The big profile on that time was Åke Lassas. On the picture under here is Åke standing to left, together with Begnt Bornström, Lollo Lassas and Gunnar Jönses. Åke had he’s debut 1940 and he played as far as 1965. He played in Leksand when they won over Wifsta/Östrand with 9-6.

The match was popular. Between 12 and 14 thousand persons was there. Leksand open the match best and did the first goal. But Djurgården improved themselves and could do 3 goals and win the match with 3-1. Leksand taken the silver, but first ten years later could Leksand win their first gold.
