It was brought in by Les McGivern, who is on the far right on the back row. He can name most of the team, who were, (back from left): ?, George Clewlow, Over Wilson the pub landlord who was well known in Rugby and Les McGivern. (Front) ?, Tom Gaynor, ?, Alf Izzard and George Brown. Can anyone fill in the missing names?

Can you recognise Les McGivern in the football photograph too?

He’s the goalkeeper for Willoughby in this 1952 Ralli Cup final against Churchover, which his side won 2-0. He also remembers the referee Edgar Morgan and the player behind him Derek Carter. That season Churchover also won the league and Willoughby were second. Anyone know the other players?
