Place names - a WHUFC XI

Postby pablo jaye on Mon Aug 07, 2017 9:07 pm

On hols in Suffolk at the moment and travelled through Carlton Colville today, not far from Lowestoft. It got me thinking about a West Ham XI, whose names are also place names ... there is also Sheringham up here, Cresswell in Northumberland, Robert 'Turnham' Green and Jose Font(e)well also spring to mind.

...any more?
