The final was played at Springfield Park with Sacred Heart winning 1-0. Still can't remember the name of the cup.
That Ronnie Marsh(all),on the far right, back row, wouldn't be Stan Marsh from Martland Mill, normally called "Bannie", Would it?
He looks very familiar to me.
Hi Art. The names Stan Marsh/Bannie don't really ring a bell but 54 years is a long time and my memory is frequently "iffy".
yes art, you are right, it is "bannie marsh"
Hi Art/Tony. Merci. One down and two to go. Tony, is your second name Jones?
Aye, I went to school with his elder bro' Johnny. I knew all the family.
Just a thought: These days, how many footballers would line up for a team photo...."WEARIN' CLOGS" ;O)
Used to wear 'em meself...
yes frank, it is.
Hi Art/Tony. A hidden touch of comedy. In addition to clogs, a few in the back row, including my brother John, are wearing their ordinary "leather" shoes whilst normal socks abound. They don't seem to have been very well organised on that particular day. Maybe the photographer turned up on the spur of the moment.
Tony. I recognised you immediately on the SWL Cricket Presentation photograph but for the life of me I can't think of the connection by which I know you.
ditto frank, i know your name, but can't place you. i went to sacred heart, then john fisher.
I'm fairly certain that you're quite a bit younger than me, so don't think it was from school. I went to Sacred Heart from 1949-55 and then WGS.
frank, i was at sacred heart 51-56
Hi Tony. That's really surprised me. It could be Sacred Heart that I remember you from but something at the back of my mind keeps suggesting a later date. If I ever remember I'll let you know. Possibly, you might remember my youngest sister Elizabeth?
Although I am not in the photo I know some of the lads in the photo and I have a photo of them when they attended St john Fisher.I emigrated to Australia in 1958 David Latham to this day makes contact with me and you are correct it is Stanley Marsh.
Saw my brother John, for the first time in many years, just before Christmas. It is John Calderbank; the final unknown is Anthony(Tony)or Brian Ellison. The opponents were Beech Hill who were strong favourites to win, the cup was possibly the "Smith Cup" and John Roscoe was the likely scorer. He agrees with my memory of the Springfield Park pitch being massive for 10/11 year olds: "run half the length of the the pitch and you were knackered"
bask row right hand side stanley marsh not ronnie. the marsh family lived across from the canal ay markland mill,next door to my uncle able. 1 was in that year at sacred heart with all this team.
I believe Tony Ellison (?) is indeed Tony Ellison. I knew him at the Thomas Linacre School.
