I have looked at my details and copies of newspapers for that season. Sorry but I cannot find any mention of Jim playing for the reserves. I do not have lineups of every game, but enough. The local papers Advertiser and Times did not have details of 'A' team games so the Sevenoaks game was news to me to add to my Palace games. Thanks for that

I have just looked through my 1948-49 programmes and an early programme refers to a 'Kenney, a young centre-forward' playing for the 'A' team so it could be a spelling mistake for Jim.

Later programmes refer to the 'A' team playing all their fixtures 'away' so assume they must be friendlies. Other clubs the A team played against that season as mentioned are Tonbridge, Deal and Dover so Sevenoaks a definite possibility.

The club has recently received an e-mail from Jim's grandson with a pic of the postcard advising Jim to report to Selhurst Park for a game at Sevenoaks.

The club forwarded the e-mail to me and I have replied with the above information but have yet to receive a response.

Thanks for your efforts with this Ian, and also Pete Hurn on the HOL thread

At least a couple of mentions have been found:-



A report of the Sevenoaks game - "Curney"

...and the programme "Kenney"



Which isn't bad considering the guy was pretty much an 'enthusiastic amateur' 70 years ago!

This shows that sometimes, lost relatives often tell their kids and grandkids 'I played for.....", but in reality clubs had not only reserves, but sometimes an amateur 'A' team as well (a kind of 3rd XI)

It's more than we've been able to find for Roy Hodgson's spell as a player here!
