Playing Football On A Cinder Pitch - a Memory of Whitefield.
My only memory of Whitefield is turning out to play football for Manchester YMCA in a league fixture away from "home" in 1967. It was a reserve team game, we paid our own bus fares to reach the park, I grazed my knees badly on the cinder pitch and we lost!
There were no changing facilities and I dripped blood and cinders all the way back to Manchester on the bus!
