THIS photograph of schoolboy footballers takes us back around 47 years and has been sent in by Clive Corbett.

Clive writes, "Here is the Brook Street Primary School, Wordsley, football team from 1967-8, managed by the great George Yardley.

"The picture is taken on the Stuart Crystal playing field that is now of course totally built on.

"I am ashamed that I cannot name everyone but these are the name I can remember:

"Back row: unknown, Royston Pinder, Martin 'Tom' Bate, Clive Corbett, unknown, and Chris Geary.

"Middle: Stuart Lowe(?), Michael Billingham, and Stuart Ford.

"Front: Mark Nicholls, unknown, Peter Russon, Andy Simpson, Mark Rowley, and Paul 'knocker' Knowles."

Do you recognise these lads and can name the unknown players? Send in your own school pictures, contact dshaw@ blackcountrybugle.co.uk or write to Bugle House.
