My earliest recollection of Witton is with the Ken Barnes team, I remember Norman Low being the manager.

Strange, I do not think I saw his name crop up in any literature I read whilst researching the book. He must have kept a very low profile.

I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.

Ken was player manager for a period before Norman Lowe ( and I dont think Norman Lowe managed anything lol ) I dont remember Donald tbh kids were not interested in boardrooms, the first Chairman I remember was the legend Tom Stelfox.
RIP Donald

I remember Don Mayer, a good friend of the late David Leather, both lived on Witton Park & he was a very tall, proud man & a very good Wittoner. I don't recall his time as Chairman but I think he followed Tom in that role. I would imagine Gordon Knop would be the man to fill in the blanks.
When I used to write the programmes I would call at David's for the details of the opposition & the match officials & occasionally call at Don's for his input from the boardroom.

Won't it be in THE book?!?

On page 90 in the book "Sons of Albion" showing a team photo 1959/60, Don is the tall man standing in front of the stand in the left hand corner of the photo . Some stars in that team .
