Goalkeeping has got a lot better since the day this photograph was taken. Big woollen jersey in green, slick back hair and arms that look they are trying to a catch a chicken in the farmyard. Note the article for the new “Talkies” moving pictures sweeping the world. Details : match unknown, players unknown. What I do know is that Gorslas is a small town in Wales, north of Llanelli, so not a soccer county. The magazine is Wheatsheaf (1896 -1964) which was a Co-operative Wholesale Society (CWS) national publication with pages of local news added for different co-operative societies. I like it when some of one’s historical interests of football and co-operatives collide, especially when you spot it on the ebay.
