Memory Lane

“I used to play for Quarry, you know”

 

Many thousands of boys and girls have played for the club since we were established more than 60 years ago. Countless games won, drawn and lost. Spectacular goals, heroic tackles, fingertip saves that live on in the memory.

 

We are proud of our history. And we are really grateful for the support and goodwill we receive from many of our former players.

So we’ve dedicated this little corner of our web site to those memories.

 

Here are some photos from the archive that might get you reminiscing. Feel free to send us more. Or comment on what you see. We will keep updating the section so do return every now and then for another look.

This U16s line-up from the 1961-62 season was sent to us by Richard Hexter. He’s third from the left at the back. It’s the earliest photo of a Quarry team we have… unless you can beat that! They played in red shirts and black shorts back then.

Matt Meeson sent us this photo: "It was taken at the old White House ground in Oxford before a cup final against Summertown around 1983, we were under 11's (so I have been reliably informed!) and Quarry Rovers won 1-0. I'm also told it was the last year Quarry Rovers played in Yellow, the following season Luker Bros sponsored the club and the purple kit came in."

Barry has got in touch: "1992, Under 11 (think it's Matt Taylor back left, he dropped down to our team a couple of years later)."
