this was taken in 1959 before the wigan and district schools cross country race at prospect park standish which was wigan ru club . i think the distance was 5miles the lads in the photo were john conroy alan bolton roy thompson jimmy johnson the lads kneeling are paul fairhurst steve price and gerry heys i think i have the names right. if my memory is correct gerry heys came in sixth place and i was fourteenth .which is not bad out of about 300 runners. i think wigan grammer school won it
