Watching Professional Football on T.V. it seems that each time a Player scores he runs to the corner of the the pitch and then slides along on his knees, If he had done that on the East End Park
years ago he would have been a cripple as all the pitches were a type of shale with only grass by the Corner Flags.
We used to walk from Mt.St. Mary's School to E.E. Park, get changed in the open, play on a full size pitch, No Goal nets, Corner Flags etc.
Only bonus was walking home to the Gipton Estate we would cross the Allotments and drag up a Turnip./Swede and gnaw at it all the way up York Road. (Late 1940s we would eat anything)
