Derek Richardson Chelsea youth never played for the first team but technically  Chelsea's first black player not as most think Paul Canoville.

 

Yeah got a bit of abuse back then I was told,  but not by the fans

Chelsea the Golden Years  

A nostalgic look back at the Golden years of the 1970’s & ‘80’s, a period held dear by Chelsea fans

Brilliant, watching that made me realise the reason I look forward to match days and why a spend a fortune on it, can't wait to the bridge Saturday now. Shame it's not the 80's though

Little roundabout story....

Im working with the nephew of Cliiffy Webb, who gave the Shed its name in the mid 60s. CFC’s in the blood, generations of the family are all Chelsea fans.

In his words “ if it weren’t for Chelsea we wouldn’t  be having this conversation.”

Turns out his old man went to Norwich with Chelsea in the 70’s- met his Mum in the town centre on the piss after the game!

I don't know from which season this is but guess which club has the biggest attendance. Not bad for a club which is supposed to have no history.

Early season by the looks of the pitch condition and not QPR, judging by the number of away supporters !

Current main stand in it's early stages of being built too.

Game played on 12th January 1929 with a 2.30pm kick off.

Our scorers that day were: James Thompson in the 82nd  and Harold Miller in the 88th minutes respectively.

We then beat Birmingham City 1-0 at The Bridge on Sat 26th Jan in front of 56,953. Not a bad attendance for a 2nd Division team...

Harold Miller again scoring.

Before losing 1-0 away to Portsmouth in a replay in the 5th Round.

The initial game was played on Sat 16th February 1929 before 38,474

1-1 draw. Tommy Law scoring for us with a  5th minute penalty.

The replay was played on  Wednesday 20th February 1929 with a 3pm kick off.  Yet 31,966 saw it.

No floodlights back then !

The ref for both Portsmouth games was a Mr Fogg :biggrin:

Again I am indebted to the great bounder friardale site for this info. Cheers:drinks:
