Finals Day at the 1st Romford Closed Championships held in 1938. A couple of years later would see League play suspended due to the start of the Second World War and not returning until 1946. But League play has been continuous since then. There is also a picture giving names to some of the faces and you may wonder who is featured in the picture and are there any 'famous' faces. Well I can say there is...........the young lad in the front row (second from the left) is none other than Johnny Leach MBE who was to become ETTA President. Sadly Johnny passed away in 2014.
