A Conversation with Cullompton

 The recent mention of Cullompton RFC reminded Peter Cloke
of this conversation on the phone one Saturday morning

in 1968 with the Captain of the Collumpton RFC:

 Cully capt:

    Is that you Peder? John 'ere

 Me: 

    Yes hello John

 John

    Any o' the lads there farncy a game s'arternoon?

 Me

    Don’t know John - I’ll ask at breakfast for you. How many do you need?

 John 

    Well - we got six players 'ere ... !

 

... and Taff remembers from the 71/72 season : "I remember playing for Cully one Saturday when we had 8 farmers and 7 Killers in the side plus some of our lads in their 2nd team. In the first team there was Dave Robins,, John Brand, Roger Herd, Johnny Pye, Derek Jones, Pete Bradbury and myself! I can't remember who played in their 2nd Team"
