Footy legend Hughie celebrates club history.

A FORMER Boro legend has given his support to the "From Town to Town" project which celebrates Nuneaton's 125-year footballing heritage.

Hughie Morrow turned up at a drop-in session at the town library where he shared some of his memories and press cuttings. In his time, he was a nippy, goal-scoring winger, who played his [euro]rst match for Nuneaton in 1945 at the age of 15, making him one of the club's youngest-ever players. Hughie also agreed to be interviewed for the recently-launched website www.fromtowntotown.org.uk, which forms part of the Lottery-funded initiative.

Members of the project team, including Alexander Russell and Elliot Wynd-Jenn, from North Warwick-Warwickshire and Hinckley College, have been working hard for the past six months to compile information about the various kits, grounds, stats, players, managers and supporters relating to the town football club.

Lorna Stanley, project coordinator, said: "We have had a wonderful response so far and have been overwhelmed by the number of generous donations."

Some of the memorabilia will be on display at the Chilver's Coton Heritage Centre Spring Fair on Saturday, April 18 (10am-4pm).
