Hi Marty, it appears that there are no more responses to Normand's football so I will throw in my two cents worth,as much as memory will allow. Before listing the names I can remember I just wanted to note that when the people such as Russ Knight,Davie Bowes,Bob Shewan,Jeff Willett, Ron Smith,George MacDonald,Norm Burnett, Herb Holmes and myself came up with the idea of a football team for boys 16-19 ,the team would be based in Greenfield Park but would be open to athletes from all over the South Shore,thus the name South Shore Colts, because we were going to be playing against teams in Monreal from areas which had much bigger talent pools than GFPK to draw from. My list of names will also list the home towns of the players and coaches outside of the Park to indicate the success we had with this principle. And so to the names.

Marty, a couple of things I should have added to my earlier missive.--
(1) Ken Phillips was from Longueuil-
(2) Many Thanks to Branch #94 Royal Candian Legion who basically let us use their facilities for our initial organizational meetings and especially our 50/50 weekly fund-raising draws and stayed open for extra hours after each of our home games so that our fans who wanted to have a post-game barley sandwich could do so.
(3) and finally a special nod to our board of Directors who got the whole concept off the ground and kept it running--George MacDonald, Bob Shewan, Alan Globensky Sr, Hugh Meldrum,Frankie Munro, Bob Lunny ,Russ Knight and a couple of others I can't remember. Finally to follow Normands lead I will be sending to you in the next few days scans of our first program from 1966. Thanks. JMcC

Thanks John
