Tindale Warriors - a Memory of Tindale Crescent.

I remember going down the field when there was swings, a roundabout and a slide just by the little woods and further up the pit heaps were the so-called big woods. We used to all go up to the little woods and play foxes and hounds and some of the games we had were memories that stay with me even now. I ran away from a childrens' home in 1990 and my mates from Tindale kitted out a shed in an empty house opposite the chippy and converted it into my own little bedroom. Eight months I was in that shed and even had a hand in building the little wall that runs by the West Auckland bus stop next to the club. Aah, to be kids again...
