Hi guys,

I'm putting together some pieces on behalf of Redcar Athletic FC about the history of football in the town. It's actually really interesting; from local rivalries with Boro in the Sheffield Challenge Cup, to reaching the quarter finals of the FA Cup, to having an ex-Arsenal player as a guest in the local park on Christmas Day.

One thing I'm really struggling with, though, is pictures. Pictures of players, team lineups (Redcar and Coatham, Redcar Crusaders, Redcar Albion, Redcar Borough...anyone), pictures of the Cleveland representative side from the 1800s, or even of the Sheffield representative side from the same time, where Redcar's captain William Harrison would often guest.

I'm from Redcar but I now live in London, and I feel like there's a wealth of information that I'm missing out on that are either in private collections or at local libraries,

Any help or info on the above would be hugely appreciated. Either reply here or you can contact me on nonleaguesnapshots@gmail.com.

Thanks!
