Year: 1934 | Included in Albums: Football

Photo Description

The first 'reformation' of the club took place in 1934, three years after the previous incarnation fell into abeyance following the death of president Count de Serra Largo and their withdrawal from competitions.

The new club committee was fronted by Italian born treasurer Leo Pieraccini and new president George Davidson, who operated a saddler's business. Interesting to note is the black and white hooped strips they are wearing. The team had previously played in red, or red/white striped kits.

They would remain in charge until WW2. Pieraccini remained involved in the club until his retirement in the late 1970s.

    I was delighted to see my grandfather,George Davidson,standing alongside Mr.Pieraccini in the back row.I’d known about my grandfathers involvement with the club all those years ago after meeting a member of the current football team last year.He was keen to find out more information about my grandfathers history and left me his card,which I’ve unfortunately misplaced.
