Is the lad at the back on far right David rigg?
This must have been an inter house team.I am sure all these lads were in the same year but not the same form.There were four hoses at school.Raynor, Langton,Eckersley and Leyland.
That's right lumper.I was in the B stream with Paul and Whatty.If my memory serves me right i was in Leyland house.
I seem to think this team was Langton.There were plenty good players in this year
Is this the frank farimond who knew my brother derek ashcroft if so im his brother young ash I was also in leyland group I know you do you remember me and does anybody know if erik bamber is still with us and how I can contact him thanks everybody.
Hi Brian,I am the same one,yes.How are you?
Hi frank im not to bad keep going living in standish now been here for about 30 years.
I'm in Preston now.Only been here three years though
Hi frank do you ever see any old school mates glad to hear your ok regards brian.
Hi Brian,not really.Dave Varey's usually in Last Orders when i go down but that's about it.
I think this is the Langtree( green ) House team not the school team. I believe it is Dave Rigg is back row far right. Frank you used to play goal keeper and center forward if i remember correctly. I also think David Varey is front row 2nd right.Other Faces are familiar and my guess is the year is 1963 or 64
Apologise for error yesterday yes it is Langton not Langtree. The other colours where Raynor - yellow; Leyland- Red and Eckersley - Blue
Alan, Iam sure you were in Raynor,I was useless at football but we did we go fishing together
Hi Peter, yes I was in Raynor and remember well how we went fishing and also represented Wigan fishing team at National level. Still a dab hand at fishing when I get back to Wigan
Alan. What was the name of the river we fished when we represented Wigan Witham or Welland. The brain is slowing down
It was the River Witham .I also took you to Lancaster canal at Garstang by bus and the River Ribble. Those where the days when life was simple and fun
