G Charlesworth transferred to Pinxton Dec 1921. "He was with Notts County last season and should strengthen the Pinxton defence"

Report of 19 Jan 1920. Notts County sent players to Skegness for training. (includes Charlesworth)

Report of 16 Dec 1920 Notts Reserves v Sheffield Utd Reserves. Final score 2-2. Includes the comments "Charlesworth gave away a corner" and "Naylor, rushing past Charlesworth, centred for Savage to equalise"

There could well be more football reports , but a lot to search!

Couldn't see anything on Roy for sure, although this might be him, if he went to Trent Bridge School - Report of 29 Mar 1939, relating to presentation of sports and swimming trophies to pupils of Trent Bridge Boys Central School

R Wheeldon, J Whitehead, K Green and R Charlesworth won the following trophies Bond Shield, Portland Swimming Cup (Hopkinson Cup) and the Morley Trophy

Also a couple of reports on local football teams including a R Charlesworth

All the above information ann is my family,additional info from my

brother when my dad swam up the trent he dived to the bottom and came

Up with a loaded revolver,someone reported it to the police and they took it off him,my fathers sporting interests were curtailed when he joined the royal artilary as a driver,I know he drove officers around

My dad won many medals that were kept in his home on ryland cresent

the wardens who knew my grandad salvaged some damaged medals which

my older brother has however most were blown to smitherines.
