ELY man Steve Cridford has appealed for help in tracking down information on a picture which appeared in the Ely Standard in days of old.

The item is headlined '£53 for charity' and gives details of a one-off charity match between the Ely City team of 1966 - the year England won the World Cup - and a team from city hostelry West End House (pictured).

Ely - aged between 19 and 50 - won the match 6-2. The game was refereed by Vaughn Moll, now manager of Ely Crusaders.

The ex-Ely team featured players such as Norman South, Peter Elsden, Russell Cross and David Pollard, among others.
