Ray Hill This is a mistake . This is the Silverwood side that that played in theRotherham Charity Cup against ParkGate and lost 3-1 on Millmoor the day after the Montagu Final . There was a couple of changes due to injury I think otherwise same names . The bloke in the middle of front row is Jimmy Sansome who scored in Montagu Final . The Silverwood side we’re still knackered from the Final the day before. They couldn’t get it postponed .
