The Club celebrated the winning of the Second Division Championship at the Savoy Hotel. Three hundred and fifty guests along with the directors and players who had brought about this success.
It had been almost thirty years since the Club had tasted major success, winning the Cup in 1921, so also in attendance were members of those previously successful teams – Jack Kirwan, the only surviving member of the 1901 Cup winning team, and Jimmy Seed and Arthur Grimsdell from the 1921 team.
The Chairman paid tribute to the manager and to the ‘team spirit’ that was so much in evidence.
On this day in 1961, at the same venue, the Club held a celebration banquet to mark the winning of ‘The Double’.
