Following Sheffield Boys Under-11s triumph in the Green ‘Un Cup we asked readers for memories of previous Sheffield Schools football triumphs.
And the request turned up trumps as Michael Burke of Middle Hay View, Sheffield recalled the first success by a city side in the competition: He writes: “I was interested to read that we had won the Green ‘Un Cup for the first time in 20 years. I was part of the Sheffield team that won the cup in 1968, which I believe was the first time it had been won by us. The photo shows David Ford of Sheffield Wednesday presenting the trophy after we beat Scunthorpe in front of 700 spectators at Myrtle Springs.
Peter Markie of The Star sportsdesk reported our matches and wrote about us on several occasions.”
