For those of us of a certain age which was the ball of choice as a kid? I spent a lot of my youth at my Nan's she lived in Ferndale Road in the prefabs, and there was always a group of us kids who used to knock for each other to go and play football at Weston Mill.
Only problem was that decent footballs were rare and any puncture would be repaired using a hot knife!
Anyway the ball of choice would usually be a Frido or a Wembley Trophy, these days footballs are so cheap! I don’t remember that being the case when I was a nipper in the sixties.
