Rotherham United Nostalgia Society meets tomorrow (Thursday, 11th July) when former Rotherham United Goalkeeper Dick Jackson will be the guest speaker.
Dick was a junior at Millmoor, moving to York City in 1954. Things didn’t go so well for the young ‘keeper and he moved back to Rotherham two years later. In March 1957 Dick made his only appearance for the Millers when he kept a clean sheet against Leyton Orient.
Alongside Dick that day were the likes of Jack Selkirk, Nobby Noble, Keith Bainbridge and Robert Brown who scored both Rotherham goals that day.
There’s a chance you won’t have heard of Dick before as he only had the one appearance for Rotherham but he will be able to give you some insight on how football was played in the ‘olden, black and white’ days! And it’s a lot different to now!
The meeting is at The Reach Club, Kimberworth Road (for satnav users the postcode is S61 1AJ) and is 8pm for 8.30pm start.
