to Wembley for a warm-up match for England prior to leaving for the United States where they will prepare for the finals tournament in Brazil with further friendlies against Ecuador and Honduras. The English FA were keen to test themselves against South and Central American opposition due to the fact that they are due to play Luis Suarez’s Uruguay in Sao Paulo on 19 th June following by Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte 5 days later. Although Uruguay are obviously a far superior team, holding 6 th place in the current FIFA rankings, it is thought that the meeting with Peru will bring useful experience against a team with a similar playing style and tempo.

The Peruvian national team are currently without a manager following the sacking of Sergio Markarian after finishing 7 th in the last South American World Cup qualifying tournament. This is despite an unexpected 3 rd place finish in the 2011 Copa American competition which was held in Argentina. A number of names have since been linked with the post, among them Diego Maradona and his fellow Argentinians Marcelo Bielsa, Sergio Batista and Julio Falconi. Home-grown candidates include the current coach of Peruvian Primera Division club Universidad Cesar Vallejo, Victor Rivera, and former Newcastle United winger Nolberto Solano.

Previous Meetings

The game on the 30 th May will be the first time in 52 years that the two countries have met and the first time on English soil. The two previous meetings took place took place in 1959 and 1962 and were both friendlies played in the Peruvian capital city of Lima. England had had a disappointing performance in the 1958 World Cup in Sweden having been knocked out in the group stage. However, they did manage to share the in 1959 Home International title with Ireland before leaving for a tour of the Americas at the end of the 1958-59 season.

The touring party was relatively inexperienced. The team was captained by 35 year-old Billy Wright of Wolves, who had won his 100 th England cap shortly before the tour. Only four other players had caps numbering in double-figures and three would make their international debuts during the tour. In their first game of the tour they lost 2-0 to Brazil in Rio de Janiero in front of a crowd of 160,000.

Peru had a decent side at the time and were ranked just outside the top 20. Earlier in 1959 they had managed 4 th place in the Copa America tournament and their team, with a mixture of youth and experience, had attracted much praise for its attractive play. They warmed up for the England game with friendlies against Lima club sides Union America, newly promoted to the Primera Division, and Ciclista Lima winning the former 1-0 thanks to a goal by Miguel Loayza and losing the second by the same score. The latter result brought much criticism by the Peruvian press who questioned whether the team’s players were really good enough to play against such an esteemed side as England and if the national side’s coach, the Hungarian Gyorgy Orth, was the right man for the job.

The game created much interest in the Peruvian media. Very few Peruvian households had television in those days and so the majority of the country got their information via newspapers. The England coach Walter Winterbottom spent two hours giving an exclusive interview to one newspaper in the Hotel Crillon, the England base during their stay in Lima. The 21 year-old Manchester United forward Bobby Charlton drew the most attention and commented that he expected a difficult game as it would be played outside of England and expressed concern that he would be up against a good defender in “Mr Benitez”. The game was played on 17 th May, a Sunday, and over 50,000 spectators turned up at the National Stadium to watch.

England made one change from their game versus Brazil with 19 year-old inside forward Jimmy Greaves of Chelsea replacing Peter Broadbent of Wolves to make his international debut. The England team thus lined up as: Eddie Hopkinson (Bolton Wanderers) – GK, Don Howe (West Bromwich Albion), Jimmy Armfield (Blackpool), Ronnie Clayton (Blackburn Rovers), Billy Wright (Wolverhampton Wanderers) – Captain, Ron Flowers (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Norman Deeley (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Jimmy Greaves (Chelsea), Johnny Haynes (Fulham), Albert Holden (Bolton Wanderers), Bobby Charlton (Manchester United). Both Armfield and Deeley were winning only their 2 nd caps, Holden his 4 th and Flowers his 6 th . The team lined up in Winterbottom’s favourite 3-2-5, or WM, formation with Armfield and Howe at fullback, Wright at centre-half and Flowers and Clayton and midfield. Charlton was the centre forward with Greaves and Haynes as inside forwards and Deeley and Holden as outside rights.

