I BUY The Bugle every week and it is a joy to read. Why I am writing to you is that I recognised one of the players in the Hingley athletics club 1919 picture in The Bugle (May 15 edition).

The man on the back row last on the right is my great great grandfather Joseph Russon. He married Susannah Parkes who is buried in St Andrew's Church, Netherton, and had 21 children but no fewer than 16 survived. I have also had other family members work and play at the Hingley Athletics Club before its closure.

I'm sure Keith Taylor from Cradley Heath would appreciate having one name to a face in the photo.

Sharon Russon.
