I’ve been a bit busy in the last 24 hours, but here’s a nice one to be going on with. his lovely footballing image of the 1st Walsall Wood Boys’ Brigade team was supplied by reader and contributor to the blog, David ‘Eddy’ Edwards, who features in it.
For those who maybe interested here is a photo of the 1st Walsall Wood Boys’ Brigade League & Cup winning football team from season 1960/61.
If it comes through the members are…
John Aspley, Chris Sweet, Dave Edwards(me), Jim Smith, Roger Faulkner, Dave Greenwood, ? Stokes.
D Craven, ? Harvey(muffin), John Heath, Barry Evans, G Sedgewick.
The photo was taken in the dressing rooms at Villa Park after the Cup Final of 1961.

I’d be interested to know what folk remember of this event – playing at Villa Park must have been a great experience for the lads. Was it a one off, or a yearly thing? Did any other local teams take part?
Thanks to David, as always, feel free to comment or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
