Footballers 1950-51

Footballers 1950-51

A proud football team, must have been a good season!

Back row:-  Thomas Cummings, Derick Arden, Ronnie Knight, Sidney Robson, Peter Campbell,  Ken Johnson, Micheal Cornforth, Brian Cole.

Seated:-  Brian Hall,  Reg Wilson,  Michael Grant, Tony Trattles, Alan Chester, Harry Jopling, Mr Richardson.

Were you at the school when Mr Richardson came?  The first male teacher we had come into contact  with; he set girls hearts a flutter! John Richardson tells us: ”Mr. Richardson was my uncle Dennis, I remember my Gran saying that he was much sought after by the local young ladies. Eventually he married my auntie Ruth Nellist of Brotton. In the early 1960s he took over as headmaster at Gilling West, near Richmond, and finally moved on to Stillington near York, where he retired from teaching.”

Thanks to Mike and Billy Parkin for the missing names; also to John Richardson for the update.
