MALC’S BACK with his Ripley’s Reminiscences!
Today we bring you a photo taken on Market Hill of members of a youth club which used to meet in what is now the Church Hall in Magdalen Lane. It’s believed to have been taken in 1950/51.
Malc tells us that on the very back row, are:- Reg Richardson, John Simpson (played soccer for Huddersfield Town and York City at left full back, therefore John often ‘Marked’ the great Raich Carter), and Roy Moon.
Middle:- Ian Mallory, Colin Thompson, Pete Robson, Rex Brunneye, Alan Hunter, Alan Smith, Arthur Claxton, unknown to Malc.
Front:- Colin Nelthorpe, Rich Claxton, John Martinson, and Ken Bryan who lives in Weymouth, and another fine footballer.
If any reader can add any further information about the photograph – please leave a comment below.
