WE’VE featured a wealth of old football teams from the West Bromwich area of late, and here aris another for your delectation.

Like the majority of those in recent editions, it has kindly been put our way by local author Terry Price.

The picture shows Hateley Heath FC, at a time when, one would assume, there was a lot less football being played than was normally the case.

The picture is dated 1917-18; the final days of the First World War. We have no information on where the picture was taken, but it was very often the case that local teams used a local pub as their headquarters and changing rooms, before hobbling over to the local park for their fixtures.
