 KINDLY emailed to us by Anne and Mervyn Probert, this photograph (right) depicts Mervyn’s school football team of sixty-four years ago.

It shows the Stonefield (Bilston) side in 1947.

The names that Mervyn can recall are:- Back Row: Mr Brandwood, (?), (?), Tommy Alexander, Ron Jones, Bill Cooper, Mr Fellows.

Front Row: Sammy Burgess, Billy Timmins, Mervyn Probert, Alan Humphries, Joe Phillips, Terry Evans.

Mervyn, who attended Stonefield from 1945 until 1949, writes, “I am sure some of these old team mates are still around but most will now be in their mid- seventies.

Hope it jogs a few memories”.
