Lenton Hall arial view

An arial view of Lenton & Wortley Hall, with the grounds of Wollaton Hall across the Derby Road, at the top of the picture (taken in the mid 1990's). Lenton Hurst, home in 1988/89 to the "Glorious Leader", can be seen on the left. Block XII, home of the WebMaster, can be seen near the front and to the right, with the post-1991 construction, Wortley House, to its rear.

Former residents of this then all-male student Hall of Residence, on University Park, formed the majority of the Northern Allstars squad during Sid's reign as captain.

75 mealtime

The boys of 75 Lenton Boulevard sit down for one of their daily communal meals in October 1990.

After formal political discussions on the issues of the day, attention would soon turn to Northern Allstars matters. For instance, how Sid could be made to remember the match ball on a Sunday morning.

Rob & Si, two thirds of the Soviet Onion, convince the boys of 75 to purchase their latest merchandise in 1991.

Simon Water's meticulously cleaned Puma Flash football boots inspired much reverence in the Allstars changing room. These two, now golden, boots are awarded to the winning team captain and Man of the Match, respectively, at the reunion game.
