LETTERS: Congratulations to Calder 76

Calder 76.
Calder 76.

I was very pleased to be a spectator at Ryburn vs Calder 76 last week when Calder put in a great performance to become champions of the Halifax premiere league for the first time in their history.

What a great performance for the whole season and congratulations to the manager Rob Kenworthy and all the players and helpers involved.

However as a former player, founder member and treasurer of Calder 76 I would like to point out that the name was changed in 1976 but the club was running for quite a few years before this as Calder High Old Boys.

I am sure an even older former player than me will be able to enlighten us all as to the original formation date.

Once again congratulations to everyone involved with Calder 76 and all the best for the future.

Allan (ALFIE) Walker
