Beginning Of The Great Wiggenhall Wanderers - a Memory of Wiggenhall St Germans.

How well I remember the forming of our local football team.
It came about after everybody would play outside our local primary school, teams of twenty or more each side with ages ranging from small children to ancient grandparents right through summer months until late at night.
It was decided at one such game that we should form a team. a meeting at one of the local pubs "Checkers" and a team evolved. Two team were formed one playing in Black & White stripes and one in orange and white.
A ground was lierally manufacured on an apple field about a mile out of town with an old shack for changing purposes.
What great times I remember watching the team play, of course I was too young, but that young wag Chenery got a game at an early age.
Great times..Great Community..Sorely missed
