1965

Woodcoombe Football Club however did not just comprise of a group of men who wanted to play football; many had wives and children who looked to the club to provide social activities for their families. In 1965  the Club's first Annual Dinner took place at the Bull Public House in the High Street. 'Pop' Clark,  Team Manager, was there to present the raffle prize of a fold up picnic table, and the wind up record player pushed out the music of the sixties. The wine waiter had 'Rusty'  coloured hair, he decided to join the club having moved into Woodberry Drive in October  1964 ; so enters another character who over the years will play a major part in the development of the Club.

Christmas  1965 saw the first Woodcoombe  ' Father Christmas ' out on Christmas morning, I am sure that over the years many a Woodcoombe child looked on Ray Oddy  as the real Santa, the part was created for him!
