Ushaw Moor school football team 1946/7

Ushaw Moor school football team 46-47

Posted on behalf of Peter Clarke

Can anyone identify any teachers or members of the football team.

This photograph came to me by way of a distant relative Ray Wilkinson who I am sure will be on the photographs somewhere.

Cheers Peter Clarke

    Just had an email from Ray Wilkinson who is now 78 years and states that he is on both photographs. Ray left Ushaw Moor in the 50/60s and is now living in Doncaster. He is currently working on identifying everyone on both photographs. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

    Here goes – Back row Edward ATKINSON – Ronnie RICHARDON – Ray WILKISON – Kit STODART – Jack WATSON? – Tommy WALKER Front row – Robin PROCTOR – Ken SEED – Billy NATTRES – John WATSON – Brian JACKSON The teachers are Mr Ferguson who really hurt with his instrument of punishment ( my aunt Greta says poor Henry FACEY really suffered – he would get cained then and on the way back to his seat turn round and scowl and then get called back for another doze.) The other teacher is a Mr Trotter but not I believe the Art Master Mr Trotter who was there in 1953 when I started Junior School.

    Question mark after Jack WATSON denotes we do not know who the next guy is. Just realized we have only identified six of seven on the back row.

      Hi Alf I tried to post yesterday but don’t think it’s worked. My grandad John Watson has been looking for ken seed for a long time. Do you have any information on ken?

    Hi Nancy, I attended the funeral in Hartlepool of John Robson who died earlier this year. He lived in Bracken Court on the corner near the school His sister Margaret still lives in Ushaw Moor. He was a great footballer but I would not have thought he was as old as these lads. Second from the right, front row has got to be John Ramm!
