I'd really like to connect with anyone who has any information about this friendly match. I'd also like to hear from any family descendants (I'm from the Charlesworth side but interested in Coverdales history, too).

Many thanks

The BBC's One Show may be able to help you as apparently they traced descendants of the two families to stage a re-match in 2015. Here is a link to the story:-

Hi Kath

Thanks so much for responding. I was actually at that rematch but didn't think to ask the One Show for help - but I will do now.

Huge thanks
