Hi all,
Woolavington, not far from Bridgwater.
A fair way from Bath then, although my wife used to have family in Stawell and I've played football against Royal Ordnance Puriton a long time ago (I think both factory and football team are long gone?)

I played for the ROF for years! So our paths may have crossed!? The factory has gone, along with the football team sadly.

It would have been in Somerset Junior Cup on a Sunday, and at least 30 years ago, we all met up by the motorway in Bath and came down in a convoy. From what I can remember getting into the ground was quite complicated? You definitely started with eight players, but still managed to stuff us.

cheers Darrel
