So many happy memories Norman in the 50s such a shame to build on it.Big memories of Leslies sports day every year. Derrick Ibbitson came up to Tyneside after I think sharing the world MILE record under 4 minutes.I remember the inter county school boys football matches played at Leslies when up to 2 thousand folk would turn up to watch,i believe George Armstrong played there one year as a school boy representing the county.I played football on it many times great pitch,the ground included such sports as cricket,tennis, lovely pavilion,i think it was not just a shame building on it it was a bloody distgrace. tb |
