Very true, it gave (1950s) the team's jersey colours in the match programme as 'Navy Blue'.

But, as others of my age group will bear out, the 'navy' of the late '50s was NOT the same as the navy on the jerseys a few seasons back, which, IMO, was too dark and looked dreadful (like the jerseys of Scotland's football and rugby union sides).

I seem to recall it (late '50s) was only slightly darker than the later 'royal' blue of the '60s.and beyond.

I've just remembered one Christmas carol which was very popular when I was at Crommy Boys in the late '50s. It went like this I think.


While shepherds washed their socks by night


All seated round the tub


The Angel of the Lord came down


And gave them a bl**dy good scrub


Happy days - long ago

(Shorts are white with both).


So glad to hear this. It annoyed me when they wore the blue jersey with white V and then blue shorts.

Should look much better I think.

In Topic: Sponsorship

Additionally we are offering 'fans' sponsorship at £75 per player. For this you'll get a replica shirt and your name alongside your chosen player in the match programme & on the website (a kind of "Roll of Honour") for the full season. If you like you can also be presented with your shirt at the launch night in Feb at the same time as your chosen player, and get a nice photo as a souvenir.

This is a new initiative & I think all numbers are still available. Please email the club if you're interested. Or send me a text on 07932 500731. Thanks for your support.


Sounds good, and, a snip at only 75 quid, methinks I'll consider this.

If it wasn't for Riggy we'd never get a mention. Keep pluggin' away Ian, you're our star of the printed word.
