About 10 or 12 years ago a cousin, who lives in Abergele, told me that “The Visitor” published photos of bygone times in the town so I sent this photo of the 1947 Abergele Grammar School Cricket Team to the paper and it was published.
Over the years more and more people have become computer literate and I thought the photo would reach a wider group of readers, so here it is again!
At the time I could not remember some of the lads’ names but apparently Tudor Williams called the paper giving the missing ones and it was published again with all the names.
They are :
Back row left to right:- John Manton, Brian Roberts (me!) Brian Ricketts, Tudor Williams, and John Roberts.
Front row left to right:- Mike Kirkham, John Parry, Ian Cumsty, Trevor Glyn ‘Jimmy’ Roberts and Tony Hind.
You will note that there are only 10 players on the photo, the other lad must not have been at school when the photo was taken!
