Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Hyde United programme plus adverts.

The following was given to me by my brother, Graeme, who is a lifelong Stockport County fan. (I bet he wasn't impressed with the score)! 
 

I thought there were some interesting adverts in the programme, some of which I have included. I'll post more soon. Enjoy :)

£100 bingo prize - by eck! - interesting the 3/- entrance fee - it says that on top of the old turnstiles on Tinkers Passage.

For any youngsters (ie under 40's) reading this 3/-, or 3 shillings, is now worth 15 pence. To put it in context, I've still got the ticket stub for the World Cup Final game won by England at Wembley just over 12 months prior to this Hyde game, and it shows the admission price was 10 shillings, or 50 pence.

Slater of Hyde seem to think that 'Refractory Brickwork Specialists' is worthy of an exclamation mark. What exactly are 'Refractory Brickwork Specialists'?

Two of my favourite places on the same day - Hyde United/FC and the Folk Club. I saw some great singers there and met some super people.
