Back in Time – City 1956/57

This is a great photo of the Southwell City team, taken shortly after the club reformed in 1955. This photograph was taken at Norwood Hall. At the time, City played home games on Crafts Fields in Southwell, which is now a housing estate.

Back in Time – City 1922/23

Southwell City Football Club was first formed in 1893. This means that the club is now enjoying it’s 125th anniversary.

We are now looking for club photographs, through the ages, which we will publish on the club website in order to show the long history of this football club.

The image above is a great team photo, featuring the Southwell City team of 1922/23. Second from left is Samuel Booth, a coal merchant in Westgate. The man with the towel is Barney Johnson, landlord of the George and Dragon pub (now known as the The Bramley Apple Inn).

If you have an old photograph, negative or a digital copy of any Southwell City related photos, please contact us as we would love to show them on this website.
