the shop where my mum bought my first football kit ever at age 7 in 1974. Man Utd (when everybody else wwas buying liverpool)
I got my Brownie Outfit from here.
They used to have a sign on the side of the building, "Make Oliver Somers Your Target for Sports Goods" Only the word "target" was not used, it actually was a sign painted to look like an archery target.
loved going in that shop as a kid so friendly ,like sherringtons on wallgate yes total different goods but same atmosphere, tim mac has gun shop in standish his shop felt the same last time i called in
It was one of the few places to get catty elacky from.
