Mr G D Green.
« on: Sat 04 Apr 2020 23:49 »
 Good evening all.
                          I don't normally post on this section of the board, but someone I know through Social Media has sent me a message and this intrigues me,
 I went to a primary school in County Durham from 1964 to 1970 and our headmaster was a Mr Green.
   This person says that Mr G D Green was at one time a Football League referee. I know Mr Green lived in a village called Boldon which is a few miles north of Sunderland and if indeed this is true Mr Green would have refereed in the fifties possibly into the sixties.
 Apparently Mr Green either reffed or lined Brian Clough's testimonial game at Sunderland back in 1967/68.


 I went back to my old school as a volunteer in 1975 and 1976 helping a particular teacher of mine and Mr Green was still headmaster then however that would be just before his retirement from teaching.
 If anyone can help me with this I would be grateful.
  Stay safe and keep very well

Mr G D Green of "Grenfer", Sunderland Road, East Boldon appears in the Football League yearbook list of linesmen for 61/2, 63/4 and 65/6, which are the only years for which I have copies in the 60s. He was not there for 59/60 and had gone by 71/2.  He doesn't appear in "Uptons" which is the compilation of FL referees for all years, so it looks as though he never made the referees' list. I imagine this is your old headmaster and others on here may be able to fill in the missing years. They may also know what League he refereed on during this period-I imagine it will have been the Central or Northern League.

  Thank you so very much.
    After five decades since leaving Junior School I was never aware that Mr Green was involved in the refereeing industry.
    Stay safe and keep very well.

G.D. Green was a Football League linesman from 1961 to 1967. He was on the line for Brian Clough's Testimonial in October 1965 - Kevin Howley was the referee.

 Thank you so much.
    Mr Green passed away many years ago now, but is fondly remembered by myself.
