NOSTALGIA: Football team line-ups through the ages (Part 1)

Shilbottle FC - CWS (All England) winners 1934
Shilbottle FC - CWS (All England) winners 1934

Gazette reader Bob Clark provided us with a couple of photos which feature two football teams from north Northumberland.

This one is of Shilbottle FC, who were the CWS (All England) 1934 winners.

Back row, from left, are: T Bell, H Wood, T Hodgson (captain), T Pigg, G Batey, R Slater.

Front row, from left, are: J Brown, R Clark, J Cameron, J Green, A Graham.

The second photograph, on a separate story, is the team at Amble Catholic School, 1955-56.

We also have names for this one, but it’s fun to let our readers see who they can spot first.

The names will be published next week.
