Dore F.C. fixture card - 1964-65




In the early 1960s Dore Football Club were playing in both the South Yorkshire Amateur League (Division 2) and the Hope Valley Amateur Football League. (They had both an A team and a B team). Although the club was by this time in decline, this card records an impressive list of officials and a long list of life members and vice-presidents.

During this season T.G. Wilson was president, J. Priest was chairman and B. Boulton was vice chairman. The rest of the committee consisted of 7 members, J.P. Bustin was honorary secretary and J. Proctor was the club trainer.

There were 3 life members of the club, R.G. Atkinson, J.E. Priest and T.G. Wilson and a total of 38 vice presidents including a doctor and a colonel, reflecting the support the club had received during its glory years.

The list of fixtures indicates that the club had a very full programme.

There were 12 other teams in the South Yorkshire Amateur League Division 2 at this time and 11 other teams in the Hope Valley League.

Besides league fixtures the club also played for the Dore Shield, the Roden Cup and the Lawrence Cup during their 1964-65 season.
