Purley Frisbee Team 1977

The Purley Frisbee Team 1977 -


Lots of comments on the Purley Facebook page about this photo:


David Rogers I can remember a lot of sniggering in Assembly when Dogs used to read out the sports results. I think Nick Way used to arrange a match with Ally Pally Tossers every week - just so that he could hear one of the teachers use the word "Tossers".

Richard Lucas Some of the participants lived near me and it all became quite cool. It's sad to have to report that Aston Moody-who was a really nice bloke-died a short while afterwards, coming back from a tournament as I recall. Absolutely tragic and affected the whole feeling around the frisbee 'thing'...

Steve Watt Can we just add Purley reached the finals of the U.K. Ultimate championship in 1979 only losing to Cambridge uni as they had played less games
