On behalf of Spalding United Football Club I would like to thank Mr Clive Herd, of Nuccio’s cafe in New Road, Spalding for getting in touch with the club and letting us reproduce an early photo that he had found of the original 1920-21 squad of Spalding United.
The photo, in postcard format, belonged to Clive’s great grandmother Clara, who ran the famous family fish and chip shop in New Road.
With the 90-year anniversary of the club I thought it would be a good idea to have the photo restored and present it to the club for this special landmark in the club’s history.
I took the photo to Welec in New Road, where they did a great job in taking creases out of the photo and restoring it to a 12 x 8 size frame.
I was very pleased with the end result and it looks as though the photo had been taken on a more recent occasion.
It will now take pride and place at the club along with the other team photos of seasons past and present.
