Afternoon Bob.

Bootle Celtic played in the Senior(South) Division in the 1946/47 season finishing 11th of 14 teams.

Home ; Orrell Pleasure. Secretary S. Reeves , Summers Avenue, Bootle.

Some players; Charlie Donnelly, Stanley Thornton, Davies (OL), Hickman (GK).


A different side named Bootle Celtic applied to join the JOC for the 1947/48 season in the Senior (North) Division.

1953/54 was Bootle Celtic's final season in the JOC, ending as Division 1 Champions.

Club secretary; C.S. Allen, Goldsmith Street, in later years moving to Masefield Crescent, Bootle 10.

Home; Orrell Pleasure.

Shirts; Black/amber halves.

Incomplete list of the players involved included, Arthur T. Millington (IL), Ben Roberts (IR), Harry Walker, Les Goodman, Billy Delbridge,

There was also a John Mulholland playing for Bensons in the 1953/54 season.


Re; George Scanlan. Appended a cutting from April 6 1951 Bootle Times to the second post.

George Scanlan was a prolific inside right for Everton D in the 1950/51 season.

Think I've got the correct Bobby Boardman. By my reckoning born 1936.

Prolific scorer for Cyprus and Winifred Sports in the late 1950's.

1954/55. 57 goals for Cyprus.

Image

1955/56. 64 goals for Cyprus.

Image

1956/57. 27 goals for Winifred Sports

Image

1957/58. 30 goals for Winifred Sports.

Image

1958/59 Division 1 Champions and Everton Cup winner with Winifred Sports beating Bensons 3 - 2 in the final.

Image

Image

The teams.

Image


1959/60 Harwood Cup Winner with Winifred Sports, scoring 2 goals in the final against Alexandra.

Image


Still one of the best headlines I've seen.

Bootle Times October 25 1957.
