R.I.P. John Sillett

Quick bit of research to answer my own question ...  and this is how the 1954/55 squad has played out:

Frank Blunstone (23 starts) and Alan Dicks (1 start) are the two guys left that actually featured in the team rather than the squad. 7 left of the total squad ... 

All subject to the usual google/wikipedia caveats etc etc :-)

John Sillett was a squad member but didn't actually make any appearances in the league that season.

Sad news about John Sillett. R.I.P.

It's great to look back on games and trophies won by the team and for John to be part of our first title winning squad is a great honour. Not often I praise teams other than Chelsea and Rangers for winning trophies but Coventry City beating Spurs in the 1987 FA Cup Final was a great day.

I didn't know Bobby Smith played for Chelsea, Peter Brabrook too. I remember him playing for West Ham in the cup final against Preston.

Well, this is awkward!

The Shed End Forum relies on revenue to pay for hosting and upgrades. While we try to keep adverts as unobtrusive as possible without pop ups, we need to run ad's to make sure we can stay online and continue to keep the forum up, as over the years costs have become very high.

Could you please allow adverts on this domain by switching it off. Some of the advert banners can actually be closed to avoid interferance of your experience on The Shed End.

Cheers now!

Sure, I've got it!