The Peru team was Rafael Asca (Sporting Cristal) – GK & Captain, Willy Flemming (Deportivo Municipal), Victor Benitez (Alianza Lima), Jose Fernandez (Universitario), Isaac Andrade (Sport Boys), Juan de la Vega (Alianza Lima), Oscar Montalvo (Deportivo Municipal), Miguel Loayza (Ciclista Lima), Juan Joya (Alianza Lima), Jose Carrasco (Deportivo Municipal), Juan Seminario (Deportivo Municipal). Peru coach Orth also used a 2-3-5 formation with Flemming and Fernandez flanking Benitez at the back and Andrade and de la Vega in Midfield. Up front Joya was the centre forward with Loayza and Montalvo to his right and Carrasco and Seminario to his left.

The game was referred by Erwin Hieger. Hieger was born in Austria and referred in the Austrian League before emigrating to Peru in the mid 1950s. He took charge of a number of matches in the 1957 Copa America under Austrian nationality but had become a Peruvian citizen by the time he referred in the 1968 Olympic football tournament.

Peru started the game very brightly and Howe and Armfield found it very difficult to cope with the movement of Seminario and Montalvo. The former opened the scoring in the 10 th minute and then added a second five minutes before half-time. Debutant Greaves, who had finished as the First Division top-scorer with 32 goals in the season just ended, pulled a goal back in the 58 th minute but Joya restored the two-goal lead nine minutes later. Seminario would complete his hat-trick after 80 minutes to make the final score 4-1 to Peru. Despite his three goals Seminario was actually criticized by certain members of the Peruvian media for his greedy play. Jose Fernandez was named man of the match with high praise also being received by both Montalvo and Loayza.

England had decided to wear a blue shirt for the game, for the first time since their disastrous 1-0 defeat to the United States in Belo Horizonte during the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. As a result of this thrashing the blue shirt has never been worn again by England. Each of the Peruvian players received a sum of 4500 sols for their performance against England. 2500 sols of this was received as salary from the Peruvian Football Federation with the remaining 2000 sols been paid as prize money by the local drinks manufactuer Backus and Johnston. England’s defeat resulted in much delight in Peru but much criticism back in London. Sam Leitch, the famous broadcaster and journalist, wrote in the Evening Standard “Imagine that indignity that Peru, playing with four good players and seven ballet dancers, and sponsered by a brewery, made England look like a panting novice.”

Norman Deeley’s poor performance against Peru meant that he never played for England again and Albert Holden won only one more cap, in England’s next fixture away to Mexico which they also lose, 2-1. England would finish their tour of the Americas with an 8-1 thrashing of the United States with Charlton getting a hat-trick in what would be Billy Wright’s 105 th , and last, England cap but overall the tour was considered to be a disaster.

As a result of their performances against England a number of the Peru team earned moves abroad. Victor Benitez was signed by Boca Juniors of Argentina in 1960 and then 8 years in Italy’s Serie A played for, amongst others, both Milan clubs and AS Roma. Juan Joya also moved to Argentina in 1960 to join River Plate and then spent 8 years with Penarol of Uruguay. Shortly after the England game 20 year-old Miguel Loayza was signed by Spanish giants Barcelona but only managed 10 games, scoring 4 times, before returning to South America in 1961 to join Boca Juniors. He then played for 5 other Argentinian clubs, including River Plate, before finishing his playing career with Colombian side Deportivo Cali. Hat-trick hero Juan Seminario earned a move to Sporting Lisbon of Portugal before joining Real Zaragoza of Spain. His 33 goals in the 1961-62 season brought him to the attention of Serie A club Fiorentina. He returned to Spain in 1964 to play for first Barcelona and then CE Sabadell before finishing his career back in Peru.

At the time the Peruvian FA refused to select players who played outside of Peru for their national team and so Seminario, Benitez, Loayza and Joya never appeared for the Peruvian national team again after the England game although Juan Joya later played one game for Uruguay. Other players moved abroad a few years later. Isaac Andrade played for various clubs in Argentina between 1962 and 1969, Oscar Montalvo played for Deportivo La Coruna in Spain in the mid 1960s. They would also end their international careers with these moves. The Peru team of the 1960s could easily have rivaled those of the 1930s and 1970s had all these players been able to represent their country but as it was they failed to make much of an impression during that decade.

