Working in partnership!
Durham Amateur Football Trust celebrated National Sporting Heritage Day with an exhibition entitled “A Day out at Wembley” on Saturday 2 October at King James 1 Academy, Bishop Auckland.
Students from the Academy collaborated to produce a new information leaflet for the day and a PowerPoint Presentation to show some of the items of memorabilia in the collection. Trust member and former professional photographer, Phil Graham, also helped students with their photography techniques.
Sixty people visited the exhibition, viewed display boards, objects and scrap books. While Peter Clark led the community singing prior to watching the highlights of the 1954 FA Amateur Cup final, Bishop Auckland v Crook. Older visitors enjoyed reminiscing and children enjoyed learning about the history of amateur football in the area, and taking part in craft activities.
