Welcome to the website for all former LSSO players

This archive and memorabilia website was established in 2000 for LSSO players from the Eric Pinkett era (1948 to 1976) but it is now a website for all players from all eras. The archive contains photographs and press articles as well as links to photographs, videos and audio downloads. The site continues to develop and all new materials will be welcome so please feel free to get in touch.

Please check the website now and again for details of forthcoming reunions. It's possible that an event may take place to mark the 70th anniversary in 2018.

A more informal get-together of friends may happen in 2016 to start planning for 2018. Please contact Richard Hallam if you could spare some time to help organize this.
