265700 Darrell & Kathy <larchmont@s...> 2018‑04‑11 Another interesting plane iron logo

Following up on Gary May's Governor plane iron logo...
I think I mentioned this one before, oh so long ago, but then again, maybe not.
The maker of the iron is L. Osbaldiston, Sheffield, "Hydra" brand.
And there is a logo which (if I am not mistaken) is a leg kicking a football
(soccer ball, Paddy).  I don't know if there is enough detail to figure out
which team it is, but whoever made this iron was a big football fan.

For your viewing pleasure:

Upon close inspection with the 10x loupe the bit under the leg & the ball
appears to be grass, not a name.   I thought at first it might be a team name.
