MAYC National Champions 1980

By Eamonn Staunton

In May 1980, Friendship House YC from Wandsworth Road, London SW8 were successful in beating the Northern Champions from Liverpool 1-0 in the Football Final at the Royal Albert Hall. Many MAYC visitors to London may have stayed the weekend at this address in South London during the MAYC festivities and may have fond memories of the church and its buildings!

The football team consisted of Dave Bourne, Eamonn Staunton, Chris Douglas, Kevin Woods and Gary Sterling. Our substitute thoughout was Micky Cullen. It was an amazing day, a great weekend and a memory to cherish. The MAYC was run for many years by Maurice and Margaret Morton, who were highly respected in the community. Sadly, Maurice passed away many years ago but Margaret is alive and well and living in Oxfordshire!
