Horsforth Fairweather FC

The HFFC History Pages - Team pictures through the years.

  Welcome to the Horsforth Fairweather FC pictures pages.

  Not trying to make excuses, but a lot of these pictures were taken with (even for the times) antiquated equipment, in trying circumstances, so please don't be too harsh on the photographer.

  Anyone who thinks they have been misidentified, please use the email link above to let us know.



HFFC 1980-81.

Back: John Field, Rob Phillis, Mal Clements, Paul Kenyon, Mark Bickerdike, Martin Riley, Ray Child.

Front: Bernie Gilmore, Chris Shenton, Steve Burns, Pete Gable, Chris Fitzgerald, Andy Lewis.

The first ever HFFC team pic, was taken at Butcher Hill on 28th September 1980 by Billy Potter. Golden Lion were the visitors that day.



A rather ad-hoc group, presumably half-time at some game in 1980-81.

John Field, Rob Phillis, Ray Child, Martin Riley, Steve Watson and Mark Bickerdike. Plus Big Ian (no idea why he is stripped to the waist, sorry).



A particularly amateurish photo (sorry!) from the Final of the "Fearnville Trophy", unofficial competition held at the Sports Centre.

Back: Martin Riley, Ian Clayden, John Field, Paul Kenyon, Ray Child, Steve Watson.

Front: Mark Bickerdike, Pete Gable, Steve Burns, Tim Hirst, Chris Shenton.

Fearnville Sports centre, 30th May 1981.



HFFC 1981-82.

Back: Mark Sweeney, Mark Bickerdike, Dave Vernon, Martin Riley, Rob Phillis, Ray Child, Bernie Gilmore.

Front: Bruce Tremlett, Andy Lewis, Simon Hockney, Mal Clements, Tim Hirst, Paul Kenyon (I think!)

A recently rediscovered, and appallingly over-exposed, pic of the team that opened the 1981-82 season with such confidence, so disappointed to lose 4-3 at Becketts on the opening Sunday. Carr Manor, 13th September 1981.

Photo definitely one of mine, as if you hadn't guessed.



HFFC in yellow away kit of 1981-82 vintage.

Back: Mark Sweeney, Martin Riley, Ray Child, Bernie Gilmore, Rob Phillis, Dave Vernon, Mark Bickerdike, Steve Watson.

Front: Tim Vickerman, Simon Hockney, Bruce Tremlett, Chris Fitzgerald, Andy Lewis.

Judging from the poor quality of the picture, it's probably one of mine. As a guess I'd say the venue is Suttons, the home of Shoulder of Mutton, which would make the date 8th November 1981.



A particularly bizarre shot of the yellow shirts on someone's washing line.

Sometime in 1981-82, I guess.



The HFFC Supporters' Club, 1981-82. Chris Fitzgerald, Ian James, Cath Helliwell, Ian Clayden, Tim Hirst, Mal Clements, and seated Andy Lewis.

Photo probably by me, I was always keen to capture silly stuff like this in those days.



HFFC 1982-83.

Back: Martin Riley, Tim Vickerman, Mark Sweeney, Mark Bickerdike, Bernie Gilmore, Simon Holmes, Mark Burrows, Rob Phillis, Andy Lewis.

Front: Steve Burns, Simon Hockney, Ian James, Ray Child, Craig Oddy.

Photographer was probably Helen, hard to guess the venue though.

Back: Simon Holmes, Tim Vickerman, Mark Sweeney, Mark Burrows, Bernie Gilmore, Martin Riley, Rick Slack, Ray Child, Neil Oddy (Manager).

Front: Dave Vernon, Tim Hirst, Steve Burns, Steve Palmer, Simon Hockney, Craig Oddy.

Taken at Bedquilts on the day we should have played Merry Monk, 4th September 1983. No idea who took this one.

Front: Ian Jagger, Tim Hirst, Steve Burns, Craig Oddy, Howard Churchill.

Picture looks like Fearnville Sports Centre, so probably a pre-season friendly but can't pin down the date. Photographer unknown.

From the line-up, I think this was the home game with Blenheim Albion, 31st March 1985. Photographer Mrs Hirst?

Back: Mark Bickerdike (Manager), Tim Vickerman (and trunks), Mark Burrows (yes, I've had to censor this one), Ray Child, Mark Sweeney, Tim Hirst, Neil Oddy.

Back: Dave Vernon (and Michael), Mark Bickerdike, Mark Burrows, John Steenson, Ray Child, Neil Oddy, Mark Sweeney (and Adam).

Front: Billy Potter, Chris Fardon, Tim Vickerman, Simon Vickers, Simon Hockney, Steve Burns, Craig Oddy.

Going by the fact that The Sweeney isn't playing, I reckon this was the Blands Arms game on 29th September 1985 - the last match Mark missed before injury ended his career in the summer of 1990, 124 games later.

Roundhay pitch 5 is the venue, I suspect the photographer was Heather.



Post-match inquest outside changing rooms at Roundhay: Simon Holmes, John Steenson, Billy Potter, Mark Bickerdike, Craig Oddy, Mark Burrows, Ray Child, Simon Vickers, and doing his Ian Curtis impression, Dave Vernon.

I reckon this was the Negas RO game on 20th October 1985.
