The Football Years - a Memory of Ascot.
On this very field the F.A cup finals were played. Of course in the imagination of young boys. It served as a picnic venue, blackberrying with Mum and sisters. Today it is a playing field with a small park for the youngsters. Sunday league football is played here now but never with those names Tom Finney, the Stanleys Matthews and Mortenson, Bert Trautmann (the german goalie). Innocent, endearing and at 60 years old when I pass the field I AM STILL NAT LOFTHOUSE!!
Mums gone, sisters moved. I see it every day. A VERY evocative photograph!!
