EDITORS COMMENTS
In this nostalgic print captured by Bill Ellman, we are transported back to the 1970s, a time when football clubs embraced tradition and camaraderie. The London contingent of Leicester City football club is seen gathered around a table, indulging in a quintessentially British ritual - enjoying a cup of tea. As they sip on their steaming beverages, anticipation fills the air as they discuss their upcoming match with Arsenal. The image showcases not only the players but also an integral part of any sporting event - Mrs Clarice Laxton, the dedicated tea lady. Dressed impeccably in her uniform, she adds warmth and hospitality to the scene. Her presence symbolizes the importance of community and support within sports teams. Amongst these familiar faces are Jon Sammels, Alan Birchenhall, Keith Weller, Len Glover, Dennis Rofe and manager Jimmy Bloomfield. They exude confidence and determination while dressed smartly in suits - a stark contrast to today's tracksuits and jerseys. This photograph encapsulates an era where football was more than just a game; it represented unity and shared experiences. It reminds us that even amidst intense competition on the field, moments like these allowed players to bond over simple pleasures like tea-drinking conversations before facing formidable opponents. Bill Ellman's snapshot serves as both a visual time capsule for football enthusiasts and an ode to cherished traditions that have shaped our sporting culture throughout history.
