With a team like that it is no wonder that they won. David Bolton, Keith Holden and Brian Callaghan became pros but at school Keith Barker was the star. Somehow he did not go on to become well known. Brian Lea (not Lee) was my mate.

Hi Frank,

I'm the son of Brian Lea and I've just seen your message regarding this photo and told my Dad about you.

He wants to know your full name please?

Hi Gary Lea
I have just seen your comment.
I am Frank Atherton who lived in Haig Street. It must be 60 years since I last saw your Dad. I hope he is still around and you can remember me to him. Is his cousin Tony Grimes still alive.?
