Chance find of ’46 match ticket shines light on Doon’s football past

DEHRADUN: The chance discovery of a ticket to a football match, buried at the bottom of a trunk for over five decades, has unveiled a glorious piece of Dehradun's football history.

Not many football enthusiasts in the city were aware that an all-star cast of footballers of that time, including Ted Ditchburn, who represented the England football team along with Robert Jack Robinson and Johnny Morris (who played for Manchester United) played in the Tommy Walkers XI against the Dehradun Area team in the city's famous Pavilion Ground in 1946.
