Poppies Supporter's Club - Who's Who?
This cartoon of Gordon Inwood was done by George Boston and comes from a Poppies Supporter's Club booklet. A potted history of each team member is within and tells us:-

GORDON INWOOD outside left

One of the Poppies’ most promising youngsters, Gordon Inwood, started football with Rushden A.T.C. and Rushden Juniors as an inside left.

Son of Bert Inwood, pre-war Rushden Town full-back and present trainer, he joined his father’s club at the end of the war, and during season 1945-46 had two trials for Notts. County. He was transferred to the Poppies at the start of the 1946-47 season as an outside-left.

Non-smoker and teetotaller, he is a plumber by trade, and plays cricket for Rushden Town and Messrs. Marriotts’ works team. He is also a keen snooker player and boxing enthusiast.
