Shown above is a photo from the Chelsea archives of our head groundsman for many, many years George Anstiss, and his pet dog looking at the playing surface in the goalmouth at the north end of the ground. The old north terrace and a rudimentary electronic scoreboard can be seen behind the goal. George’s son John is still on the groundstaff today.
The Blues produced a memorable display away at Southampton recently, running out 2-0 winners at the end of last month, and when we visited their old stadium, The Dell, in 1981, it was a game one player in particular will always remember.
Young goalkeeper Steve Francis (pictured behind Colin Pates), who was just 17 at the time, started in goal for us that night, making his Chelsea bow in the first leg of a Milk Cup tie.
The game finished 1-1, with Mike Fillery's second-half equaliser cancelling out Kevin Keegan's opener for the Saints. In the second leg, Fillery also scored a decisive goal to secure our progression after extra-time.
In the image above, which was taken in 1924, Andy Wilson is pictured polishing the floor in his new home, although he doesn't appear to have dressed accordingly, with his outfit more suited to a glamorous awards ceremony.
A skillful and intelligent player, Wilson spent nine seasons at Stamford Bridge, scoring 61 goals in 253 appearances for the club.
Legendary Spain keeper Ricardo Zamora trained at Stamford Bridge on 7 December 1931 and was clearly of interest to the media of the day.
England beat Spain 7-1 at Highbury two days later. The Spanish equivalent of the ‘Golden Glove’ trophy is named after Zamora, who enjoyed a wonderful career playing for Barcelona and Spain and later managing his country.
