Here is a blast from the past. In the “Old Days” most prospective teachers went to “Teacher Training Colleges” and Dudley had their own, “Dudley College of Education” based at the Castle View site (now a housing estate). DCE was a great feed for DK with many students playing for the club whilst still at college and once they had qualified.

This Dudley College team photo was taken in 1976 prior to a match verses the DK 2nd XV. The tin shed in the background was our original “Stand” situated where the new one is today next to the 1st XV pitch.

At least 13 of these players went on to play at DK after they left college and a handful are still regulars at the club.
