Thank you


It feels like coming home. I've been away from Brum for 40 years but my heart still lies there. I was born on the warwick road and then moved to Lapley Grove. We later moved to Chelmsley Wood. I loved looking over the balcony to the Lea Ford playing fields. [color=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.870588)]

Hi Edmund Dad Ernie Marsh and Grandad Jack Hughes ran Hayden Rangers, Terry Hughes is my Uncle him and grandparents lived in Hayden Croft. As kids we used to come and watch all the games. Do you remember Ray Haywood, Fred Gager, Nobby Robinson. IknewDave Callow very well until his death. Terry isn't very well at the moment and his son Neil is looking for anything to do with Hayden Rangers so I would appreciate any thing you have on the team. Do you remember my Nan Lily she was fantastic and would tell the refs what she thought them, would love to hear from you

I remember playing over there but this would have been in the late 60s. I played in a team called East Midlands we were supposedly the best players from what was known then as the festival league. 
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Playing for HaydenRgs for 5 years they were all in the South B,ham Sunday Lge,but we did join the Festival Lge for my last year.I then started playing for Weoley Castle in the Worc,Com.Whilst playing for Hayden had a trial for the Villa and could have played for Bounemouth,but my parents said I was to young at 17 to leave home,
