You may have seen from HERE that the club have offered to pay for a Legends Banner to don the walls of the home of the Black Bank (South Stand) next season.
We have broken the club’s history down into 6 different eras and ask for you to vote for 1 legend from each. This is the first poll with the first era for the club from our birth in 1879 through to 1948.
Voting will be available for just 4 days between now and Thursday before the poll slams shut. The other 5 eras will be available shortly after this. We’re taking it one at a time, each with a legend to name amongst many!
This may be the longest ‘era’ we have defined, but this is perhaps beyond most of our memory. When you also consider that this period includes many years when the club only played friendlies or in the Midland or War Leagues (during WW2) then our time as a ‘league’ football club was actually quite minimal throughout this period.
Lee Croft, Committee member of the DRSG who have played a vital role in the Black Bank movement, has written an article taking a closer look at the 10 legends below. You can read that over on the DRSG website.
But the question is, who ultimately defines this period and takes the title of our first ‘Legend’? You decide!
