‘Boys will be Boys’! is a brand-new exhibition, which will open at Goole Museum this October. Created by Goole local, Phil Collins, in collaboration with the museum, the exhibition tells the story of club and pub team football in Goole during the 1960s and 1970s.
In the build-up to the exhibition, Goole Museum is asking for people to loan any items relating to Goole club and pub team football from the era.
Goole Museum Curator, Dr Alex Ombler, said:
“This exhibition will explore the well-known teams and colourful characters that graced the town’s football pitches on a Saturday and Sunday. It also looks at the culture of the lads who worked hard and played hard. There will be many stories of legendary matches and lots of amusing anecdotes. This was a time when knees were muddy, tackles were tough, and when shorts were short and hair was long!
“We’re asking people in Goole to loan any memorabilia or keepsakes from their footballing days – football shirts, referees kits, footballs, boots, photographs etc. We will add these items to the exhibition and showcase them to tell the story of this era, which many look back to with a great sense of nostalgia.”
Anybody who is able to loan any items should bring them into the museum on Carlisle Street during opening hours, or they can call Alex Ombler on 01482 392777 or email email@example.com
