Records represent a personal point of view since they can be presented in a variety of ways. My aim has been to include as many different names as possible.

League, Cup and Friendly matches have been segregated in some records, but all games are in fact friendly matches once club honor and individual pride are the only matters ever at stake. There may be many mistakes, miss-spellings and omissions in these tables. My 4½ years of research, compilation and writing have not fitted in all the pieces of the puzzle. No goal scorers were recorded in 1950-51 and if records exist, they will be in the columns of the Wembley Observer now filed in Harrow Reference Library. No attempt has been made to seek out consecutive appearances or goalkeeping shut outs. Walter Buckley played more times in goal than anyone else. Barry Gordon was the most regular First XI keeper and Alan Morgan is generally reckoned to have been among the best. Six-a-side competitions are not included in any of the records, nor are matches involving any Manorians team playing against another. Double headers count as two appearances and most Boxing Day games against the O.G.s for the E Witson Trophy are recorded as cup matches and annual fixtures against the School are counted as friendlies. I regret that Captains of all teams except the First XI are not listed since it has been impossible to compile anything’ like a complete record. Individual records for some of the newer players have not been compiled either - their day will come. Many past players are not listed in the appearance’s records - the main list shows all (I hope) of those who have played over 100 games and the supplementary list remembers some ‘famous’ names from the past. No-one deserves higher praise than those listed as Team Secretaries, Match

Secretaries and simply Secretaries in the table of Club Officials. They have formed the backbone of the club for 25 years. Without their efforts our Saturday

afternoons would have been idle and our records lost. The other officials have done sterling work as have the unrecorded organizers of Easter Tours, countless social functions, training sessions and membership.

To all our wives, fiancées, girlfriends, mothers, daughters and sisters who have washed shirts and cooked or helped to provide catering, and to the lads who made teas and served beers, we say ‘Thank You’ a thousand times. Note that Val Grove (floe Keyes) is the only lass to have served on the Committee.

The prime innovators in setting up Old Manorians Football Club in the late 1940's included Fill Wigginton, Frank Hudson and Doug Tomlinson. The bulk of the preliminary work on individual records was completed by Andy Long and R.” Tom” Marshall with Dick Tay helping out on individual, team and club records. My thanks to Maggie May for innumerable cups of coffee, her patience and tolerance.
