Many thanks, George, for colouring this photo; you've done a magnificent job! It's quite likely that other team-members and Sportsmaster Mr. Peet will have seen this photo in b/w, but for them to see it here and now will surely find their pleasure enhanced in having done so. It's great to see those tangerine & black socks again that I sometimes borrowed from my brother. The Manchester United socks worn here by Peter Draper were of a type that was difficult to find. Peter (being pretty smart) decided to have a pair hand-knitted for himself and in doing so, became the first lad in the entire school to own a pair. Continued thanks, George.
Does anyone know of any of the lads now?Where are they and what are they doing?
I was at upholland sec modern in 56/57 and played for the football team..i recall some names from that time who were in the team and also played for wigan boys team ..keith phillipson,john barton,colin jones and myself .david peet was involved with the sec modern team and the wigan boys team..he was a terrific man and a terrific teacher..
I left Billinge & Upholland Sec.Modern in 1960. I remember Mr Peet, Mr Clarke, Miss Cornelius, Mr Wiggles worth etc - I wonder if any of them are still alive ?