In May 1962 England returned to Lima for a second international game against Peru which would act as a warm-up to the World Cup which was to be held in neighbouring Chile shortly afterwards. Walter Winterbottom was still in charge of the England team and a number of players from the 1959 game were still present – Jimmy Armfield, Ron Flowers, Jimmy Greaves, Johnny Haynes and Bobby Charlton. The full England line-up was: Ron Springett (Sheffield Wednesday) – GK, Jimmy Armfield (Blackpool), Ray Wilson (Huddersfield Town), Bobby Moore (West Ham United), Maurice Norman (Tottenham Hotspur), Ron Flowers (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Bryan Douglas (Blackburn Rovers), Jimmy Greaves (Tottenham Hotspur), Gerry Hitchens (Inter Milan), Johnny Haynes (Fulham) – Captain, Bobby Charlton (Manchester United). Both Moore and Norman were making their England debuts.

This time England played with a 4-2-4 formation which was much in fashion at that time. The fullbacks were Armfield and Wilson with Moore and Norman, the debutants, at centre-half. Charlton and Flowers made up the midfield and up front were Douglas on the wing, Hitchens at centre-forward with Greaves and Haynes as inside forwards outside him.

This was the first senior international for the Peruvian national team since losing to Colombia in the South American qualifiers the previous May and six players made their Peru debut versus England – Guzman, Bazan, Lobaton, Mosquera, Zevallos, Zegarra. Donayre won his 2 nd Peru cap, nine years after his 1 st . The team was coached, for the first time, by the Brazilian Jaime de Almeyda who was also the manager of Alianza Lima at the time. To warm up for the England game Peru had played two friendlies against Spanish club Real Zaragoza who featured Juan Seminario, hat-trick hero from the 1959 game and reigning La Liga top-scorer, in their side. They also had another Peruvian in their ranks, veteran defender Guillermo Delgado. Seminario scored twice in a 4-1 Zaragoza win in the first game but Peru won 3-1 in the second.

The Peru team was: Rodolfo Bazan (Alianza Lima) – GK, Willy Flemming (Deportivo Municipal), Adolfo Donayre (Alianza Lima), Rodolfo Guzman (Alianza Lima), Juan de la Vega (Alianza Lima) – captain, Manuel Grimaldo (Alianza Lima), Víctor Zegarra (Alianza Lima), Nicolas Nieri (Sporting Cristal), Hugo Lobaton (Sporting Cristal), Alejandro Zevallos (Centro Iqueno), Oscar Montalvo (Deportivo Municipal). Later on in the game Humberto Arguedas of Universitario would replace de la Vega and Nemesio Mosquera, also of Universitario, replaced Zegarra. Flemming, de la Vega and Montalvo remained from the previous meeting in 1959.

De Almeyda had hoped to include Guillermo Delgado and Juan Seminario from the touring Real Zaragoza, who had agreed to release them, as well as other Peruvians playing overseas such as Juan Joya and Miguel Loayza but was refused permission to do so by the Peruvian FA. They argued that they had to take into account the long-term future of the national side and not consider the result of just one game.

The game, at 3:45 pm on the 20 th May at the National Stadium in Lima, was attended by around 32,000 spectators. The referee, as for the game 3 years previously, was Erwin Hieger. England played far better than in 1959 and the young debutant centre-halfs Moore and Norman were rarely troubled despite the good play from Montalvo and Zegarra in the Peruvian attack. After quarter of an hour England were awarded a penalty which was converted by Flowers. Greaves then scored a hat-trick between the 24 th and 40 th minute giving England a 4-0 half-time lead. The England forwards continued to torment the Peruvian defence in the second half and nly a fine performance by Bazan in the Peru goal prevented further English goals. After the game the England team attended a reception at the Lima Cricket club hosted by local English residents. They then left for the World Cup in Chile where they would be defeated in the quarter-finals by eventual champions Brazil.

Expatriate players

Nolberto Solano is by far the most succesful Peruvian player to have plied his trade in the English leagues. After moving from Boca Juniors to Newcastle United in 1998 to became the first ever Peruvian to appear for an English club he made 240 appearances, scoring 45 goals, in two highly succesful spells with the Tyneside club punctuated by a season with Aston Villa where he finished as the club’s player of the season.

After leaving Newcastle he spent a season with West Ham United before leaving for short stints in Greece with Larissa and back home in Peru with Universitario. In 2010 he returned to the English game when he signed for Leicester City and later that year moved to Hull City before finished his career at Hartlepoool United. During the latter part of his time at Hartlepool he also combined his playing career with coaching duties at Northern League side Newcastle Benfield.

