1. John Kirk 2. Stan Rickaby 3. Len Phillips 4. Harry Merrit 5. Dennis Pring 6. Eric Bryant 7. Bobby Barker 8. Bill Gillet 9. Wilf Mannion 10. Charlie Austin 11. Horace Cumner
I may Have overloaded just a little with forwards but attack is the best form of defence. Also, one or two of my selections have a 'tongue in cheek' element about them and one or two others get selected just because they were fun to watch.
1. Jan Waganaar 2. Phil Ferns jnr 3. lamin Dibba 4. Ashley Coombes 5. Michael Walker 6. Carl Pettefer 7. Paul Maloney 8. Taffy Richardson 9. Tony Funnell 10. Charlie Austin 11. Shaun Brooks. 12. David Platt 13. Martyn Jones 14. Leigh Phillips 15. Andy Crawford 16. Ray Ames
Have changed my mind on Andy Morley who was very solid too prob the best player at club at moment Jack Dickson he will deffo go down as PTFC legend.
Phil, I think you & a few others could do best 1st team for different periods of the club's history. Some like Geoffrey & Sylvia (hope they are ok & coping with lockdown reasonably well) could probably do team from each decade from 1945 until now.
Slightly off topic but with that great rivalry in mind I am not very good at posting links but do go to the Terras website and read the story "Three Men with a dream" about the founding of our beloved foes. one of the founders was Mark Frowde; some of us remember that was the cup played for by the Semi-Pro teams in Dorset. The best part is(is it ever any different???) the nascent Weymouth side (founded 1890) taking on Poole(1886?) at Wareham. Weymouth won the game on a controversial call by the ref. The ref was surrounded by angry Poole fans and the local constabulary were called!! Read it with a glass of something and have a chuckle Whats that old saying "The more things change,The more they stay the same!! Up the Tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooown!!
