Nunhead Football Club

I was born in on New Year’s Eve 1919 in Bellwood Road, Nunhead. When I was about ten I went with my dad to watch Nunhead Football Club who played in the Isthmian League and I went whenever they were at home. The local derby match was against Dulwich Hamlet, captained by Edgar Kail, who was a cousin of my mother; my parents were also friendly with the Nunhead goalkeeper, Eric Mulley. We went to the ground through an alleyway off Ivydale Road and had many happy times there with a crowd of possibly around 250, until the Club had to close when the ground was sold. It will be interesting if anyone else remembers Nunhead Football Club.
