Football Team
Football Team ?
The year is unknown but the goalies hat might give the year away to some football fanatic, I would guess 1910 any offers.

This photo could be of the St Marks Temperence Football Team

I remember Gordon Egerton. He was a few years older than me and was in the "top class" when he first came to my attention, he was a hero to us lads because he was the best footballer in the school, at least he scored most of the goals, lots and lots of them as he was a big strong lad and played at centre forward. We youngsters used to watch him play in school matches that were played outside school hours.
If I am not mistaken, Bolton Wanderers took him on their books but I don't think he ever made the first team.
Two other good footballers in the same class and school football team were Ernie Matthews and Jimmy Jackson.
Hindle Gregory Class of 1952
