Some months ago I wrote about a local cup final that took place at Fratton Park in April 1965 between Cosham FC and Crusaders FC.
It was the Oscar Owers final and, like all finals at the time, it was played at ‘s famous old home.
I wrote a short report about the losing team but Paul Seiden-Stucker, of Stubbington, has gone one better as he was in the winning team and included a colour photograph, very rare even for 1965.
Paul tells me the Crusaders, despite missing a penalty, went on to win the trophy 3-1 and he scored one of the goals.
In those days of the 2-3-5 formation, the Football Mail reporter tells of the halves (three half-backs) assisting in defence and getting attacks moving. Andy Awford take note.
In the evening the team celebrated their win at Kimbells in Osborne Road, Southsea.
