Come on you Reds!
I have just been looking through the 'On this day' feature on the website. What memories it brought back looking at those results from 1958 featuring a few goal scorers I can remember. Amazing how many times the names of Ken (Chubby) and Don Aldridge, and not forgetting local 'lad' Kenny Gee, appeared.

A bit before my day I'm afraid , but no doubt great memories.
I like reading about the history of football clubs , (not just Harrow) fascinating how they start and develop.
I wonder how big the crowds were back in those days or even before the war.
Presume they were bigger back then .
I don't remember the Town (as they were then) getting large crowds, except in local derbies against Wealdstone. I can remember a cup match against them when we lost about 7-2 at home (they were in a higher league than us) where the crowd completely surrounded the pitch. I believe that Kenny Gee played against us that day. My father used to take me to some away matches (I believe we could travel in the team coach - there wasn't much away support in those days). We saw the match against Corinthian Casuals (mentioned in 'On this day in 1958) at Surrey's cricket ground at the Kennington Oval.
