Football Club committee which re-launched the club and recruited
The committee members shown here were (from left to right):
Jack T. Phillips - secretary;
Harry Gill - photographer and ground secretary;
Leslie Richard Standen - manager of the Midland Bank and treasurer.
He was also Chairman of the local British Legion.
They were all attending a dinner, possibly held in the Old English
Hotel. A note attached to the photo reads: "Taken

managed Harry Gill's shop on South Parade, Matlock Bath, and was
also his son in law.
