South Durham Steel & Iron v Expansion - Durham County Amateur Cup - 1908

What we know about this image :

Although this poster shows SDSI as the home side, it was in fact Expansion who were at home, accouting not for the Steelworks X1 but for Bishop Auckland Reserves. The reward for Expansion was a trip to play Esh Winning Rangers in the 6th Round.

Played at Caledonians Road; which area is still in use today for the children at St Cuthbert's School, at this period it was Expansions ground cpmplete with Stands, Press Box and dressing rooms!
