Over the years we have been very fortunate to enjoy many successes, and we have been blessed with good, dedicated players, and loyal and enthusiastic supporters. This is the scene of celebration at the end of the 2014 Whitworth Cup final --in which we beat Treeton to lift the trophy for the eighth time in ten finals. (Pic: Tom Dobson)

Nostalgic pic of the ground at Whitley Hall in 1980, originally posted by Mick Walpole on the Ecclesfield & Chapeltown Through Time page --and certainly deserving of a plzce on the WHCC page and on the club website. No doubt it will stir a few memories.

Nostalgic pic of the ground at Whitley Hall in 1980, before the changes that came when we applied for promotion to the South Riding League (we were admitted in 1983). Many improvements have been completed since then, but we can still look back with pride on “the way we were”!
