Did K's inspire Lowry?

Just back from an art auction where I picked up a limited edition unsigned Lowry print for a bargain price. It's the pencil version of The Football Match (1944), and one of the teams is DEFINITELY wearing hoops! I won't provide a link because of copyright issues, but Google Lowry The Football Match and you'll go straight to it and also the painted version with one team in red tops.

I've got that print up in my house, Krinkly.

I think it's much better than Going To The Match, his similar but more famous work.

Always think it's fascinating how football is basically the only vague form of leisure depicted in his work. Otherwise a completely bleak existence, just traipsing back and forth from terraced house to factory, but then they put a football match on in the centre of the city and hundreds come to watch. Attending your first football match must have been particularly special and exciting in the days before TV.

And he turned down a knighthood.

He's actually a good quiz question answer as the man who has turned down the most honours. Five, apparently. I wonder why they didn't stop asking after the first couple.

Maybe a good question on Knigjthoods and who gives them and for what reason.
The whole system is a farce and a political nonsense so maybe thats why so many refuse
Bit like the perception of heroes and looking around London at men on horseback waving on their men into battle when they,the heroes stayed back.
Having said this there are many heroes and brave and bold men and women who will always be revered with or without political gongs

i was talking to a sculptor from Poland and he specialises in bronze bust statues. he said he'd do K's a deal if we ever wanted one to plonk outside a new ground. But who would we have? Jack Goodchild? Butterworth?

It should be the founder William G Carn.

Without him the club wouldn't have been formed (or worse played Rugby), wouldn't have become the top team in Kingston, the Kingston & District League might not have been formed and we might not have been playing competitive football.

Plus on the Ks archives for 1885/86 that picture of him looks like a statue already!

It would have to be Johnny Whing i think.
He made his debut in 1948 and played until 1962.
He remains our record goalscorer with a total of 295.
The man is a legend,i met him on a few occasions ,he
lived in Cherry Orchard Gardens ,West Molesey.

BFG. That way we'd have a significant amount of metal to sell if we ever got into trouble again.

You've not seen his The Cricket Match?

Last year I got a genuine signed copy of People Standing About a limited edition of 500, that particular one has an unfortunate reputation for fading, the glass on the one I bought was very grubby which probably put a lot o f people off because I got it for only £400. When we cleaned it up the colours look perfect, so a good example of a print signed by the man himself is still possible at less than the several or even tens of thousands many of them go for now.
