FOOTBALL (Keighley Cup Final)
1954 TTHS Keighley Cup Team

Gordon Cooper (front row right, above) remembers (4/4/2011) -
"The match ended in a 3-3 draw and two incidents in the match spring to mind. Firstly, during the match I handled the ball on the line (an instinctive reaction to prevent the ball entering the goal) which the referee missed completely.

Secondly, Derek Duerden, our centre forward broke away to score a last-second winner but the referee had blown up for full time before the ball entred the goal.

The referee's name was Carter and his son was in the 3rd year at Towneley! Potential conflict of interests weren't heard of then!"