In 2000 Ysrael Zuniga became the 2 nd Peruvian to play in England when he joined Coventry City, then of the Premier League, for £750,000 in January 2000 following a very debut succesful season with FBC Melgar of Arequipa in which he scored 32 goals. Zuniga was almost joined at Coventry by his Melgar team-mate Walter Zeballos but that transfer broke down due to passport problems.

During the 2 nd half of the 1999-2000 season Zuniga scored two goals, against Bradford City and Sheffield Wednesday, in 6 games. The following season he found the net only once in 15 league appearances, against Manchester United at Highfield Road, and Coventry ended up relegated. Another goal came in the League Cup away to Preston North End. In total he managed only 4 goals in 30 appearances with the Midlands club before moving to Estudiantes of Argentina.

On 1 st July 2007 two more Peruvian footballers moved to England – Claudio Pizarro and Miguel Mostto. Striker Claudio Pizarro had spent a number of succesful seasons playing in the Bundesliga scoring 100 goals in 240 games with first Werder Bremen and then Bayern Munich before joining Chelsea on a free transfer. He got off to a promising start, scoring on his Premier League debut as Chelsea beat Birmingham City 3-2 at Stamford Bridge.

However, following Jose Mourinho’s replacement by Avram Grant Pizarro fell out of favour and moved further down the striking pecking order after Chelsea signed Nicholas Anelka in January 2008. He managed only one other goal in Chelsea colours, also against Birmingham City in the return match at St. Andrews. He finished with a record of 2 goals in 31 appearances, the majority of them as substitute. The following season he returned to Werder Bremen for a very succesful loan spell and re-signed for them permanantly in 2009.

Miguel Mostto finished at the top scorer in the Peruvian Primera Division in both 2005 and 2006 scoring 18 and 22 goals respectively. His goalscoring exploits resulted in him being signed by Championship side Barnsley for a fee in the region of £350,000-£400,000. His only goal in 14 appearances during the 2007-08 season came with a second-half equaliser at home to Burnley in October. In January 2008 he was allowed to join Peruvian club Coronel Bolognesi for the rest of the season. The following season Mostto struggled with personel problems as a result of his young son’s serious illness and homesickness because his family had stayed in Peru. Barnsley allowed him to go back to Peru for a short period to deal with these matters but he returned briefly to England and scored his second goal for the club in the home match versus Watford in November. In January 2009 he returned to Peru permanently when he joined Total Chalaco.

The last Peruvian to appear for an English club, up till now, was Diego Penny. Unlike the previous players, who were all forwards, Penny was a goalkeeper. After making 180 appearances for Coronel Bolognesi from the southern Peruvian city of Tacna between 2004 and 2008, during which time he was also called up for the national team, the 24 year-old Penny signed for Championship side Burnley. He made his debut for Burnley in the opening game of the 2008-09 season but a 4-1 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday resulted in him losing his position to Brian Jensen for the rest of the season. Burnley ended the season by being promoted to the Premier League via the playoffs.

Penny made his only top-flight appearance when he replaced the injured Jensen after 15 minutes in the home game against Wigan Athletic in October 2009. The score was 1-1 at that time but Burnley would go on to lose 3-1. This would be his last appearance for the Lancashire club although he had also played 2 games in the League Cup earlier that season. He started the 2 nd Round tie against Hartlepool United, which Burnley won 2-1, and again replaced the injured Brian Jensen, this time in the 34 th minute, in the 3-2 defeat away to Barnsley in the following round. He left Burnley by mutual consent at the start of the following season following their relegation from the Premier League and signed for Peruvian club Juan Aurich a short time later.

Like Penny, Mark Cook was also a goalkeeper. He started his career at Newcastle United playing for their youth and reserve teams. Nolberto Solano was also on Newcastle’s books at that time but would shortly leave the club for West Ham United. After leaving Newcastle United, Cook ended up at non-league club Harrogate Town. Meanwhile in June 2012 Solano started his managerial career with his former club Universitario from Lima, one of the big three clubs of Peruvian football. His first signing for Universitario was his old team-mate Cook who arrived in Lima to much attention from both the Peruvian and English media, and elsewhere. Cook was the first, and so far only, English player to appear in the Peruvian league in the professional era.

