How Times Change

1959 Miranda Under 12's A smallerMiranda is one of the oldest and continuous junior clubs in NSW.

It is located in the Sutherland Shire along with a two or three more junior clubs.

The club is known as the Miranda Bombers and many long years having spawned many senior footballers into the Sydney competition as well as forming a foundation for many young people who would later become leaders in their field.

We were provided with the attached photograph taken in 1959 at the Boystown field at Engadine.  It is the Miranda Under 12 team who were to go on to win the premiership that season.

Coloured photographs of that period are quite rare and we are very lucky to have it in our collection.  The names of the members of the team are enumerated under the image and you will see the likes of Vince and Pat McCourt, Peter Kilmister and Chris Huon, who later took up umpiring having a very successful career in Sydney in the late 1960s-70s.

If you have any old photos, send them into us for general presentation.
