Jimmy Fairhurst - is that the same Jimmy who used to be a waggon driver for Jacob Haworth, and later had a cab on the Standishgate rank in Wigan?

I have another of my dad's old football photo's but it's taken when he's older & not at Abraham Guest.. The badge on their shirts has the initials 'TSSC'. Any of you guys any ideas what team this is?

Hi ttd, thanks for your message. Not been in the area for a long time, visiting in spring. Hope to see Alan, and his wife - don't know her name - well assuming he has a wife! J

Anna, there is another Abraham Guest football team photo with David (and me) at http://www.wiganworld.co.uk/album/photo.php?

I would very much like to see the other photo that you mentioned. Dave and I were in the same class at school and we were close friends, I even went on holiday with him and his parents once. I would appreciate it greatly if you would contact me privately by email ( franneil@talktalk.net ). I can supply you with a much better looking photo than the original one on Wigan World.