Cook made his Universitario debut in the 1-0 home defeat against Sport Huancayo at the beginning of September. His 2 nd game for the La “U” came two weeks later in Moquegua when the home team Cobresol were victorious 3-0. An injury to his finger then prevented Cook from making further appearances. Universitario’s poor performances in the Second Stage of the Torneo Decentralizado led to Nolberto Solano’s sacking and Cook left the club to return to England shortly afterwards.

English involvement in the early football history of Peru

There is much debate about exactly who introduced football to Peru. Some sources claim that it was English sailors who were responsible during their visits to Callao, at that time a very important trading port, in the late 19 th century by. The sailors would arrange kick-abouts between themselves and the local residents, known as Chalacos.

Others say that it was young Peruvians, or the offspring of English immigrants living in Peru, who brought the game back with them when they returned home after studying in England. Alejandro Garland (1852-1912) was a Peruvian-born writer and economist with an English father and an education gained in England and Germany who, in the early 1870s, tried to organise football games in a small park between the Exhibition Palace and the prison known as the Lima Panopticon. However, this was met with little enthusiasm, even amongst those locals who had also been educated in England, and after the War of the Pacific, fought between a united Peru/Bolivia and Chile broke out in 1879 participation in all sporting activities were halted.

English residents in Lima had already formed a number of sports clubs by that time with some sources claiming that the Lima Cricket and Football club was founded in 1859. Although football was part of the club’s sporting program it’s main focus was cricket. Similar clubs with an emphasis on other sports but with some involvement in football emerged later on. Regatas Lima, formed in 1875, was mainly focused on rowing whilst Lawn Tennis (1884) was the second oldest tennis club in the Americas. Ciclista Lima (1896) was initially only interested in cycling but introduced football into its program following the merger with the Association Football Club (1897) in 1917.

The first documented football match to be played in Peru took place on 7 th August, 1892 at Santa Sofia, a playing field close to the Jose Pardo Institute which belonged to the Lima Cricket and Football club. The game involved residents of Callao, captained by a Mr. Foulkes and a team representing Lima, captained by Pedro Larranaga. The teams were mostly made up of English residents with the remainder being Peruvians. According to some sources the result of the match was 1-1 with neither side finishing with eleven players. In 1895 an “international” match was played between a team made up from Peruvian and English residents of Lima and a team from the crew of the British cruiser HMS Leander. The latter team won 5-0 in front of a crowd of 3000. Similar matches also took place over the next few years.

Jack Greenwell, from Crook in County Durham, began his playing career with his home-town club Crook Town. In 1909 he played for West Auckland during their victorious campaign in the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy tournament, often refered to as “the first World Cup”. He then played for, and managed, Barcelona before managing numerous other Spanish clubs. When the Spanish Civil War broke out in 1939 he fled briefly to Turkey before moving to Peru where he became the manager of both Universitario de Deportes, who won their 3 rd Campeonato Peruano title in 1939 and the Peruvian national team.

The 1939 Copa America was held in Peru in January and February of that year with all games taking place at the National Stadium in Lima. Prior to the tournament four teams – Colombia, Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil – withdrew leaving only five participants – the hosts Peru, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay and Ecuador, who made their Copa America debut. The tournament format was that of a single round-robin schedule where all teams played each other only once.

Peru’s first game was against the debutants Ecuador and they won easy 5-2 thanks to a hat-trick by Teodoro Fernandez, managed by Greenwell at Universitario, and two goals from Jorge Alcalde of Sport Boys from Callao. In their second game, against their bitter rivals Chile, Greenwell used an attacking 2-3-5 formation and Peru won 3-1 with two more goals by Fernandez and another by Alcalde. The same scoring pattern was repeated in the 3-0 victory over Paraguay.

In their final match Peru had to play Uruguay, the strongest South American side at that time. Both teams had 100% records and so the game would decide the title. In front of a full- capacity crowd of 40,000 spectators Peru opening the scoring through Alcalde in the 7 th minute then Victor Bielich added a second after 35 minutes. Uruguay pulled one back just before half-time but Peru hung on to record their first ever Copa America title. Not long afterwards Greenwell moved to Colombia where he coached a number of clubs before dying there from a heart attack in 1942 aged 58.

MORE FROM GOLDEN YEARS

Sportsmail's nostalgic picture series Golden Years features the humble bus this week, with a fabulous new set of photographs from across the decades.

