A couple of faces look familiar, although the only persons name I remember is George Sandiford the metalwork master on the far right.

My cousin, Bobby, back row extreme right. Raymond Winnard, front row, extreme left; and Alan Farrington, back row, extreme left. Bri Dawber's brother, captain, holding the ball.

Is that the Alan Farmington that went on to sign for Wigan Rugby??

It is Alan Farrington

I realised it was Alan Farrington after I had mistyped it but couldn't alter it. Is it the same one. Certainly looks like him.

It is broady, he lived on Norley Hall Ave, if Alan Law doesn't name them by next week then I will.

I know this is slightly off point, but I'm looking for anyone who may have known Phillip Burrows. He attended Pem Boys 1969 - 1974 (think it turned comp in the last year and changed name). He lived in Helvellyn Road, Norley. Maybe someone had a younger brother who knew him. If you can help, please e-mail me at
