David Barlow signed for the club as an amateur player in March 1961. He scored on his début and was selected for the first team six weeks later. David left the club in June when a Second Division London club signed him for £1,000.
In 1971, Dave Smith served on the club's board of directors, but did not have a controlling share. Both Irma Barlow and Bet Lynch had affairs with player Eddie Duncan and their partying affected Eddie's playing, much to the displeasure of the menfolk of the Coronation Street.
Their current sponsors are the Weatherfield Gazette.
