A NEW Zealander has contacted The Chronicle to help with his quest for information from two centuries ago.
Charles Ketchley is looking for any living relatives of Thomas Fleming who played football for Chester FC from 1884-1896.
Mr Ketchley has a gold medal which was presented to Mr Fleming at Chester Hospital on Saturday, May 3, 1890.
He said: “The medal was left to me by my late stepfather Charles Fred Everard who to my knowledge had no interest in soccer at all so maybe he was connected to the Fleming family in some way.
“Any information would be most helpful.”
If you have any information about Thomas Fleming please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01244 606411.
