Not sure of the year of this one but Allan Hindley was born in 1934 so probably 1950s? His mother was Ellen Eccleston.(married Albert Hindley) Left to right as far as I know are Bob Ashurst, Ellen (nellie) Hindley, Albert Heaton, Elsie Heaton (nee Eccleston) and Renee Liptrot

Bob Ashurst was goalkeeper for Moss lane Juniors in 1952.
First time I've seen or heard anything of him since then.

Allan Hindley's wedding to Beatrice (nee Bragg) took place in March 1957. I am their eldest daughter born in May 1958. Bob Ashurst has died now but Marian still lives in Blackpool. I don't know Renee Liptrott but the other guests in this photo have gone now. Allan and Beatrice are still alive and live in Orrell.
