Crook Town’s 1964 FA Amateur Cup Final Victory remembered

Jude McCourt, daughter of Danny McCourt who is now in his 80th year, with the help of John Phelan from the DAFT, arranged a surprise get together with his former team-mates at her home.  Danny’s wife Marjorie and son Bryan were also present, along with a few members of the Trust.  Jude and Tom were great hosts and a very pleasant afternoon was enjoyed by all, sharing memories, reading through scrapbooks and watching a recently acquired Pathe News film of the 1964 Amateur Cup Final (thanks to Dale Daniels for producing a copy which was presented to Danny).
