THIS photograph recently came to light, and the sender hopes that Bugle readers will be able to supply more names of players — and information on the team depicted. The photograph appears to date from the 1940s or 50s and shows a team by the name of Tipper Brothers FC, which was associated with the company of that name from Bradley, Bilston.

Mrs Jayne Church of Coseley, recently sent this picture in to us, with the following covering letter...

“My nan passed away recently, Mrs Olive Jones of Attwell Road, Princes End, Tipton.

“On clearing her house with my mom and family we came across this photograph of my grandad Joseph Edward Jones, better known as Ted, in a football team called Tipper Bros. My grandad is the goalkeeper shown “Also in the photograph is my nan’s sister’s husband Benjamin Hawkins (who is the first player on the left in the middle row.

“I would like to find out the date of the photo and the names of any other players. If any Bugle readers are able to help I would be grateful”.
