Manchester1974 1Gunvar 'Tjofen' Hermansson takes a second to pose after the game. In the first half of the 1970's SRUFC went to a couple of tours to Manchester, England. Many are the stories from that time, and we hope to hear them all on site. One of the most talked about memory from Manchester is the legendary mud-game, with the following cold mud bath in a single tub. Luckily, we do not have any images from the bath, but we went deep down in our archives and managed to find a few pictures from the game itself.

As you browse through these vintage photos (Thanks to Thomas Eriksson for letting us use them.), you now have a chance to re-live the spirit and feeling from those tours by signing up for our 50th Year Anniversary Tour. If you are a member of the facebook players page, you can sign up there. If not, contact Alex Eliasson, Peter Wiklund, Emil Telsgård or Peter Hermansson.
