Now this must be the programme for the game which was featured in that amateur cine film. We did agree on that eventually, didn't we? Jim Fryatt and all that. A "fellow twin striker of some repute" for Robins Tubbs.
So the "Northerners" (in this case Workington) played "well above their station". Cheeky blighters!
Sorry to sound obsessed by the adverts but that's quite a business portfolio for the A.J.Brush Organisation. Could it also have included gangsterism on the Essex marshes down at the wharf? Not saying it did; not saying it didn't. But there were rumours around Layer Road in those days about "the Organisation". Love the logo! Forty-five years later just imagine them tweeting about gravel and wharfingering (if that's the right expression).
"Terrace Topics" by Terracite. One of those quintessential 1960s programme features I guess. Not sure about the pseudonym; it's got me thinking of terrapins.
Is that Duncan Forbes I see at centre-half for Colchester? Didn't he? Yes, he did. On loan in 1976.
Everything, it appears, is suddenly happening for young David Lamont. Sadly not. He managed the minimum Football League career record by notching up a solitary substitute appearance. Perhaps he became a wharfinger with the Organisation?

Yes, I think we did. Although some doubt was cast, I believe a consensus of opinion was reached. If Lummaton Cross is concerning himself with the amateur film, then I'll take a look at the more professional offerings. If your matchday programme has the lucky number entitling you to two free seats at the Colchester Odeon you'd be in store for a treat as it claims to be 'one of the most comfortable cinemas in East Anglia'.
So it's just a matter of deciding what to watch. 'Those Magnificent Men In There Flying Machines' gets Up Tiddley Up Up my nose, so I'd give that a miss and opt for Marlon Brando, Sophia Loren, and Charlie Chaplin.
'A Countess from Hong Kong is a 1967 British comedy film and the last film directed, written, produced and scored by Charlie Chaplin. It was one of two films Chaplin directed in which he did not play a major role (the other was 1923's A Woman of Paris), and his only colour film. Chaplin's cameo marked his final screen appearance. The movie starred Marlon Brando, Sophia Loren.The film's theme music, written by Chaplin, became the hit song This Is My Song for Petula Clark — a UK no. 1 and US no. 3'.
