Moston and Rusholme Junior Football League
« on: 17:33:55, 26/03/13 »
Is there anyone on here who was involved in this league during the 1960s? It involved youngsters up to the age of 16, I think. They played in places like Hough End, Platt Fields and Ten Acres Lane.  Some of the teams in there were Rusholme Rovers, Fallowfield Town, Platt Villa and Clayton Celtic.
My mum and dad were involved in setting up and running the league and my brother played for Rusholme Rovers.
I recall him telling me of the time they played a friendly against a side from somewhere in Europe and the vistors were surprised he and his team mates spoke such good English. They believed they were playing 'Russian Rovers'.
