On Saturday the 8th July 2017 TFC celebrated its
Back in 1996, all those years ago, a much younger Peter & Eric were
joined by Steve Plumridge, Tony Martin, Glyn Tucker and Mandie Best who sat
around a table in the Totteridge & District Social Club (as it was known back
then) to lay down the foundations of the club we know & love so well today.
One of the more amusing items from those early minutes was
that we only had 6 training bibs because Eric’s sewing machine had broken down – (exciting stuff, just don't know how we survived for so long!)
In that first season, 18 players represented the club in an
Under 13’s team (including the dad of one of today’s players, any idea who? - answers on our facebook page please) with Scott
Sutherby being the first to register with the club and Wayne Bennett finishing top goal scorer with 5 goals. Although they tried their best they went through
the whole season without a win but did manage a couple of draws and to their
credit won the WDC Under 13’s fairplay shield at the end of the season.
