FOR ALL those readers who have had quite enough football for one lifetime, here's a bit of a diversion in the form of a local athletics team.

It comes to us by email courtesy of reader and former Grammar School boy Ray Stokes. The boys in question were pupils of Dudley Grammar School in the early to mid-1950s, and Ray has provided names for almost all portrayed.

They are, from left in the back row: Powell (J), Holmes, ? , Nicholls.

Middle: Roden, Childs, Crofts, Tilley, Powell (D.A.), Cook.

Front: Stokes, Farmer, Hobbs, Eales, Griffiths, ?. "Several of those pictured also represented Dudley Schools at the Worcestershire County Sports at Halesowen in June 1953," Ray remembers. They were Holmes, Nicholls, Eales, Griffiths, Tilley, Stokes, Farmer and Roden.

Were you a member of your school's athletics team? Can you fill in any of the missing names for this photograph? Write in to the usual address, give us a call on 01384 567678, or email gjones@blackcountrybugle.co.uk.