We begin with Motherwell players celebrating at Hampden Park in the 1950s, and take you all the way through to Sir Alex Ferguson's farewell to football in 2013.

We feature many famous names and teams here, and some surprising images too, like AC Milan players walking across a muddy Irish car park and former Liverpool manager Bob Paisley on Manchester United's team coach.

Please feel free to share any of your own memories in the comments section beneath this article, and we'll return next week with more nostalgia.

Here's a picture of a triumphant Motherwell team leaving Hampden Park after claiming victory in the 1952 Scottish Cup final. A crowd of 136,274 saw Motherwell claim a 4-0 win over Dundee, with goals from Jimmy Watson, Willie Redpath, Wilson Humphries and Archie Kelly

Above, Newcastle players ready to board their team bus in April, 1952. Below, Jackie Milburn and Bobby Mitchell arriving at Wembley the following month for the FA Cup final against Arsenal. Newcastle won 1-0, thanks to a late winner from Chilean forward George Robledo

Celtic pair Bobby Collins and Bobby Evans show the League Cup to their fans as they parade on an open-topped bus through the streets of Glasgow in 1956. After a 0-0 draw in the first match against Partick Thistle, Celtic won 3-0 in the replay, with Collins scoring the first goal

Manchester City's German goalkeeper Bert Trautmann resting on the team bus after complaining of rheumatic pains in his neck during training in Eastbourne ahead of the 1955 FA Cup final against Newcastle. A year later, the great Trautmann famously played on at Wembley despite having broken his neck in the FA Cup final win over Birmingham

Another open-topped bus tour here, this time through the streets of Wolverhampton. Wolves stars Bill Slater and Gerry Harris show off the FA Cup in 1960. They comfortably beat Blackburn 3-0 in the final at Wembley, with two of their goals coming from Norman Deeley

Old Gold | 60 years on: Wolves’ 1960 FA Cup victory

It was the eighth time a Wolves side had taken part in England’s showpiece football event and hopes were high on Wolves claiming their fourth FA Cup title in what was a golden era for the club.

Favourites heading into the final, Wolves had won the league title in the previous two seasons and had only been denied a third successive championship during the 1959/60 season by a single point to Burnley.

While their opposition, Blackburn Rovers, had not had a great year, finishing 17 th in their second campaign back in the top-flight. Wolves had also won both league games which had taken place between the sides during the season a 3-1 victory at Molineux and a 1-0 success at Ewood Park.

The 1960 final was one of the warmest cup finals recorded at the time, with many spectators having to be treated for fainting.

This led to the game being played at a steady pace, meaning the final wasn’t the most memorable spectacle in the world – especially for the neutrals watching on their TVs at home.

ROAD TO THE FINAL

Wolves’ long haul to Wembley began with a difficult third round tie against Newcastle United at St James’ Park which ended in a 2-2 draw, but Stan Cullis’ side were victorious 4-2 in the Molineux replay.

A one-sided affair against Charlton Athletic followed, before Wolves travelled to relegation-threatened Luton Town, ending in a final score of 4-1 to the Wanderers.

The quarter final paired Wolves and Leicester City at Filbert Street which the visitors overcame by two goals to one.

The semi-final was an all-West Midlands affair, as Norman Deeley’s goal secured a 1-0 win against Aston Villa at The Hawthorns.

Blackburn needed to overcome three replays to make it to the final, eventually beating Sunderland at Ewood Park, before reaching the fifth round with a 3-0 win against Blackpool.

A shock win over Tottenham Hotspur was followed by victory against heated rivals Burnley, securing Blackburn a place in the semi-finals.

The last-four tie, at Maine Road, ended in a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

CLASSIC MATCH REPORT

Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolves 3 (McGrath OG 41, Deeley 67, 88)

Celebrations rang around the gold and black half of the Black Country as Wolves lifted their fourth FA Cup trophy at Wembley thanks to a dominant final drubbing of Blackburn Rovers.

After a slow start to the game, Wolves began to gain control of the contest and seemed most likely to open the scoring, but it was Blackburn who had the first real chance when Bryan Douglas fired just wide of Malcolm Finlayson’s near post.

Finlayson was also called into action just before half time when he acrobatically denied a Peter Dobing effort, but it was Wolves who took the lead moments later when Barry Stobart delivered a teasing cross that Mick McGrath turned past his own goalkeeper.

