Old England v Kilmarnock

Post by Steve Bell » Fri Feb 21, 2014 7:08 am

Does anyone have any information on this match? It was played at Grosvenor Park, Belfast on Wednesday, 20th October 1954.

I can find nothing in the press concerning the match and only know about it through seeing the programme on ebay.

Thanks.

Dawson Simpson (Lisburn Distillery club historian) should know the answer to this.

I will ask him and revert.
