I recently purchased a copy of the celebration dinner menu for the East Ham “Prims” Football Club on winning the London Methodist Cup in the 1936 – 1937 Season and wanted to share it.
In looking into the team I found, on the East Ham Methodist Church website, a photograph. One of the church members at East Ham has been able to identify the goalkeeper in the picture as Dennis Leader. The other team member she can definitely name is Mr E (Ted) Jarman who is pictured second from the left in the front row. Both feature as proposers of Toasts on the menu. Den Leader was also the Hon Sec listed on the back page. There was also a further photograph of a membership card for the cricket club from the following year with many of the same names on it.
The church had uploaded the photographs so that they do not disappear into obscurity and have kindly agreed that I can reproduce them here alongside the Menu.
If you would like to know a little more about the church and its current work please visit their website http://easthammethodist.christianityinview.com/
If anyone has any information about the teams or anyone in them or indeed about the London Methodist Cup competition it would be wonderful to record it here as I can find nothing about it on the internet myself.
