I recognise my old mate Eric O'Neil as captain. We played on the same rugby team at John Rigby.
i too played with eric at john rigby a fine stand off. the lad on the back row third from left looks like peter farrell
I think Peter Farrell (Andy's dad} is 5th from left on the back row, could be wrong though.
oops should have said third from right sorry ,i think it looks like peter farrell also tuddy
back row, extreme right, Joe Stridgeon and back row 2nd from left, Neil Lyons.
I thought that lad looked a lot like Neil Lyons.May know a few others on the picture.
I remember playing against this team when I was at St Benedict's, Hindley. We'd only just started out, and we played St Pat's at their ground. They absolutely destroyed us! They passed the ball like professionals.
The tall lad in the middle of the back row, I think is Tony Frain ?.
Are they all wearing their 'SAINTS' jerseys?
The tall lad on the back row certainly looks like Anthony Frain..he's my mum's cousin
the tall lad is tony frain i they had a good team played for st josephs in 60/61 amd he was in the pats team hard player to tackle they used to ply on the chemic at the side of the cut what a crazy pitch ! ball kept gooin int cut!
