Here’s a head scratcher from friend of the blog Martin Littler, who’s contributed so much previously to Brownhills Local history – and this time he’s come up with a cracker for a Bank Holiday Monday.
Martin supplied the above fantastic 1957 Watling Street school football team, featuring a very familiar name, and wrote:
I thought this may be of interest to some of your readers, its a photo of the football team Watling Street School 1957, the teacher on the photo is Mr Arthur Shingler, he has been on other photos in the past on your blog, when he was teacher at Walsall Wood.
The boy sitting on the ground far right is Paul Nicholls; on the second row seated second from the left Graham Ward; on the same row seated far right is Peter Fletcher; on the back row in the middle goal keeper is Michael Morris.
It may be of some interest to Mike Stackhouse who may be able to add some more names to the photo.
I think Mike Stackhouse will indeed be very interested in this one!
Thanks to Martin for another excellent contribution – you lot know what to do: please comment here of mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