Blackburn suffered a further setback just two minutes later when Dave Whelan was stretchered off the pitch and taken to hospital after suffering a broken leg following a challenge with Deeley.

Half-time: Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolves 1

Blackburn started the second-half strongly, but Wolves doubled their lead after 67 minutes. From a corner, Des Horne played a short ball to Ron Flowers, whose cross came back off a defender, but Flowers returned the ball to Horne and his cross ran through for Deeley to slam it into the net from close range.

Horne missed a great chance himself to make it three for Wolves when he was put through with just Blackburn keeper Harry Leyland to beat, but he failed to make proper contact and screwed the ball wide, while Flowers had a goal ruled out for offside shortly after.

Two minutes from the end, Blackburn’s misery was complete as Leyland missed Stobart’s cross and Deeley was there to ram the ball into the roof of the net.

Full-time: Blackburn Rovers 0 Wolves 3

Blackburn: Leyland, Bray, Whelan, Clayton, Woods, McGrath, Bimpson, Dobing, Dougan, Douglas, MacLeod.

Wolves: Finlayson, Showell, Harris, Clamp, Slater, Flowers, Deeley, Stobart, Murray, Broadbent, Horne.

Juiz: Kevin Howley

Attendance: 98,954

When Wolves captain Bill Slater went up to receive the trophy, he was greeted by a crescendo of boos and jeers by the Blackburn supporters following the first-half injury to Whelan.

As Cullis took his players off the pitch, Rovers’ fans vented their displeasure by showering the Wolves players with orange peels, apple cores, stale sandwiches, plastic cups and general rubbish.

After being presented with the cup, Slater said: “We are terribly sorry about the injury to Whelan which was a most unfortunate accident. It took the edge of the game, but I felt we were making progress and just getting on top when it happened.

“Perhaps this latest occurrence will add weight to the case for substitutes to be allowed in the final. Blackburn played pluckily despite their great handicap.”

Millard Military School

In 1953, Colonel Homer Millard and his wife, Esther, opened the Millard Military School on Langlois Mountain. It was patterned after the Millard School that had been in Washington, D.C. In 1962, the school was moved to Bradley Lake in Bandon due to the increasing number of students. Colonel Millard died that year and Esther continued to deliver her quality education for another 19 years. The last class to graduate from the Millard School in Bandon was in 1981. Esther died in 2006 at the age of 96.

The Millard School on Langlois Mountain pre-1962. That site, along with the restored buildings, became “Langlois Mountain Retreat” and later "Highland Woods Group Getaway". Those of you who attended prior to the move will recognize some of the buildings at the above site. Some of you apparently penned your names on a wall in one of the bulidings this has been preserved behind a plexiglas shield. Notice the shield on the flagpole. This shield is presently at the Bandon Historical museum.

Randall Holloway identified the class photo as the class of 1961. He also said that “R House” (seen in the photo of names etched on the wall) stood for “recreation house” and the dog’s name in the top picture was “Benno”.Thanks Randall!

Esther Millard is seen in the photo addressing dignitaries at the school. Notice the cannon which Mrs. Millard donated to our museum. This is the same cannon seen in the color photo sitting in the museum. Because of the weight of the cannon, we have it on display in the gift shop which has a concrete floor (the other floors in the museum would not support its weight). This cannon was manufactured in 1859 by the French. It was captured in the Franco-Prussian War by the Germans. Its only link to Bandon history is its appearance at the Millard School. We think it is a beautiful piece of history and are grateful to Mrs. Millard for donating it to the Bandon Historical Society.

Bill Marvel, Millard class of 1965 has authored a very interesting booklet detailing the story titled The Millard School and Foundation and can be viewed by clicking the link on the title.

Ric Lewallen, Millard class of 1971, also has created several web pages devoted to the Millard School and the students that attended it. You can view those pages by clicking on this Millard Prep School LINK .

The Millards had quite an impact on the lives of many young people throughout their tenure at the Millard School. The Bandon Historical Society often gets emails from former students who attest to their positive influence. Homer and Esther are both interred in the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon.

The following listing contains names that the Bandon Historical Society has obtained from various sources. Where possible, the year of expected graduation has been included. If you would like your name added to this list, please contact Museum's Executive Director. If there is a correction needed on these pages, please contact the webmaster.
