I'm in complete agreement with you Don on this one. Brilliant to see a photo of Pop Kennedy and Mr Larkin. Don't know any of the players (I was only 3 in 1947)but remember the Springfield Boys Club well.
Allan, I take it that you're the A.Bolton in the photo.

[b]It was "Conk" Kennedy when I was there, but I did a bunk & went to Gidlow in '49. That team would be about my brothers age, Bill Silcock was in the same class, I also remember Philbin, & Mr larkin of course...Nice chap he was. Conk warmed my hands a time or two with his cane, it was like goin' to jail, gettin' to his office. Is the A Bolton from Woodhouse Lane, near the dogtrack?[/b]

Bernard Moxham is my Uncle. I'll make sure he gets to see this, I'll tell my Dad Kevin.
