50 Years Ago This Month

50 years ago this month, City were crowned Champions of the Notts Alliance Division 1 after a fantastic 1970/71 season. This great team photo was taken shortly after the team was presented with the trophy in May 1971. In the background of the photo you will see the old clubhouse on the War Memorial Recreation Ground.

Over a half of a century later, it is fitting that we are able to look back at this snapshot in time and to recognise a great City team.
