footballers, the football itself was then made of leather and if it was raining
being leather it soaked up the rain and just got heavier and heavier. The
ball had an inner tube which is why there are laces on the ball and you can
rest assured when I was playing and headed the ball it was usually on the
laces and boy was that sore.
Can anyone tell me what the letters C P R on their shirt badge stands for
and why they were called Whites?
